But they aren't any more complicated than they where 50 years ago. They all work on the same priciples. Its just that now they are far more reliable and actually last a lot longer.
Thanks to computers and tech and sensors they all do their jobs far better and virtually on the fly. But the physics of how they work is the same. Just tooling and crafting and machine work is amazing copared to back then.
Any way I digress.
Its a good car. Don't be put off. The engine in the diesel are those that are used in vauxhall and Saab.
Its a brilliant unit. its good for 200hp out the box and the only really issues it has are with the EGR that need cleaning every now and then and making sure the cambelt, water pump and tensioners are replaced every four years.
Other than that shes's solid.
An that's just down to servicing.
