I have owned the V6 initale for the past two years. In my opinion its a lovely car, coupled with the tiptronic box it makes a really good drive. I also think out of the Lag 2's this engine is the least troublesome , it has a throaty sound on accelaration and is quite fast as well . Mpg can vary depending on how you drive it ... 50 mph = 40 ish mpg , around town 22 mpg , bit of cruising and town driving combined should return around 28 mpg.
Insurance is quite cheap for the V6 , its around group 13 .
Service comes around at 36, 000 .. 54, 000 with just normal service and 72,00 is the cambelt change.
If you can try for the initiale as it has all the toys.
Great car .. go for it my friend ..
Let us all know how you get on and good luck .....
