Thumbs up

first of all you have got to look at the price differance to buy a petrol v Diesel,petrols are harder to sell,hence they are cheaper to buy, diesel bargins are hard to find because any dealer can sell them,also if you drive 6k a year as I do in my private car, buy having a diesel you will save a few hundred a year!also if you buy a petrol you will get a newer car for your money.
Most diesel engines will do 2-300k if well cared for,but the rest of the car will probaly not without major expense! Also petrols are a lot more refined on stop start journeys, as for petrol bargins I have just picked up a 03 03 plate espace 2.0t auto expression with 36k for£7800(yes it has got a ticking hydraulic pump)
