I have a L reg 196K 9000CS that i bought off myfather at 195K when teh engine went. The only problem that he had with it prior to that was that nothing went wrong. According to the guy that fitted the new engine, every one that he has seen fail, has had a non-genuine filter fitted. So my advise is, ensure that you only use genuine ones. By the way, even at 195K it did not burn oil or leak water, the car drove like new. That is why it was worth me getting the new engine.
