    I really like them too being honest. But as Joe said I haven't heard great about them engines either..
    Not sure if there's a petrol alternative...but that's kinda defeating the purpose too tho....

    I'm only going off what I see ..
    2 lads at work have these 320d's over 3 years
    Bought with bmw history's & no issues

    Like the above post I would have the 330d ( with the f1 style wheel )
    Cheap tax , economy (50+mpg) and give a lot of Subaru's on here a good run for there money !

    I've a e90 320d with the reliable m47 2 litre engine. It's comfy, looks alright in my opinion, good on juice but dead compared to my old scoobie. However it depends what your buying it for, IMO you can't beat a bimmer for comfort. I'd much rather drive the bmw long distance.
    Friend of mine has a 535d, 340hp and a ridiculous amount of torque but still boring.
    If your buying a fun car buy a petrol.
