I've got the 177ps 320d and having driven the older version find the newer engine smoother. Economy is fantastic - I've only done 500 miles so far, so the engine is still a bit tight, but I got 55mpg on a 40 mile drive to Leeds yesterday. The only (current) downside to the newer engine is the lack of remap options if that is your kind of thing.

The six pot diesels are lovely motors - you just have to consider whether you want to get an older car / worse ecomony (which might be a material hit if you are doing a big annual mileage) but with better refinement and performance.
