I placed my order for a 1.8 quattro petrol a few months ago as I thought diesels were a bit boring and not as 'explosive' as petrol cars. The past week I drove a diesel and was quite impressed by its torque and fuel economy. I checked the prices and the difference between the 2.0 TDI and 1.8 TFSI is roughly 1000 but the diesel has more power, torque and a higher mpg figure. Should I order a 2.0 TDI quattro instead? It's not too late to change my order. Would I also get a higher resale value if I went for diesel?
P.S I won't commuting in the car it will just be driven on weekends and taken on road trips to Europe in long holidays. Fun factor is the priority really.
Thanks in advance and happy holidays.
