Both are mainly in auto, maybe only in auto if i remember right, correct me if wrong on that.
I would prob go for the 3.0dci if i had the chance to choose again, less stressed for the job in hand in my opinion.
Good luck, they are a fabulous car when everything comes together.
I must be imagining things so, I thought that the 3s were both diesels and were sourced from another company?
I had a really strong feeling that the larger diesels were sourced from Nissan/Isuzu, or somesuch?
I obviously need to research this more.
Hi yes both are auto box with semi_manual operation as well, i have the 3.5 v6 petrol which i have fitted petrol saver magnets too the inlet fuel line and it helps on the mpg and gives a power boost up to 12%_15% Gareth.
I clearly need to look into this more, I thought the 3.5 was a diesel.
Is there a 3.5 available in diesel at all?
I don't think I would be willing to pay the fuel and tax/insurance on a large petrol like that. The 2.0 I drive now is expensive enough!
The fact that the 3.0 is also a dCi puts me off a lot. Having read some of the threads about MAF/EGR/Coils/Cambelts/Gaskets/manifolds failures across the dCi range is a stong disincentive. I have no idea about cars ( and I still don't know what all those acronyms mean either
Have the larger diesels been a little more reliable?
