I'm in the market for a sedan since I've only have SUV's in my garage. My choices include '02 C240 elegance, '02 C270 CDI avantgarde , '02 Jaguar X-Type 2.0 or Jaguar X-Type 2.5 AWD. Since I will be financing on this purchase, the monthly installments on these vehicles won't be much difference, I only need to put more for the down payment, the most expensive here is the C270. Unfortunately the '03 C class won't be here until January, and the C270 will be on order basis only for '03 with a 3-4 mo waiting period. FYI the C270 has about 400lb/ft which is available at 1800rpm, great for in town traffic. Top speed won't be important to me, since traffic here is pretty bad. I've never driven the X-type but I heard many good things about it expecially the 2.5 with the AWD. I was looking at the BMW325i but my wife said no, and she's keen on the X-type. Thanks for any comments or suggestions.
