    Will you get a decent 320D F30 with a budget of R 200 000? At what entry price would you look to get a decent 320d that will last about 10 years?

    Suggest a car for under R200k

    I'd say it's looking for trouble buying a hot hatch of about 5 years with around 100 000 km's on the clock. Rather buy a newer car with less mileage.

    Best time to sell your car?

    A friend of mine sells his cars when the annual maintenance is more than the annual down payment of a new car. Might not get a lot of money when he sells tho. Read somewhere that most cars won't depreciate to a value of less than 50% of it's value when it's 5 years old.
