Caddy SDI or TDI

Im looking at getting a nearly new Caddy but am unsure of what engine to go for, the TDI is slighly more expensive than the SDI and I dont know weather or not its worth the extra money?

Which engine gives better MPG, also has anyone got any pics of some nice Caddys?

If the SDi Badge means the same as it did on Golfs then go TDi anyday. The SDi is an unturbo'd version, and actually not that great on fuel from experience as you have to thrash them everywhere, far more economical to drive a TDi sensibly and be able to keep up with traffic.
