Clio dCi 65/80/100. How d'you tell them apart?
I'm in the market for a 2nd hand car to replace my 1.9 205 GTi
. I'm after something that will be cheap to run yet not too boring, so I'm currently considering a 3-4 year old Clio dCi.
What I can't figure out though is how can you tell visually whether it's the 65,80 or 100 bhp version? AIUI, the dCi 80 has an intercooler whereas the 65 doesn't, but that's not much help when squinting at the pictures on autotrader.
To make matters worse, there seem to be a few cars on autotrader being advertised as dCi 100s despite being registered in 2001. Didn't the dCi 100 come out in 2004 or something?
Also, does anyone know if there's a good buyers guide anywhere? I've googled around and not found anything. I'd feel happier if I knew what to look out for when looking at 2nd hand Clios.
