E90 Diesel xdrive Availability in Europe

To our European friends;
I am looking for a 2007-2010 330d or 335d, x drive, manual transmission. My preference would be a wagon, but a sedan would suffice. Was this configuration available in Europe in Left Hand Drive (EU configuration). My intent is to buy a vehicle and then export it to Canada. I am also looking for recommended dealers/agents who do this type of business.

What issues should I look out for with the Diesel engines in this vintage?

If this configuration is not possible, is anyone familiar with what I would need to transplant a diesel engine and manual transmission into a North American 2007 328xi, 6 speed manual.

Many thanks,
Peter Morrin

330 had xdrive version
but 335d - no,
also there were no 335d with manual gearbox
330 lci after 2009 year has less reliable N57 engine
i would advise you to search 330xd with M57 engine and you'll be fine.

Purchasing a used 330d in Europe

What are the options for purchasing a used vehicle in Europe? I would likely have to deal with a dealer rather than an individual. Is there an equivalent to "autotrader" or kijiji/craigslist to search for used cars? I can read French English, but my German and Polish is weak!
