    thoughts please

    As some are aware i want to change my car, i wouldn't mind a VXR, but my attention has been drawn to a diesel, whats your opinions on them, are they worth it?

    What's the pro's and cons?

    > 20000 miles a year = get a diesel
    < 20000 miles a year get a VXR

    I have seen a T8 for sale just under 14k which seems a bargain. I do roughly just over 14k miles a year.

    I like either the T8 or VXR

    anyways thanks Steve.
