  1. To be fair,doing 700 miles a week in any diesel is useful. Think of taxis. Private low milers have lots of injector/filter issues,but if you think of 300k mondeos etc they power on no problem if used. its when use is sporadic that problems start. when people moan of a bad one,tends to be low mileage with a few years under its belt. Don't think you can go far wrong with a diesel of any sort doing proper miles. just my two penneth....
  2. I always had teng when I was a technician. then less and less stockists for returns. halfords are everywhere and I believe don't muck about changing stuff. Kudos to them!! All that said,only broke a torx,but no messing

    EGR bollocks

    Cleaner emmisions plus the ability to run on shite quality fuel,so the engine is always comprimised and never performing properly. Stop/start is prime example of emmision swindling. no emmisions at lights so really clean. Far too over complex. My daily is a 520d and im worried when its only doing short journeys. Ridiculous that I'm worried to use a modern as an actual form of transport!!! Bollocks!!
  5. recognise that registration. Are you Penketh way? jJust that and the alpacas in your resto thread makes me think

  18. Early 80's polo "formel e". 65 mph in second gear,68 in third. Then onto worlds tallest 4th gear with no torque. 60 and screaming or nothing. And brakes made from wood chippings. Actually it was a laugh to drive thinking about it now........and a stop start in 1983!!! Mk5 escorts really were the pits without power steering
