Welcome to the forum:D

When choosing a motor think seriously about the power you want. here are soo many threads on this forum that ask about getting more power from their motor's. The best route is to buy an engine that will make you happy:thumbsup

Just go for the 328I mate. Dont mess around coz if you get the smaller engine you will always want more power. I made that mistake and regret it now! Ive been driving a 325i for a week and i am getting 30mpg on the computer just pottering around. It all depends on how you are gonna drive it.

Welcome to the forum sk8boy73, good luck with your search, I would also go with the engine size that you can most afford regarding fuel e.t.c, so if the budget is good then go for a 328i as you won't be hankering for a bigger engine straight away

If you can afford the insurance and possibly higher running costs, then a 325i/328i is the only way (IMO).

Fuel wise, these big 6cyl BMW engines are very impressive, much more economical than you'd believe, but once problems start to set in etc, this can take a toll for the worst. You need to make sure that the usual stuff like engine sensors, coils, 02 sensors are all in good health. You need to ensure that vaccum lines/hoses are not perished and that the engine is correctly serviced and you'll be smiling.

I would always personally avoid any car thats been 'messed' about with.
