Hi as Zinx says do a forums search, from the description its a "New Generation Espace" the Espace3 phase3 or Mk3 Ph3 to you and me. Not all the problems carry over between versions, and dont get the dCi and dTi engines mixed up, a lot of nonsence is spoken and written and the engine technologies often get mixed up, so pay attention and you wont go wrong.

You will learn to love and hate the Espace, usually withing the same 10 minute period, but you get used to them and their little foibles .... but what ever you do check it out properly, and dont buy if there is ANY hint of electrical gremlins .... you will end up selling your house to get them fixed. Get a good one and it will be good, but there are plenty of dodgey/botched and ex-starships out there that you should avoid, just use your head and dont let the shiney paint and toys cloud your judgement and you'll be OK.

I've had three so I should have learned by now.

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
