Hi, i have a 2012 318d which is a very nice car and my first bmw. However, i wish to buy another, allbeit older. I have looked at a couple of 2000 523i's as i am after the smooth 6 pot.
My question is this, do the older cars drive a lot more sluggish? I ask this as the 2 i have driven were so slow it was embarrassing.. I had my foot planted and they just did not pick up.
I realise that the diesel is going to very torquey but they even felt worse than my 2ltr petrol vectra.
Is this how they drive? They were autos by the way. It was almost as if they were in too higher gear..
Any come back is welcome.
