    Default Buying advice

    Hi all,

    I'm looking to change my 04 1.9CDTi (150) SRi for a 3.0CDTi Elite as I fancy a bit more comfort.

    Is there anything particular that I need to look out for

    And can anyone tell me the Cambelt situation on the 3ltr. Am I right in thinking that the engine is an Isusu lump?

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Thanks

    Why not do a few mods to yours to increase comfort. Conld put elite shocks on, softer. What comforts you after? Expensive way to get comfort!!

    I fancy a bit more of everything - nicer ride, leather, few more toys and a bit more POWER!!!

    I'm guessing that £2k on a new car is cheaper than messing with my SRi.
