    I would like to think they are ok as years ago I had an XR3i with 139000 on the clock with no issues! If an old design engine can do it I would like to think a newer one can too. I believe its all down to how they are treated.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    yes it is just make sure it gets the right oil every 10,000 miles/12 months, just drive it, it will give no more problems than ANY other car, my first vec I sold it on 178,000 miles THEN the buyer used it as a knock about for some years, I bought it on 70,000 miles but changed the oil every 5000 miles, perhaps thats why the lump gave no trouble.

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    If it's as good as the 1.8 one it replaced and is based on, and it's properly looked after, I see no reason why not.

    Design life is 250,000km. Looked after and driven carefully it should last longer. If thrashed it won't last that long.

    Obviously any engine can fail at any time but still!
