My old 2.2 DTi was an absolute cracker of a car. I could see 600-700 miles out of a tank no problem at all, and if I was careful on A roads, on my regular trips to Cheltenham, I'd see upwards of 50 miles per gallon without trying too hard.

Average was probably 43-45mpg.

If you're running a V6, you'll cut your running costs in half with a DTi. Nice amount of torque and ample power. I'd own one again in a heartbeat.

Bought mine for £180, only thing I ever had to do was an aux belt tensioner and a PAS pump, which were pennies at the scrappy. Went on to drive it to spain and tour around for thousands of miles, with roofbox and heavily loaded, never grumbled once.

It went to a good home after me - The only thing that killed it, eventually, was the old tin worm  :(

 ;D

I forgot that I bought it with a known fault. You’ve no idea how relieved I was that the revs
Issue was the clutch rather than the derv pump!

I did it on ramps in the street ;D wouldn’t contemplate that now :(

Practically the same torque, nowhere near the same BHP. Only really going anywhere when on the turbo so you tend to drive them like you stole them.

Whilst they have the torque, they certainly don't feel spritely like the V6 petrols.

Really easy to look after the 2.2DTi, much less temperamental than the V6s and everything is pretty easy to get to. Fuel system is the only special thing to make sure you look after well, otherwise utterly reliable.

Remap is very effective as are the usual mods to help the turbo spool up more easily. Standard trim, it's a bit of a plodder but perfectly OK. Post remap better performance, better real world fuel consumption and the engine runs more smoothly. Would never go back to a V6

2.5 smoother in standard trim and sounds less like a tractor when cold, not as economical, actually has less torque in Omega spec than the 2.2 but can be remapped if paired to a manual box. Can be had with an auto box if you want but don't remap an auto, you'll exceed the torque rating and blow up the box.

Engine bay way more congested. Getting pretty long in the tooth now and read the web pages for applications in BMW and Range Rover to get a good idea of common problems.

Can't really see the point as my remapped 2.2 is more powerful than the factory 2.5DTi that we never had in the UK and I have genuinely exceeded the manufacturers best fuel consumption figures and I can get at pretty much everything really easily to look after it.
