Should an early car 99/00 have a new cambelt by now, usually the interval is x miles or x years?
I have a 3.0 V6 Sportronic, and am loving it. Owned it for 6 months (a record for me) and am looking to be owning it for the forseeable future.
Specs on mine include:
- Beige MOMO leather seats
- Electric heated seats
- 17 inch alloys
- CD Changer
- Premium sound system (subs, amp etc)
- SAT NAV (retro-fitted by myself)
- Xenon headlamps
As far as economy goes.... there's another thread talking about this, but I'm more than happy with the economy of my 166 3.0. (22mpg on a stop start 8mile trip and 31-32mpg on a motorway run.....WAAAY less if you boot her !!)
Not sure I've read anything on the Sportronic being a money pit though... I haven't had any issues with mine (touch wood).
So anybody with info on this would be a welcome addition to this thread.
My opinion (partly because I own one !) is to go for the 3.0 V6....
