About to change car.
Hi all been i have been looking changing car for sometime now, after changing jobs i now require a diesel. I was looking at few cars like a mazda6, but they would be push me to breaking point fiancé wise. So i have changed my plan and going to go for a S40. Been to look at 2 today and thinking about it tonight. Both appear to be good cars, same colour, can’t fault either of them but can’t decide which one to go for.
car 1) Is a 56 plate 2.0D SE Sport with 50k on the clock, with the alloy upgrade and with the 6 speaker cd changer high performance audio system. Full leather, electric seats, auto everything including bending lights. @ £5500 from my local Volvo dealer with 12 month warranty.
car2) is a 58 plate 2.0D SE R-design with 65K on the clock, with all the normal R-design features. But lacks the sound system, electric seats etc. But looks that much more meaner! @ £7000 from a local dealer again offering 12 months warranty.
I know what my head is telling me, but my heart is saying the opposite. Anyway just wanted to get some like minded people opinions? As far as i am aware they both the same car just with a different bodykit and a few other trim bits. Does the R-design really warrant that much value over the sport? As i prefer the looks of the R-design, but my head can’t just justify that each money for the age and mileage? Plus the final hurdle its a Volvo!
