    To tell the truth I'm not yet a beemer owner but Im very close!

    Ive been a skoda owner, yes a skoda owner for about 4 years and now im looking towards buying a new shape 3 series or 5 series diesel.

    The E numbers thing is a little confusing is it E60??? so thats all new to me.

    I'm reallly here to see your views before I invest 15K to 20K on a car.

    Ive never driven one yet but Im trying to decide whether I can cope with the big size and comfort of the 5 series or the smaller 3 series. I have a wife but no kids yet - Ideally I'd have a hatch for practicality - but I think a tourer is the best way to go as a saloon is no good for cookers and mountain bikes etc!. I'd like damn good performance at least as good as the skoda VRS diesel (my other choice of car) if any of you know it and just looking for some good advice!

    Cheers

    Hi and welcome

    You will get a lot for 15 - 20k...like any car its hard to call it an investment as its value will only go one way.

    You may want to look at a 330d or 530d to start with.

    If your concerned with size then you will have to go with the 5 series as a 3 series doesnt offer too much room if there are anymore than 2 people in the car.

    Get down to your nearest dealer and go for a test drive or two

    well if u have got 15-£20k to spend and your looking for something fast and worth getting there are plenty of E46 m3's on auto trader website saw a nice one on there in titan silber with personal plate for £11,700 but there are allot of others on there too.
    + your interested in transporting bikes and such arround have seen M3's with bike racks on top of there roof ect

    BMW E46 330D touring is what you need mate
    You can get a really modern one with that budget....and maybe have a little left over for some diesel

    It will ravage the VRS straightline and maybe even round the bends...a truly superb car.
    Or a 330D saloon/coupe (and a towbar+trailer for the cooker!)
