Hi Guys,
I am new to this forum and new to BMW.
We are looking at buying a 2007 320d, it is a huge change for us as we have been Holden drivers all our life, mainly HSV.
Currently we own a VZ Senator and as great as she is to drive we are looking for a completely new direction.

We drove the 320D on Saturday and we were impressed with the power of the little 4 cyl TD, nothing like the 6.0 Litre we are driving now, but a supurb overall package.

We can't do anything until we sell the Senator but at least we have the car we want in sight.

Questions -
What is the overall feeling of the 320D, what are the pro's and cons.
Are the BMW services expensive, and how about reliability??

With the run flat tyres are they expensive to replace and do you think they give a harder ride.

We havn't yet looked at the options, i won't be going for the Sports pack, been there done that with the HSV, we are after a nice ride.

I read also about the sound systems, what do you guys recommend.

There is good reading in this forum and i will gain alot of info, in the coming weeks before our purchase.
