New to this.. apologies think i posted in wrong forum.
We are just about to embark on the first purchase of a BMW 318D TOURING 2012, I believe model is E90?! 58k Miles on the clock. (immaculate service history)
I have read some horror stories about the cost of replacing the DPF and wondered if anybody who owned a diesel BMW with a DPF could offer some advice. Is there any way that i can know if the DPF will need replacing (or soon) before i buy the car? Are they commonly replaced or just cleaned? And i guess in simple terms should i be worried about buying a diesel with 58k on the clock for fear of the DPF needing replacing.
I have also read some contrasting reviews that say they are not particularly a problem but wanted to seek some expert advice from BMW owners!
Any help greatly appreciated!
