Get a euro 4 140 2.4 no oil pump issues like the 2.2 and more grunt

155 never came out until late 2011

Thanks for your replys.
I have been offered a 2012 61reg 155 but after reading comments im not sure it they are as good as the 2.4 euro 4 engines I need to carry 2 motorcycles tools 205 ltr of water pressure washer etc etc and then hook up a 4 berth caravan.
Do you guys think the 155 is good or should i hang out and pick up a 2.4 140 ?
I have a 2003 100hp fwd at present and it struggles up the hills!

The 155 is good, but probably harder to find!
Personally I don't think there's much difference
