I agree about the "facelift" - that was when the "desire" was introduced with different bumpers,trim etc.
Yeah our 1.8 seems OK, a bit noisy first thing in the morning for a few mins, but quietens down after aftwards and is fine. As far as I know Citroen only did the 2.0 petrol engine twinned with an automatic gearbox in the Picasso.

When I said facelift I was talking "Ford" speak, I have no idea if Citroen called the 2003 onwards Pics facelift or not.
