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.
