    over the last 20 years of driving ,ive had all makes of car except a bmw ,something just keeps saying buy one . im nearly 40 and have 3 kids ,but still love modifiying cars remapping etc.

    im looking to purchase a bmw diesel ,got to be diesel and 99% got to be manual .roughly 10k to spend but could push a little further (without telling missus)

    a few factors involved including leg room in rear for kids , must have satnav ,no point in getting a lower spec car as it always always cost you more to upgrade the electronics .

    power wise what can you do with them and which model would you start out with ?

    have looked at the 335 diesel but they all seem to be auto , didnt they make a manual version ?

    my last modded diesel was an audi a3 tdi 2.0 140 , fitted with a hybrid turbo and remapped to 231 bhp made a few shocked faces .


    so it has to be quick , i know alot of people say buy petrol . but i like my diesels


    anyway thanks for listening hopefully il get some good advice

    You should be able to get a nice E60 530d for that money, make sure it has a good service history though preferably with a private owner who didn't run it 19k between oil changes. There is a direct correlation between regular oil services and turbo life
