If the timing belts are being done make sure they replace the oil pump as well. Dont take it otherwise as the old pump casing will likely fail after the new timing belt resulting in engine failure.
I did mention about if oil pump a problem forgot what the reply was but not actually done the deal. So when I next speak to him will add it to my list of wants to seal the deal. Glad took them time to ask rather than get my fingers burnt.
Sounds like I need to try a D4 then see for myself difference. Is oil pump an issue on them as well?

I’ve not heard of my with the D4 but my D3 was sold with 160,000 on the clock and was still a dream to drive so I am hoping the D4 will be as good, I am sure there will be members with a lot of knowledge who will help you with your choice good luck
