I wish I could agree but maybe I have the wrong engine - a 1.7 petrol. Mine is a pig to start up from cold, the EGR valve design plays havoc with the tickover and acceleration, tappets you have to adjust with shims , and gutless on power when going up inclines. BUT as a camper the interior design is excellent
