I think I'd go for as late a 1.9 Dci as you can afford.....
The 1.5 is OK,but I think the 1.9 is definately the better drive.It won't have to be worked as hard as the 1.5,so economy won't be that much different,and the 1.9 has been about for sometime now,so as ST has said,all the early faults have been ironed out.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
