So my vote is for the M320D or M330D.
lol, that is pretty much what i thought,
however here in NZ, you also have to pay what is called RUC (road User Charges) around $700NZ per 10000miles. Than for owning a Diesel your yearly road registration is almost twice that of a petrol car.
It probably would have helped if i added this in the first, lol.
But thanks for the replies thus far.
