Just picked up my new (to me) 12 plate 320D tourer exclusive after my faithful civic got killed in a smash last week.
Have to say I'm really impressed with the drive of the BMW and haven't stopped grinning yet!
Not sure I can live with the head unit though so might have to take some advice...

Very sadly I am having to admit defeat with keeping my beloved Aspen Silver 540i 6sp manual on the road, mainly as cost to repair rust for me makes it no longer worthwhile (MOT failed as rust is near rear seatbelt anchors OSR inner & NSR inner and would cost me too much to pay someone to weld it...

Might sound daft but i bought a Yuasa battery for my 30d x5 just over 2 years ago.
Turned out it wasn't needed so it has been sat on the bench in my shed connected to a ctek mxs 5.0 charger ever since.
Does anybody think this battery will still be any good as i need one for my e90 2.0d.
