What model is this Ben, as i’m currently looking at a 335d Touring Shadow Line as our next purchase.

Going from a petrol 240i to A ‘dirty iesel’ is kind of struggle due to the sweet sound of the 6 pot petrol engine.

Although the torque of the 335d and it’s spec is kind of drawing me in little by little.

It’s a either a 335d or a S4 Avant although i’m struggling for a low mileage S4 with decent spec at the moment for my 35k budget.

If it’s the 335d, how are you finding it?

Why not get a 340i Shadow Touring? Don't get a Diesel... So un-enjoyable to drive!

Disagree, the 335d is a hoot. Quicker to 60 than the 340i, 130 lbs/ft more torque over the 340i (which is more than half as much torque again). It just pulls and pulls.

The 335d i’m Looking at is new, very very well specced and it’s only 34k

I can’t pick up a 340i for the same spec and price.

We are now also looking at a Merc GLC43, over budget though in the wife’s eyes!!

BMW E46 AC Schnitzer C30 Touring

Crikey taken me about an hour to figure out how to upload pictures - hopefully this works.

Had an E36 M3 which was cleaned more than I drove it - then our first child arrived and I had to get rid for something more family orientated.

Currently have an E90 330I as a daily and this a weekend project/fun car.

Needs some love - sadly the previous owner didn't look after it like they should have some lacquer peel on the roof from bird sh!t and quite swirly paint - making my way through this slowly with machine polishing and plenty of opportunities to try out all the advise you fine people offer as a relative newbie.

E90 330i

COntinued from above.

Pics of the Daily Drive - E90 330i Manual - bought this again unloved on Ebay for a price I could say no too (only had 1 weeks MOT from a Greek bloke who wasn't in the country at the time!). It went through the MOT without issue.

Don't 30k miles in 3 years and only wanted a replacement Vanos solenoid for £80 - hopefully haven't jinxed myself. Cleans up well to be honest although is quite orange peely and I haven't been near this yet with the Machine Polisher - gets regularly cleaned and waxed but does need an amateur paint correction.
