    Sorry mate I have to! Unlike some I have to commute to work EVERYDAY which is no good for my pocket!

    Now if you give me a job and allow me to work from home then this problem would be solved! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Cheers

    Rich, just a thought, when I was looking at saving money and getting a derv the ammount I would have to spend on top of the trade in value of my car to get I was willing to have (2.0 GT TDi golf or similar) wasn't worth the saving in petrol costs even over quite a lot of miles.

    Yeah know what you are saying, but I have done the maths and the savings are huuuge!

    Currently I'm paying for the S3 to sit on the drive and look pretty while I fund a runabout to use back and fore to work each day. Its a waste to be honest and I don't particuarly like my runabout either (doesn't do too much for my street cred [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]) so they both have to go and I need to get a sporty diesel compromise.

    For the money i'm looking to get for my S3 I can buy quite a tidy TDI which I would be happy with.

    Cheers
    Rich.

    Thought about this too. But, unlike you , I only do about 13K a year and thats going to come down soon.
    Trying to resist the diesel thing.
    I still like my car too much to swap. Had it nearly 3 years now. Unprcidented in my world.
