Euro-spec Mazda6 SkyActiv-D i-ELOOP?

This is a question for the folks on the eastern side of the Atlantic. Does the Mazda6 SkyActiv-D wagon come with the i-ELOOP system? I'm asking because I am seeing a Jap-Spec 2013 Mazda Atenza SkyActiv-D on sale in Jamaica at a VERY tempting price. I've been waiting to see one of these come on the market for what I can pay and I think I've found one. I'm actually not on-island at the moment so it might slip me by, however. The seller says that all that's amiss (yeah, right) are two front struts and roof paint that needs "a bit of wax and polish or spray if u wish". But a few questions popped into my head: What is the cost of the i-ELOOP alternator and capacitor should...ehem...WHEN...they go bad? I don't think the i-ELOOP alternator on the US-spec Mazda3 will fit the 2.2L diesel, and I don't think the SkyActiv-D CX5 came with i-ELOOP. So that means I am hoping that our Euro friends can shed some light on this.

1. Does the Euro- or UK-spec SA-D cars come with i-ELOOP?
2. If so, what is the cost of the alternator and the capacitor?

Anything else you can tell me would be awesome. My plan is to get rid of the DPF system if and when I do get this (or any other diesel Mazda). Before the emissions police jump out to arrest, try, and sentence me, no such emissions laws exist in Jamaica, so I am free to do whatever I like.

Mine is a UK spec 2.2D SportNAV with i-Eloop and i-stop. The capacitors do not fail very often but if they do they are around £250 used so not a game stopper.

I'm actually changing my saloon for an estate/wagon next.

I'll keep you guys in the loop.
Shame it has sold but there will be others coming up for sure.

Keep us in the i-Eloop!;)

Top. Do you need a diesel though. They're good on fuel but round town not mega.

I'm actually looking at getting the 2L petrol next in estate/wagon flavour.

Looked at this but it has sold.. :(

Let us know how you get on.
Yeah, the 2.0 petrol has a lot less BHP than the 2.2 diesel for some reason and I thought the 2.2 diesel was slow as I came from a 250BHP Saab Aero.

Definitely going to try one before I buy in case it disappoints me. Newer cars are definitely quicker than the old ones were used to.
