3.2 Di-D change to common rail

Mon Jul 08, 2019 4:08 pm

Good day
On the 3.2 engine, when (year) did they change to Common Rail and when did the Common Rail engine got powered up from 120 kW to 140 kw ?
I drive a 2008 model year and the engine cover says very clearly "COMMON RAIL"

The 2006 3.2 DIds were non common rail "run out models". 2007 were common rail. In +- mid 2010 the 140 kw engines were introduced, IOW an early 2010 can be a 118 kw and a later 2010 can be a 140kw. Beware however because some people purchase a vehicle only to register it some time later and if this is at the stage where models / features change it can be a problem. The blister fender was introduced in '99 and I often see a non blister fender advertised as a "99 :evil:

Thanks Peterpot
That clears it up for me. Since I drive 2008 (March 2008 first licensed) I have a common rail engine but only 120kw, not that I am complaining.
