1.9DCI's eat turbos and need VERY regular oil changes!

I'm sure then are plenty of good engines out there, just search for 1.9DCI problems on this forum!

Check it has FULL history, if not, I'd walk away!

Hello and welcome to the forum.

As Tigz says,type 'dCi' or 'Lag 2' into the search facility and read on......you may not like what you see.

Has the car got a warranty with it?.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

In my opinion, if its a Dci, dont buy it ! Thats my opinon though. More trouble than there worth.

But do as tigs says, and you should be OK.

Also make sure you buy a comprehensive warranty with it, you'll need it.

As you can see from the answers above I am glad I bought the petrol engined one.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
