Espace great am I lucky?

Hey guys. Big thanks to all the help received from here mind you but the Espace soldiers on - 2.2 DCI.

Had a new turbo at 75k when I bought it now over 133,000. I run it on fully synthetic oil , service it according to the OBC, keep the EGR valve clean and run it on the motorway a lot at high speed. Sure I've done work on it but I'm impressed, I love it!

I'm toying with the idea of another one....but I'm worried that I've been lucky with mine, or could another Espace potentially be just as solid if looked after in the same way?

Hopefully you're not alone, I should think there must be other's out there, it's just a matter of finding one.
