I posted from my phone and it came out wrong. Never realised.

Of course i checked them out. I don't want a huge engine. A 2L diesel is what I would be looking at.

530d is still economical and a far superior machine, think the tax wouldnt be too bad either. What sort of miles you do if you do low mileage then there are a few jobs you need to keep doing to keep the car right, als bmws burn oil, BMW only acknowledge an issue if you burn more than a litre every 800 miles
