Firstly ,my apologies if this subject has been covered before I did a search but didn't turn up anything.
Intending to purchase two T30 X trails in the new year for myself and my wife . Probably be circa '06. Due to the high road fund tax over here in Ireland,the rates being €614 2.0 petrol and €823 for 2.2 diesel , I'm trying to establish the pros and cons betwen the two.
Economy aside ,because we have a couple of vans that are used daily , is there any advantage between the two. I'm particularily interested in any DMF , turbo and intercooler issues and any problems associated with the petrol version.
I do all the servicing and repairs on our vehicles so any hands on info would be of great value.
Looked for some time for a UK X trail site and am looking forward to familiarising myself on these cars .
Cheers

Hi, How are things in the Kingdom?
If you don't need back seats consider the commercial version. The road tax is €288.
Regards Gabriel.
