Cant see there being any difference to be fair.. In fact The Later D4D is probably better on fuel... Im sure someone will know Better.... Good luck with the search.... Just my Opinion, But i would go with the 3.0 td over the D4D anyday....

?? I'm not sure where you're getting mpg figures from for the 90 vs 120, with basically the same d4d engine - they are very, very similar for the same driver profile. (30mpg should be achievable).

If there is any difference, then IMO it will be very slight (<10%) and a "sacrifice" I would happily make, for the extra refinement and comfort etc. of the 120.

Given the prices of some of the 90s posted above, I may have made a mistake - as they don't present as much VFM as I recalled and when compared against 120s - which for similar condition examples are only around 25-30% more and probably represent higher VFM, all things considered.

Hope that last bit makes sense (it does in my head but not so much on paper! :icon-wink:)

This should have my preferred engine for the 90 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/323764263596 a factory intercooled 1kz-te , easier to diagnose and modify . It's an import to so probably in good nick underneath .
That is one impressive Collie but it still needs to stand scrutiny underneath.

Having moved from Collie to 120 and run the 120 for a year now and also still being interested in both I can say that finding a good acceptable version of either will be a challenge. A 120 is a big step forwards in all respects from a Collie but comes at a higher price. If I had a certain budget to work to I'd sooner have a mint version of a Collie than a below average 120 for the same price an only one of them would be a money pit.
As far as running costs go, fuel has for me worked out that the 120 is about 10% less economical than the D4D Collie, with the ability to squeeze 500+ miles to a tank in the Collie but not with the 120.
