Never owned a BMW before but as I've just turned 40 I think it's about time to ditch my Impreza STi which I've owned for almost 8 years and taken from 300 Bhp to over 420Bhp & 400 FtLbs Torque. Fed up with 20 Mpg and the inclination I have to tinker with the setup. It's currently for sale and considering a 535D M Sport as It's replacement.
Big question is this my daily commute is only 10 miles each way. 8 miles of which is on fast B roads and the other 2 in town.
Will that be enough for the car to fully warm up enough and for me to see the benifit of a diesel over a petrol? I'm not worried about the cost of diesel in comparison to petrol as I currently have to use either Shell V Power or Tesco Momentum in my STi.
