    Hi

    I'm based just outside Cardiff in South Wales. Am 52 and have finally decided it is time to sell my motorbike (have ridden one since I was 15 with no real breaks) as I don't seem to enjoy it like I once did and am a bit of a mountain bike freak these days.

    Anyway I'm thinking along the lines of buying a 3 series (or possibly 5 series) estate, but from there it all seems so confusing with so many options and models and they all seem so different so I'm hoping to glean some knowledge and information by reading these forums!

    Things to look for, which is the best model to buy, Should I buy an older model or a newer model etc etc the possibilities are endless and the choices confusing right now!

    Hope to interact more and perhaps even be able to help someone sometime in the future with whatever I find along the way!

    Thanks

    Bob

    Hi welcome to the forum. As you have probably realised the 3 series starts with a 3 !!, but the next numbers are only a guide to engine size, 318ci se... 2 litre coupe, petrol, SE better spec than ES. AND you can fit a mountain bike in the back of a coupe... the rear seats fold down !!

    I assume the boot of a coupe would be the same as a 4 door? so mountain bike would fit in either?

    May be going to look at a 2005 520d SE 4 door tomorrow, high mileage and 5k.

    I know I want a diesel (I think!!) I also think I may prefer an estate (have a dog too) , but 4 door car would suffice

    I think most coupes, if not all, had folding rear seats. But on 4 door saloons, I think it was a rarely taken up option
