    Hi guys, sorry, think I posted my original hello in the worng section as I was also asking a question. Been enjoying flicking through the pages of the forum finding out some stuff.

    My original question was that I currently drive a Fabia VRS and am considering trying to talk my good lady into parting with it and getting BMW.

    I have owned one before briefly, a 92' 320, and loved everything about it. Except its drinking habit

    I would be looking for something around the same value as my Fabia (5k) and with half decent MPG so looked at a 2001 330d.

    My question is, at around 8/9 years old and 100k on the clock, are there things I should be aware of? Do clutches or suspension tend to go around these times?

    Thanks in advance for any replies

    Martin

    Thanks for the welcome, so much information to take in!!!

    Really swaying towards a 330d but bit put off by the possible "costs" at 100k.
