    What diesel car?

    My next car is going to be a diesel.

    Recommend me some cars that are nice looking, medium size and cheap to tax etc and run.

    Open to any suggestions.

    Or were you thinking a bit bigger?

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    I've been looking at the 130 variant of the MK4 Golf GT TDI to be the Astra's replacement, whenever that comes.

    On the whole i've only really read positive things about them, but i'm sure there's some nasty reviews about also

    The Leon looks about the right size but Laura doesnt like it.

    I was looking at maybe the Passat, Audi A4 or maybe a some sort of Skoda

    my mates got a passat, its a 2.5 v6 tdi, it realy nice to drive and rele comftable, even with 19" bentley wheels! loads of room and you get all the extras! his has done 160,000 miles and is still going strong! some do look a little boring though, would say any mk4 golf tdi would be a nice car, seat leon, you might be able to pick up a mk5 astra for that moneys, the vw bora is a nice car dont see many of them about and look much nicer than the passat!
