How many miles to make diesel worthwhile?

2078 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  matt_tdv6
I'm stuck on which way to go in purchasing a ZT. I can't see me doing more than 10,000 miles a year, so, in terms of running costs, is it worth paying the premium on the purchase price for a CDTi, or shall I choose the fun option and go for a 190?

There's also a big difference in insurance groups, so it's not all about mpg.

So what comments can people make comparing the overall annual running costs for the two?

CDTi's seem about £1000 more expensive on average so doing less than 10K a year I don't think you will see savings for a long time. I would have the cheaper V6.
What sort of ZT are you looking for?

A diesel,135+ with low mileage and in exceptional condition?

If so PM me
Matt... a low mileage, exceptional CDTi would normally be out of price range, judging by what is available on PH and the trader. However, what have you got?
I have the following:

2004 ZT CDTI+
18" Alloys

Had new Kumho Ecsta's fitted 2500miles ago onto Freshly refurbished alloys

Serviced (Needed the following below)
New Alternator
New Clutch
New Slave Cylinder
New Master Cylinder
EGR Blanked

Is it a facelift? Any photos online somewhere? What price is it up for? PM that if you like.
