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
