Would you swap a 159 JTS 2.2 + cash for a JTD 2.4?
OK, so I have this 2006 159 JTS 2.2 which I purchased at 50k miles and put another 10k in one and a half years. The car is fine and has had the stretched chain problem rectified, but I am just missing that lovely acceleration, owing to the torque of the diesel engine.
I have an opportunity to purchase a 159 2.4JTD TI, which has 57k miles on the clock, has been remapped and the problematic valve removed. I also know the owner quite well.
The question is - is it worth doing this? I will probably get about £4500 for mine and need to add another £4000 to purchase the TI. Is it worth it?
I do about 10k miles per year....
THanks for your advise
