I keep coming back to this thread.
I'm another (currently) penniless dreamer as I'm off on a jolly on Thursday, as such I can't really be spending my money on cars until I get back and get Christmas all sorted, but I've got a list of stuff I fancy as a daily smoker and mile muncher, and I'd not really considered one of these, but had been looking at stuff like 407s with the 2.7HDI fitted.
My wants are automatic gearbox, because I spend a lot of time sitting in traffic and going up and down dual carriage ways these days, diesel because I'm not paying to fuel a petrol car with a good enough engine to suit an automatic gearbox, and comfort, as I'm getting older, and as I get older, I want to drive less like a mad man and more arrive un-stressed and feeling fresh.
As such, a German car is probably off the cards, because modern BMW's and VW's ride like absolute arse. Modern Mercs I've heard are a bit of a horror show, so that leaves the French, or a diesel Jaguar.
And all the best of those, seem to have a v6 diesel.
