Thanks for your honest opinions, pretty much as I suspected really. I believe they have to be driven pretty hard to get anywhere quickly and have heard of several common faults. Being a former dealer tech I know most cars will be perfectly reliable, we always had 'problem cars', most faults can be fixed, my logic is that a car with 40k on it will have had them sorted. Will ponder some more but thanks for the input.
P.S.....I believe a K series fits in quite easily.
