    Default 3CDTi V6 03 vs 05 model

    Hi I want to buy a 3CDTi V6, obviously the 03 will be cheaper than the 05 model, but can anyone tell me why and what they changed. Was there a problem with the 03 model?

    Depends if the 05 model is a pre or post facelift as its a bit of a change over year. If its got the Z30dt - later engine - then its a bit more powerful but the fule pump does not like tuning at all, however the earlier Y30dt engine is a bit more tollerant. Both engines are bacically the same, very reliable. Very few problems when compared to other engines. There is no real problem with either model to be honest, down to personal choice. The 03 model may be better spec'd though as VX sarted penny pinching on the later models.

    All depends on your budget, model and personal preference
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    i have the pre face 05 and it does not have the chrome window strips, the clocks will look different and you get no sunglasses holder, but you do get full canbus and not those push button type audio wheels.

    The Euro 4 184PS engines do tend to be a bit conservative on the power stakes, my old one pulled 199bhp. (Rolling road so only as accurate as the rolling road).
