    From what I can gather they're pretty solid engines matey. Lots of good stuff said about them on here. Go for it, you'll only regret it if you don't

    Had mine now for about 4 months now and hasn't missed a beat, only issues that i have seen on here are rocker covers can leak oil and you need to have deep pockets as fuel consumption is quite poor.
    Still it will put a smile on your face whilst making you broke lol...

    Has the silly grin subsided yet ?


    Mechanically you're looking for cambelt replaced: book 80,000/8 years... commonly 60,000/6 years or even 40,000/4 years as the old 3.0.
    Brakes: 314mm front discs (early models had smaller discs).
    Clutch: drive it like a granny and listen for crunching when changing between 3rd and 4th - can point to clutch/gearbox issues.
    Electrics: all switches and fitted toys working.
    Bodywork: straight all round. No signs of big repairs - plenty of younger drivers put them on the wrong side of a hedge.

    General ownership: don't expect brilliant economy... although driving sensibly you should safely manage at least 400+ miles from a tank with mixed urban/motorway.
