We've just bought a yet-to-arrive 3.0 V6 DCi Grand Espace. And while I'm thinking about it, prior to 2005 registrations (I think ?) are Band K Road Tax (=245/yr) and not Band L (= 425/yr), IINVMM. Same engine, same emissions, less tax

I considered the 3.5 but I do about 20k miles anualy! It would need to be 12,000 and less than 18 months old to attract me.

I think the 3.0dci was upgraded for model year 06 with higher touque and 6 speed auto ... So I'd prefer the newer version and accept the tax. I want a full Renault warrenty so LPG isn't an option ...
