Ok today I eat very humble pie :redface: After ripping of the diesel dogs on the forum for years, I finally drove my 4.2 tdi that I bought from David!

All I can say is Holy Cow this thing pulls like and tank and just keeps going and going, I can safely say I have never driven a vehical with as much torque as this motor, 5th gear up a hill and you just put your foot down and it just accelerates :surprised:

Ok I will admit it in public I and now a convert of "the Dark Side" :thumbup:
