    Which 1 would be the better one to go for? and any thing i need to look out for when buying?

    Welcome to the club.

    Firstly in these economic times, i would always advise people to go for the smaller engines, but if you can afford the 2.0 then go for it !

    Ive not had a good look into the diesels so someone else might have to point you in the right direction.

    The only tips i can give are to use your common sense when buying a car and give it a good look over, if its a turbo start it up from cold and take it for a drive and have a good listen.
