First off, I do not own a BMW and the only BMW that I have ever driven was a 70's 2500 and that was over thirty years ago.
However, I joined the forum because the guy that services our ancient VW suggested that the best car that he could recommend was a BMW 3.0 diesel and that is where my problem starts, I know nothing about BMW's and I cannot afford to make a mistake on my choice of BMW.
In January I retire, and I will finally lose the company car so I am starting to look for a suitable replacement. The budget is certainly not enough to buy anything made in the last few years but I am patient and sure that I can find 'the right one' but some advice on what to avoid and what model is better suited would be gratefully received.
As we have never been fortunate to afford a high-end model (we own a Mk3 Golf) any BMW must be a step up, therefore our only stipulation is that it must be the 3.0 diesel.
Thanks to any and all advice.
