It's a turbo diesel without the turbo!

Pretty weedy, very thirsty, a bit unreliable but very simple!

the 12j isn't that bad..... a 110 with a 12j is a lot cheaper than one with a tdi, and it will get it about until you swap the 12j for a TDi....

It's a matter of choice m8....both are 2.5/4cyl diesel engines... just that one has 67 bhp the other one 111 at approx. same consumption.
