Congratulations Greg on your order.
I'd like to know more about your decision to go for the gas burner vs waiting on the diesel? If you could wait would you have waited?
I'm trying to justify my decision to wait for it vs ordering now as you have. I have a feeling the diesel is going to be sooner than we expect especially since MB just announced it for the C class.
I've never owned a diesel but would consider one. I do want good on road performance, and while the 320CDI has great torque, acceleration is still poorer that the 350. I have been wanting to replace the '98 by early summer--if the CDI was available at launch I would have given it serious consideration. The fact the the 350 is the new 4-valve engine that produces more power, yet has improved mileage, is a selling point for me.
