    Pug and Citroen Diesels are spot on... But then most diesels are.. 200,000 is a drive around the block for those diesels... same as the Ford Duratorq engines... they went on forever....

    My focus 1.6 Zetec SE has 87k on the clock.... i'm hoping I can put a lot more on it than that!

    I know that our Ford Focus 55 reg 1.6d has a peugeot engine, apparently. Car manufacturers always make bits for each other.

    Yup, all sorts of Bosch bits for example go into Vauxhall/Saab etc cars form the 90s. Interestingly enough, chassis get shared too.
    Interestingly enough, if you find a car with the same chassis, the engine mounts might be the same.
    Interestingly enough, if they're the same, the transmission might fit OR be hybridisable with your own/top model of your own.
    Interestingly enough, the other car might have more powerful engines in the range than yours...

    Guess what I did with this information?? ;P

    My 02 plate Honda Jazz and I did 175000 miles together before the gearbox finally failed on it (and even then it tried to carry on for a while without 3rd gear but the exhaust fell off shortly after and at that point I scrapped the car...)

    yup the fiat 500 is also the panda the ka and i think the so ugly it needs killing with fire ypsilon
    punto is iirc also the corsa and mito
    golf is leon/octavia/tt/a3/beetle at least

    its surprising (sort of) what from one car will fit another i know that over the years my fiestas have ended up with focus/mondeo/puma parts

    I thing my vauxhal signum 150 is just about run in at 157,000 on an 04 plate hopefully it should do at least the same again,

    had a seat Ibiza derv that had 220,000 on the clock when someone crashed head first into her gutted as the car was bulletproof (but not ford Granada proof )
