Hi,what is the "VED"?I just got a cmax 2.0 titanium second hand[img]smileys/smiley4.gif[/img]
I'm affraid I can't comment on UK market, where I think it's much cheaper.
For European Market (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy):
Little 2.0 available, much more 126.96.36.199 is special ford engine and not much more powerful than 1.6. In addition it does not have DPF (diesel particul filter)-- > ignore that engine! Go for 1.6 TDCI, or if really needed 2.0TDCI.
Also, well Titanium is nice inside, but I notice "professional dealers" or private sellers often want much more under the "arguments" that titanium has better equipment- Sometimes it has the "gps inside", etc... Of course the "gps inside" is a rubbish blackpunt unit or anything deadly old.
If your not stuck to the inside, go for any model-(Ghia, Style, zetec, whatever)If really wanted/necessary you can probably fit the extra equipment for much much much cheaper than the wanted price.
For example in some country "titanium" means: privacy window, optional parking censors, and xeon lights. They often ask for much more money (1500euros easily) although fitting those separately (when possible) would cost much less.
Moreover, if you could wait I suggest you to get the new Ford 2.0, not titanium.It's probably better to get as the fuel consumption, electronic inside, etc... have been much improved! you will save on taxes and fuel- Probably wait a few months until companies start to sell their "professional cars" with relatively high mileage but in good condition.
Ok thats it![img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]
