Question Megane DCi or DTi or avoid?

Hi there I am planning on getting rid of our problematic Focus and getting another Mk1 phase 2 megane I have my eye in particular on a two 2002 Diesel's one is a DTi the other a DCi.

Am I right in assuming that the DCi is quicker and both are turbo charged?

How long do the turbo 's usually last, both cars have arond 55k miles and how much do the Turbo 's they cost to replace?

Is there any key issues with the diesels that I should be aware of?

Would I be better of just sticking to what I know and getting another 1.4 16v model.

Thanks, Matthew
