I am new to this site ( about 8 mins ) so please break me in gently. I am currently on the look out for a 320d M Sport around 2007 with circa 50-60k on the clock. I have found one which I am going to view tomorrow but before I do make any decisions I was hoping for any tips , hints or general bits of advice on things to look out for. Please be aware I am not in any way shape or form good with technical things lol. Also, could anyone advise wether or not buying from a BMW Used Approved centre is worth the benefits you get with it???? In my eyes it is but if somebody has any past experience with Used Approved it would be great to hear. I known I am going to pay a fair bit more for the car ( prob £12-1500 more ) because it will be from a dealer but when spending this amount of money on a car I would like to spend the extra to comfort my own mind a little more.
I have heard of issues with fragile alloy wheels and also I have read a lot about DPF which is a slight concern. The car I am going to see tomorrow is a 57 plate with 56k on it.
I am also led to believe in general the 320d is a very good car, any opinion on that also welcome.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
