Hi I've got an 04 2.0DTI Elegance which is loaed with DVD in roof, CC, hetated seats, cd multi change. Best buy I ever made got rid of my 05 coupe for it. Now for some of the bad points had to have new diesel pump £2,450 ( would have to be the most expensive one the other one was £1,500 ) new EGR valve £456 then new MAF £313 ( Bosch, as pattern part wouldn't work ) all from stealers though. Last service at stealers cost me £250 but that was with all fluids changed and air-con de-bugged.With CC on you can get up to 70 mpg I know this as I get it on long runs. Normal running about I get about 50-55 mpg which is still pretty good if you look at the GSI only getting around 25-30mpg. Hope this helps.

I know but who'll take a car which wouldn't run and get a half reasonable trade in but runs like dream now well worth it, hopefuly it'll last a few more years then VXR baby sod the cost.

great engines on these very economical, no timing belt to worry about but would't pull the skin off a rice pudding (in my opinion) but there's some good tuning boxes/ remaps to be had that would put an extra 30+ on top of the 100bhp, as mentioned fuel pump failure can be a kick in the teeth! i had a dti astra mk4 estate and for a year and never let my down!

There are two types of dti engine the DTL (low pressure) or DTH (high pressure), From looking around the dth is the preffered option. the option i went for. and i can put the wife and 5 kids in stick it in 5th and cruise at 70 all day with out a problem. and i live in the middle of the moors.
