The BMW 320d is pricey and so is the Lexus 1S220D. The BMW 320d would be more refined drive but its the economy that is the key as well as the storage of an estate. The Lexus is too new I think and over €30,000 at least. Does anyone have any experience of this model Honda?

Feedback greatfully accepted.

Cheers

Shammy


you could'nt leave her alone ya dirty fecker....

seriously though definitly go to the UK if your after a second hand diesel with the new VRT you'll be saving yourself thousands...

as for which one to definitly the IS220D, it's got the most efficent engine out of the three and it looks the business as well...

So I have the Accord nearly a week now and I am absolutely thrilled with it. Extremely comfortable car and the diesel is really economical and very very fast on both acceleration and top speed. I would honestly recommend it to anyone looking for a sporty saloon for a good price that's economical. It honestly ticks all the boxes!

To be honest it's really really good. I drove an SLine Audi a few weeks ago and drove a red I Passat the last day and the difference is unreal. Turbo kicks in just in the right place in all the gears and to be honest the acceleration off it is frightening. I am in love with it to be honest. Really comfortable car as well - alot more so than the two above. I would highly recommend it! And quite economical for a 2.2 as well!

Between vrt and the car it in total cost me close to €14,000, but the same car over here with similar milage and spec is fetching €20,000. A few weeks on now and I am still delighted. It's a comfortable, solid yet quite nippy car and considering that I got a 05 for that money I think it was a good buy.
