    Go and view the car yourself and have a look.

    Ask him if its a 3.2 engine or a 3.0 engine (its on the V5). if its 3000cc its a V6 if its 3200cc is an I6.

    Is it a 5 spd or 7spd gear box. The older I6 didn't have 7 speed gear box IIRC.

    The older I6 car is more economical, not much less powerful but the 3.0 is a fair bit greedier but allegedly much more refined/smooth.

    This and that.
    Key the VIN number into the Russian VIN 'checker' website listed in the Favourites section of this forum.

    What does the chassis number start with?

    211026 (226 for estate) is a I6 - 613 engine
    211022 (222 for estate) is a V6 - 642 engine
