This engine is showing 148000 miles and had a top-end rebuild at 115000 miles. This included lapping in the valves, plus new timing chain, guides and water pump. The engine performs very well. From inside the car it sounds very smooth with no untoward sounds, and accelerates very quickly through the auto gearbox. Note that my smartphone video camera seems to exaggerate engine noise and can make a sweet engine sound like a bag of nails!
