Almost bought a 135 but the various issues put me off. Is there a point, besides mileage, where the injector, intake fouling and turbo issues are not that big a problem?
This is why I'm considering the n52 / 330i.
Less issues, however in my short research n52 engine still has its issues...

Strictly not 320d fan boy content , but it is 2L diesel

That time came, the 520d got traded in ( motor plan had about 15000km left) ,got an x1 paying bit less a month, and it’s my first new , 0 km car

Got a Smurf now

Congrats on the “downgrade”, what spec/options is it rocking?

Did they include a smoke screen during the reveal?

I feel a bit the same, but the whole falling into a low car, vs getting into a higher car was the seller for me, after a p***ed off a motor bike a few years ago, my knee has been very iffy, and the lower car wasn’t helping

Currently driving around in the SO's X3 F25 2.0d which is an awesome all rounder and its feels much better getting into a "higher" car, BUT its slow as hell coming from the 3L

AHH Now that's what i call service. Why weren't we invited?

I really didn’t expect it to be honest , and it really does annoy, it’s like a whole 30-40 minutes of the “big reveal” and taking you through everything the car does, even though it’s much of the same as the vehicle I’ve driven for the last 2 or 3 years

It’s the full house , heads up, panoramic glass roof, bla bla bla , it’s a bit narrower than the 520d, but essentially the same vehicle
Ugh don't use words like "full house", we are not in 2003 anymore.:cool::p

The M40d will be faster, problem solved.
