    You should read the sticky regarding the balance shaft failure.

    I think it affected quite a lot of 2005 models. I was in the same position as you and did some research. I bought a 56 reg.

    My car has the Engine code BRE which I know are ok after loads of reading. You should search the "Balance Shaft Failure" as it would possibly be the most expensive mistake you could make.

    Im not saying all 2005 models are affected but one to watch out for.

    All 2005 engines are likely to have the affected BLB engines which all have the oil balancer defect. £2k to change the defect or far more if/when it goes wrong.
