Hello, help, decision time!

Hi there,
So pleased to have found this forum, some good reads on it.
After lots of research Im about to take the plunge on a nearly new X2 auto sport, grey or silver BUT I just cannot decide between diesel or petrol - any opinions much appreciated....

Ive always had diesels BMWs but only do circa 8000 mile per annum now, couple of shortish motorway journeys a week and the rest short local urban journeys so on that basis I thought I should try a petrol.
Also will the bad press eventually erode a diesel car so much it could really hurt in a few years time?
Possible problems with dpa also if not doing the right motoring for a diesel.

I know that sounds like Ive already made my mind up but Im just finding it hard to make the switch ans worrying the fuel consumption on a petrol might leave me kicking myself.

Thanks in anticipation of someone giving me another angle or confirming my thoughts

Anyone?... would be really helpful if anyone can give their opinion, I get conflicting views from the dealers depending what theyve got in stock to sell. Cheers
