    I would say plenty of life in it yet.

    The main part has already been changed, the rest is usual service items.

    And no dought suspension components.

    I am a strong believer in frequent oil changes 5k, and all filters every 10k.

    Just treat the car with the thought that it has got over 100k on the engine and not thrash it around like a new car, and it will last many more years.

    Ok, thanks, the 1.8 seem a pretty straight forward bread n butter engine. My old one never caused me a problem, i got it with 30k on, sold it with 80k on trouble free.
