You buying a wagon, maaaate join the club.
Ok heres the deal, any wagon from EBII onwards are pretty good in refinement, power and reliability.
Obviously if you go the later it will be a better model.
In performance EBII's were actually quicker in acceleration than ED's as they had the 3.27 diff's in em and opposed to the 3.08.
All Inline 6 engines from EBII onwards were 4.0L.
Here is a list below for a GLi wagon:
EBII 148kw 3.27 final drive
ED 148kw 3.08 final drive
EF-EL 157kw 3.08 final drive (3.23 for manuals:s5 :s5)
