    Hi

    After a rush of blood to the head and advice from this site and others, I part exed my Mazda 6 nice chassis great kit but really naff engine, for a 530d m sport auto '08.

    Started out after a 520d with high spec but the spec on the 530d next to it was perfect full nav, leather and media package etc .
    Was waiting for that spec but in the smaller engine.
    they dropped the price on teh 530....
    I'd also convinced myself I would chip the the 520 at a cost of £455 they only wanted £500 more for the 530d with 93k on instead of the 70k on the 520d.

    So here I am.

    Pick it up on Friday

    Will do.

    but for now heres the dealers page.
    Autoinfusion - Autoinfusion

    One question I have is what oil do folks recommend for the '08 530d.
    The BMW branded oil at £££ or an after market product.
    I always like to keep a litre in the car.

    Great thanks for that will pick some up that they suggest.

    next questions is about the auto /semiauto box.
    First time I have owned one. Am slightly nervous this is overly complicated piece of engineering is fraught with possible problems I have no evidence for this just that to me it must be more complex than a manual and therefore may break easier?
    Is there anything I should do to ensure good longevity from this. I hope to keep this car for 150k miles.....
