I am new to this so this may seem like a really silly question (!)... I am thinking of buying a new 320D but am not sure of whether to go for a 320D, 320D ES or 320D SE... I realise that these have different levels of equipment but looking through the descriptions it isn't all that clear. I'm a bit confused by the basic 320D model (it's more expensive than the ES).

I read a review somewhere saying that the ES was the best buy... However I have also seen contradictory advice out there...

Also what is the key difference between climate control and air con. Is climate control definately worth having? It seems like a lot of extra money...

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Hi GuiBoyer check out link http://www.whatcar.com/News_SpecialReport....4&EL_ID=3052496 the 320es won What Car 'Compact executive for 2004'

As to your question on 'air con', the diffrence is that with 'air con' its on or off, you cannot adjust the settings as with climate control where you can choose the temp you want!
