Good morning big d , my cousin bought a new 2.0 d zetec back in 2003, it was a fantastic car back then , I only drove it once, but back then it was a REALY fast car ! And big mpg ! My mk4 I got back in December, it was a cat d , fully repaired with 61000 on the clock , it's a panther black 2009 titanium x sport 2.2 , I REALY love it, it's fast for a big heavy car, got every extra you could want, it looks real nice with the body kit , twin tail pipes , was a bit worried about buying a cat d , but this ones been looked at by the AA and they say there are no issues with the repair , but back to the point ! Your 2.0 mondeo is so mutch better mpg than mine ! But mine has 45 bhp more, and all the stuff to make it run cleaner , I've looked at having the remap and the filter thing removed, but I don't REALY want to mess with it, the car runs brill, n if I take it easy I can get nearly 40 mpg , n for a big powerful car , to me that's pretty good , my last three cars were bmws , a 330d e46 2001. A 320i e90 2005 , and a 730d 2008. Had problems with the last two, slack timing chain on the 320i only BMW would look at it, they were fantastic service at calterdons Inverness , but £90 per hour ! £160 to change the spark plugs! Had to strip half the engine to get to them! N a oil leek , cost me £1400 to sort! Traded it for the 730d after two years picked it up Friday, it caught fire on the Monday morning! Total right off Electrical falt ! So no more BMW,s for me!
