I have a 1.6 5 door Turismo, petrol, registered May 02. I have
done 36K miles and still have 6 months to pay
. I have

the fuel savings on 12K miles per year will be that great.
Oh what to do! I have seen a couple of 5 door diesel at my local
dealer only 9 months old, at quite a bit less than list price. Both
are the 115 BHP model. They also have a 3 door 16V diesel
but that is more £££ of course.
Then there is the buy a new diesel for the price of petrol offer.
Add into that mix that the models are being revised next year.
I really need some feelers for whether the 115BHP diesel is worth

Of course I may book a test drive but then may be tempted to
