159: Petrol or diesel?
I would appreciate some assistance with a buying decision.
I'm going to change my 156, which I've had for 6 years, for a 159. There are two very good-looking examples and I'm torn between the two of them. One is a 2007 JTDm 16V and the other a 2008 1.8 petrol. Both are fully-serviced and proper spec. (leather, climate control, cruise control etc.). I know the diesel is by far the better engine, but the petrol has 30,000 miles less and is 550 euro cheaper, and will have a warranty. I've done a history check on the diesel (but not yet the petrol) and there are no issues there.
Which would you recommend overall?
Also, I know this is a very generic question, but are there any major things to look out for with either engine?
Once again, I really appreciate any assistance that you may have to give.
