Hey, this thread is active! It's a bit like the old days!!
My TDCI also had loads of extras from new (Recaros, nav, xenons, etc.), and I got it at six months old, so it cost me a reasonable amount of money. It's only on 54k, and hasn't caused me much grief in eleven years so I'm not planning to sell it any time soon.
That's pretty good Terrie. I walked into my 220 purchase with eyes wide shut. Although mine had the Advanced BT Denso, it didn't come with Xenons? Eventually I had them retrofitted them during 2010 and what an awkward job that was. The car was 8 months old when I got it and I think the owner of Archers of Ashby used it as a runaround. When I picked it up, the BT and voice control wasn't working. They didn't even bother to check it...nor did I...doh! Mind you, I didn't have a BT enabled phone back then.
So yeah, picked her up mid-June 2006 with 8k miles on it and then a week later the engine failed and it had to go back. They also fixed the BT and voice control at the same time.
During mid Jan 2015, after a long trip back to London, I pulled into the local Co-op car park to get some beer. When I drove away, the differential failed...nightmare lol.
However, the car also developed a curious hesitation at around 2500 revs, was "pinking" and also sometimes let out a huge cloud of blue smoke. It seemed to drink oil faster than it ate front tyres. Also had a habit of warping the front brake discs. I tried many supposed decent brand name discs but after 10,000 the dreaded braking shudder would return?
She managed to get up to 115k miles before I took her off the road.
