Re: Which one? 1.5 or 1.9 ?

personally i would buy a car that has been home serviced, fairly low mileage but serviced every year regardless. (like mine) then i would go on doing the same, plus letting the turbo cool after anything but town work.

no as far as im aware you cant replace the turbo pipes.

i personally think the 1.9 gets a bit of a bad rep. most of the failures imho are caused by abuse. get a good one and look after it and it will go on forever.
Currently in qwakers's garage:
Lag II sold ;-( Yamaha R6 04 black/Grey RangeRover 4.0v8 towcar and bobtailed discovery for offroading.
