Really, I will have a look.
Problem for me is I would want nav, would want smart phone integration, would want leather, would want auto, would want xenons and would not own another BMW without the Harman Kardon upgrade.
That puts a 320d modern/sport/efficient dynamics saloon at £39,000, so over £40,000 for the touring when it arrives.
Say £36,000 after discount?
I just can't get my head round paying that sort of money for a 320d.
You can buy a 6 month old 530d sport touring for that, you can buy a 12 month old 730d for that.
Same with the X3, I was considering one of those, but it was £45,000 with not a great spec. £51,000 with the things I wanted.
X1 at £20k a year old made far more sense.
