Re: BMW 520d M Sport

Jaysus!! :lol:
Hopefully the new engine in the LCI models would be more reliable.........a lot of UK ones about with high enough "motorway miles" but then full service history's too so it's a tough one to gauge

BMW 520d M Sport

Lads and ladies, looking at getting an 2008 BMW 520d M sport and wondering if anyone here has any personal experience of them? Owned one or know someone that does?

Re: Info on Mercedes

Strangely enough though, the parts aren't any more expensive than the tez from what i've seen by just checking on sites for the standard ball joints, arms, discs, pads, drop links etc. Fecking tough decision, really liking the CLK's. Definitely not eager for a BMW, sis has one, with the E46 engine, ...
