really depends on what you want. we cant get the diesels stateside, so i've`never driven one. a 2.5 L diesel could be fun with torque, and 120k for either engine is nothing. but if you want performance, gas is a blast. Also, the diesels smoke, especially under full throttle. sounds like the diesel is in better shape tho. if you want fancy, save up a little more and get a better condition gas. i found i needed to be patient until ythe right one came along. have someone check it out before you buy. i did'nt and payed $$$
