After my initial fact finding a couple of months ago we are now in a position to buy.
I'm still smitten by the 1.6tdci Zetec (around 07,08,09 plates), but there seems to be a real shortage of low/average mileage models. Everything available seems to have 15k-20k/year already on the clock.
There does seem to be a few more 1.8tdci's around with decent mileage, but for only a small bhp increase(Vs the 1.6 110 model) against lower mpg and higher tax i'm not sure its a compromise I want to take.
A quick calculation suggests fuel & tax could be near £20/month more expensive on the 1.8.
