I am considering upgrading to the TDV8 rather than fitting LPG with all its hassles to my 2006 V8 Vogue. I am interested in experience of this engine which is more powerful that the Petrol, Smoother and returns 26 mpg on combined?

I now own a pristine 2007 Vogue TDV8 with 38k, amazed by the difference in the 2007 cabin which is essentially exactly the same as 2009. Very happy boy. No more thoughts of LPG conversion for me. :dance:

Wow! I guess you're not one for sittin' on the fence! 6 hrs between considering & owning one?
Congratulations! :thumb: I wish we could get the TDs over on this side of the pond.

Ha! 6 Hours to go from thinking to owning brilliant.

Think you made a good choice i keep considering changing mine (V8 Lpg) to the TDV8 after driving a friends chipped car, it went like stink and yet can still produce decent economy.

Hope you enjoy it.

Seriously I am guilty of that sin :oops:

I really liked the excellent 2002 V8 but was used to a newer car, the 2006 was great in every way other than economy and I decided against my original LPG plan so it had to be a TDV8. I started looking this morning and found one in my exact colour combo at a great price from an Independent only 30 minutes away. Went to see it at lunchtime and it has a full national main dealer only record at 38k, 1 (Rich) owner, still in LR Warranty and pristine A1 condition. Why wait so I put down a 2K deposit and pick it up after a Main Dealer pre delivery check in the morning. :dance:

Never could wait for what I want :lol:

They are the Heated/Cooled seats dials. The Vogue SE has this as standard whereas the Vogue does not.

See pic.....

Perfect and many thanks. It looks better with these dials but unfortunately I only have the Vogue which is otherwise VERY nice inside.
