Re: espace mk3 or mk4?

Hi I have both a mk3 2.2dt "w" reg & a mk4 3.0dci (Awesome). The mk3 we have owned since it was about 18months old with 15,000 miles on the clock. It has now clocked up 182,000 miles albeit not trouble free. However the engine has never been apart not even for a head gasket, all that has been replaced engine wise has been service items plus glowplugs, water pump & timing belt other than that it has been reasonably reliable. As for the mk4 this car is amazing performance wise but is expensive to run 400 road tax & I don't agree with the mpg figures quoted ours isn't bad on a run 30+ maybe & mid to low twenties around town. We bought this car as it was top of the range 2 year old & less than 12,000. a steal .
