Let me worry about the cost. Or not. ;-)

Cheers for the feedback. Was more tempted by the 2 litre!

Drove my first DSG box in a Seat Ateca. Very impressed.

Isn't the XF Sportbrake only available with the derv engine-and only the small one at that?

No, plenty of options, plenty of power.  trouble is I prefer the latest facelift, which means 1 year old max in a sportbrake....far too expensive :(

Still going roundin circles!

Trying to decide if I really need an estate, or whether Hatch / Saloon will do.  It does open up a lot more choice & value
Superb & XF are still up there, the XF in particular is a far better proposition if I don't go for an estate as their design is 2-3 years behind the saloon, and part of that makes it very hard to find the right one that would tick my boxes.

Are you looking for the derv version or proper car fuel?

There are a lot of derv XF's to choose from.

Dont really mind, as long as it can get over 40 mpg

quickest way ive ever found is to dose the nest with wd40, as its oil based they hate it,hover around for a few hours trying to get back in then off to the next place :y

Hmmm maybe its Wasp Deterrent 40, not Water Dispercement 40 ;D ;D ;D

Cheers, not set on anything yet to be honest, still reading and looking, but not a lot else is catching my eye bar Superb and Xf
forewarned is forarmed etc so digging before I turn something down with the wrong box.
I suspect some sort of auto is the best way to go for various reasons, although that does go against the grain somewhat.

Are 3 year old and newer cars with DSG's likely to be ok now?
Assuming serviced and oil changed as required.

I know the older ones had a range of problems.

Auris is a bit small, Not been in an E Class yet,
Still liking Superb
Still liking Jag
Like the fact the Superb is a lot lower miles and nearly new over the jag, but like the jag over the superb, cos its a jag, and the right wheels go round

Not actually keen on the CLS
Volvo's fit the bill from the outside, but dont like them inside, console digs into my legs.
