Very difficult to argue with a veto from "er indoors" ;D

Women can be weird and wonderful creatures,  with too often no discernable logic to their decisions.....

Mazda diesels have an apalling reliability record..

Agree, they're not the best.

I don't want to sound too pessimistic Jocko by my Ford TDCI lasted 115k

Let me guess, 1.6 TDCI? That is a disaster from Peugeot, most of the problems stem from injector leaks... which burns the engine oil, blocks the oil strainer, kills the turbo, and then the crank often starts knocking shortly after. The 1.4 TDCI in the Fiesta, etc., wasn't a lot better.

BMW & Mini also use the Peugeot diesels in some models, not sure what engine the one Jocko was looking at has in it. Given the good mpg, I wouldn't be surprised if it was the Peugeot.

Tyres don't really worry me, as I am not hard on tyres, nor am I particularly worried about the longevity of a diesel engine. I know you get occasional major failures (my son-in-law had a crankshaft snap in his works Discovery. He couldn't believe it, and it cost his company several thousand pounds to put right), but in my experience, petrol engines fail more often than diesels. But all this looks immaterial, as my wife is adamant that she doesn't want us to buy a diesel (she doesn't even drive), and explaining to her that if I don't buy it someone else will isn't cutting much ice!

I don't want to sound too pessimistic Jocko by my Ford TDCI lasted 115k and my daughters BMW tyres are twice the price as my Jazz tyres and last half the distance, it does have 18" very low profile run flats.

Saying that, the BM you've been offered sounds really nice and in your circumstances I think you should go for it if your wife is happy with it as well.

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - 2020 / Re: Wheels again... why so confusing?
« Last post by JazzyJ on December 13, 2019, 02:23:55 PM »
An update. This morning I bought a single Honda 16" OEM alloy (as currently fitted to my car) from Cox Motors for 169.99. I also ordered 4 VREDESTEIN QUATRAC 5 tyres at 84 each with a local garage happy to fit for 10 a corner. My plan is to use one of the wheels/tyres currently fitted to my car as a spare (Cox Motors ensures me it will fit in the boot) with the new rim and three other current wheels being fitted with the VREDESTEIN QUATRAC 5's. With this combo I should have 4 new all season tyres to drive on and a full size spare with DUNLOP summer tyre ready to go in the boot. Thanks for all your advice, it really helped with my decision, a great forum!

I drove diesel vans, during my white van man days, and both fleets were extremely reliable (Citroen and FIAT for the main part). I spoke to my son-in-law last night, and they run their diesel vans (VW, Ford and Mercedes) for 250,000 miles with nothing other than routine servicing. He has no qualms about the BMW 2 litre diesel, since he works on diesel vehicles every day of his working life, seldom having to do anything to the engines.
