    Hello guys, as you can see from the username, I am the proud owner of a low mileage 2006 FR-V 2.2 I-CTDI Sport bought last November.

    I found this very impressive site after an internet search a few weeks ago and have been inhabiting FR-V corner ever since. This is my first diesel car but have had a Peugot 2l HDi motorhome, followed by a Fiat 2.3 JTD version.

    The car was purchased for a return to towing a caravan, and is now fitted with the towbar ready for our first tugging trip.
    I last towed in the 90s with a Rover 820 Si, having done it for 20 years with various British cars of 1.6 to 2.2 engines, FWD and RWD, with no problems - but back then most caravans weighed less than a ton! No EGR, VSA, DMF, DPF, ABS, ECU or even vat in those days :Smile:

    Things learnt so far are that CJ is a diagnostic God (but hates weasels), there is no such thing as a daft question on here and you always get quality answers, and anything on my car that has a name consisting of three letters is eventually going to empty my bank account :Aghast:

    Hi I-DSI,

    The car has 27k on it now, bought with only 24k in 6+ years so improving all the time as I put the miles on and get it fettled.

    As for pictures - probably beyond my internet knowledge, but may try.
