Value advice is suspect at best, rates a 4.2 Nasp V8 above Sport Diesel for residuals and traditional beige and woods above Sport interiors dark leather sport seats and contemporary aluminium trim. May reflect traditionalist tastes, but try buying an XS or Sport over the more common SE.
Book does not even mention the later 6-speed Getrag manual. Not a single decent over-view of underbonnet (let alone engine-by-engine), one photo of whole engine bay is of a V6 X-type which is transverse, no commonality whatsoever. Pretty essential for a buyer's guide.
Guidelines on component price are inexplicable and guide suggests using Ford components where equivalent is available, suggesting European Mondeo as a model with commonality. Other than V6 Engine block, I can think of very few components that could be shared that aren't oil filters or bolts.
One page suggests all cars have auto wipers, another that they do not (they don't incidentally). Again mentions contemporary colour schemes unpopular, completely contest this as prices and fast movement on market match high desirability of Sport, XS and R models, whilst SE which according to this book are most desirable are many in number and considerably cheaper. Diesel is by far most desirable power unit except for far rarer R version, for which most every day users will not consider.
I would buy an equivalent book when I come to change my car.
extremely good value.
