With all the new ved on Diesel cars not sure how that stacks up any more regards regards running costs.
waiting I was really luck the car I bought was on the showroom floor so only took a week to do the paperwork and checks before presentation so can’t comment on time line sorry
No worries thanks

Jagman 2017/Smitten thanks for your welcomes and advice really appreciate it.

I had never thought about anything more than 2.0 Diesel-powered. I assumed diesel would be the right choice as I do a lot of miles ( at least 125 a week) . How much more is a 2.5 in terms of running costs?

I have a test drive booked for the end of next month. I can't wait. What is the average waiting time from ordering new to collection?
125 miles a week isn't particularly high? 6500 miles a year?

Unless you really do high mileage, the additional fuel cost for a car that does 10 mpg less than a more efficient one isn't that high

For example, 6000 miles. Based on June 16, say an average of 34 mpg for 25T petrol, you would use ~800 litres

A 2.0 D based on my experience, you're looking at an average of 44-45 mpg so it would only use ~ 600 litres diesel a year..

If we say petrol is £1.23/l (well, it was round here last week..) that's an additional £250 a year for those extra 200 litres

Diesel is lovely to handle & needs adblue. Personally, unless your 125 miles are all on the motorway, I'd get a petrol and have some fun!

Mine does about 24-25 mpg per tank, but the extra £500 is well worth it!
Just did a check on Parkers. The road tax on the diesel will be cheaper if I don't go mad on options. I have not had a petrol car for 10 years. I have bad experiences of them.

I’ve just jumped to petrol after 20 odd years with diesel , some good petrol engines out there now, the ingenium petrol seems to be a good one. It’s nice to get back to a car with no diesel clatter.
At the end of the day you’ve got to like what you drive , it’s a very personal thing.
