A big unstressed oil belcher like that should be capable of Starship mileage, I used to work in a VW main dealers back in the late 80's when the LT range had these engines, and can't recall any issues. I should think the main cause for concerns are overheating/head gasket, and cambelt. They do sound great these
Any good? if it's done that many miles it should be good for a few more, right?

I seem to recall they were 109-112bhp in the 740, and 120 in the later 940 with an intercooler. The autos aren't actually that bad - my first 760TD (also with over 300K on the clock) was an auto and it wasn't too bad at all. In fact when I went down with a trailer to collect it (the seller had described it rather pessimistically) I ended up slinging my Saab on the trailer and towing it home behind the Volvo to save fuel. Yes, I'd say you'd be daft not to have a punt at that money - if it's got a half decent MoT on it it's got to be worth 250-300 squid.
Yeah, it's on eBay, local-ish and 99 notes no reserve. Would be silly not to chuck a bid or two in, as it's a bit of a 'dream car' (shame it's a slushmatic). :lol:Do you know how much power these have? I've only found info for the n/a engine.
