    Thanks for the warm welcome guys. I'm not really sure what year of E46 i'd be looking at. I reckon i could sell mine for about 5k so my budget would be about that. Are the Bmw diesel engines any good? I've not really had much experience with them.

    BMW Deisels can be good if you do the necessary work to them.Try go for an 04 or later model as they had better turbos and get the swirl flaps removed if the one you get still has them.There is other maintenance required too to keep them running tip-top but thats the same with any deisel really.If you read through the forums you'll get an idea of what to look out for but also bear in mind to not let the forums make you paranoid either.Hope you get what you are looking for and many years of happy motoring ahead
