    I just love the FIRE. The tone of the engine is just superb!

    But I might think twice before going for the T-Jet as I heard from a technical person of Fiat that T-Jet core engine components are going to be different from normal FIRE engine!

    The turbo maintenance costs and spares for future might be difficult for T-Jet.

    I till believe that it's better to go for Linea MJD with 93PS rather than T-Jet because diesel does not pinch the pocket everyday.
    Same safety features and gadgets. Yes, T-Jet will have some more goodies and some mouth watering ones too.

    Friends, wanted some information on behalf of my colleagues. They are contemplating on buying the Linea MJD / T-Jet.

    They are confused, whether to go for a Diesel Variant or Petrol. Their monthly running will be around 1100 to 1200 Kms. One thing i wanted to know is the Cost of ownership, i have few questions on the same, mentioned below:

    1. Is there any difference in the Spare Costs of Petrol & Diesel ?
    2. If the Diesel Spares / running items are costly, does that negate the FE savings / Km benefit ?
    3. In the long run which would be more costlier of the two ?
    4. I hope the resale value of the Diesel is more than the Petrol. AFAIK, the European Petrols depreciate faster compared to others, am i right ?

    Kindly provide your valuable comments.
