Opinions on buying a diesel in the UK

My 35D lease comes to an end in December. I have the option to buy the car for 25k, it'll be 3 years old on 26k miles. It's been reliable and great fun. The spec is what I selected so it's right for me.

If I keep the car for 2 or 3 years it'll be close to the time when several cities implement clean air zones. I believe this will mean sub Euro 6 diesels will be banned. My 35D is a Euro 5.

I can wait to see if anything significant happens in the November budget but I I'm nervous that buying with 35D could be a risk in terms of future resale.

Any thoughts from the UK contingent?
