Do you drive a lot of miles every day? Factoring in the higher fuel cost for diesel and probably higher purchase price (compared to a gas model), an extra 10 mpg might not make much of a difference in terms of total cost of ownership. I know if I were 16 again I'd probably go for the BMW over the VW diesel...

Thank you very much, only 1500 made for the US!

As far as miles, it varies of curse. In a week, i plan on putting on probably 100+ miles from work, school, and estate sales,etc.
