The Itch to Change

Hi All

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
an itch to move to a diesel model, though am not convinced
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
going for in place of my petrol car. Fuel economy is one factor.
But what about performance and reliability? Anyone changed from petrol
to diesel and have an opinions either way?

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