Diesel to Petrol - would you?
My 159 SW 1.9 jtdm is still absolutely fantastic. I wanted to keep it until the new 159 replacement (Guila?) is released which I have recently read may be delayed until end of 2014 or beginning 2015 (due to the fact thy are now looking at making it rear wheel drive!). I have had my 159 for over 4 years and it has just passed 74,000 miles so I am a little concerned at keeping i until 2015 by which time it will be close to, or at, 100,000 miles.
Been looking around at the 2nd hand market and have seen a couple of 1.75 TBi's which look attractive. I know very little about the TBi and certainly most of the talk on these forums is about diesels. I know the fuel consumption is greater, but that is partly offset by the cheaper petrol, and I know there are no EGR, DPF issues to concern with. Other than that, I know little about the TBi. So the question is, would this be a worthwhile exchange or would I live to regret it?
Don't listen to what I say, listen to what I mean ..............
