After four years in a company car I'm having to go private. Over the years Ive been lucky to have had all of the modern diesel saloons including the new C and E. I commute 60 miles per day up and down the A3. I'm now faced with a choice of getting something I haven't been able to pick over the last few years e.g. there is a lovely CLK500 sport on pistonheads or go for a standard car like a 220cdi C saloon sport. I know they are very different cars and the C is obviously more frugal. I reckon the difference in fuel and running costs is about £150pm. But then I would probably smile a bit more with the CLK which you can't put a value on. Any views appreciated....
