hi there. i currently have a bmw 330d m sport on a 55 reg. it has the 3.0 turbo diesel engine as of the range rover and x5...

but what i want to no is this...

its called a td6 and they brought them out in 2002/2003.
but bmw 3 series or 5 series and x5 only started putting that engine in on 54 reg an onwards. before hand they were a 2.9 turbo diesel.

basically what am getting at. is the likes of a 52 plate td6 engine the 2.9 bmw engine or is it infact the 3.0

anythink to watcjh out for as im buyin one. only got about 12k to spend. so prob around 52 plate with average miles

Re: range rover 52 reg an onwwards td6 engines help on choices??

It's the M57 engine I think. I just know it as Td6.

It's a 2926ccm engine. Chances are, like most things BMW/Land Rover, it's whatever BMW had kicking around in supply at the time. Just like the M51 in the P38.

Yep, I also think the Range Rovers got the 2926cc M57 unit ([email protected], [email protected]) first introduced by BMW in 1998 for the 3/5/7 Series & X5. BMW introduced a more powerful 2993cc version for their vehicles from 2002 onward. So the Range Rover TD6 is actually a 2.9l and not a 3.0l :)
