Ordered a new runabout which at the most will be doing 10 mile journeys each run.

I fancy the petrol car myself but I've got at least 6 months to think about it.

Any plus or minus opinions on either? Smile

I've ordered the Petrol version over the diesel mainly because we don't do that many miles, it sounds better and the performance is better.
However, that just suits us and the diesel is also great (as I had on a 48hr test drive).

Also, I gather that..
- the diesel engine is an Audi engine but the Petrol is a Porsche one
- if you order a Macan diesel I don't think you can switch part way through the waiting period to a petrol (but maybe depends on the dealer)
- diesel waiting lists are more like 6-9mths but petrol nearer 12mths

We were told there were three distinct waiting lists: petrol, diesel and turbo. A bit annoying really! Similar with Boxtser, not sure about the 911.
