    Now that's a strange one, our van is registered 07 and every computer thing we put our reg number in says it has the 07 engine , the newer type, EVEN peugots own parts one, but this oil one actually says it's 06 ,first one to say that and it is correct.
    Have a devil of a job getting parts none of the computer parts thing will say it uses a cambelt when you can look and see the damn thing.
    Even if you put the vin number in its the same thing:Doh:

    You dont say 2006
    Boxer 11
    OR
    Boxer 111
    With or Without DPF they are different and critical
    Will assume UK and greater EU for temp range and usage
    5.3 ltrs or 6.4 ltrs dependant on engine fitted
    And you thought you just needed oil:ROFLMAO:

    We had a Citroen a few years ago now and that was the same. Everyone said it was between years? How the hell can it be between years, it's either one or the other. :D

    Fully synthetic 5-40 made a terrific difference in my 2005 2.2HDI Citroen last year.

    later engines with DPF should very importantly have low as oil. Sometimes called low SAPS...
