I had a 1.9 diamonique on a 53 plate, half leather trim and it was an absolute gorgeous car, but it liked to blow turbos for fun. 3 in 6 months to be precise. Its original one, and 2 recons. add to this a slight split in a fuel pipe that kept causing it to stall and refuse to start again, every time I got in it, a broken key card that cost me my first born son in payment for a new one,and drive shaft problems. I put it through the auctions and breathed a sigh of relief.
