So on Friday night/Saturday morning, Me, the missus and the Twingo embarked on what was supposed to be a 500 mile round trip (Twingo would only be doing 300 of these miles)

Whilst on the round trip we called off in Cheltenham to meet Belly and his lovely White CUP, wheels were exchanged and then we embarked onto the hotel and nearing the Twingo's final destination.

The next day we got up and drove over to see the car which i have wanted since I was about 10! Sadly the first one was an absolute mess, crash damaged along with overspray and parts missing, so I left that one behind and we went on a drive ringing around all the local ones until we found this beauty!!!



It's a 54 plate BMW 320cd M Sport, with saffron leather interior and Harmon/Kardon sound system, i managed to do 200 miles to 25 on the way home so a HUGE improvement over the Twingo!

It does have a few imperfections but they will be sorted soon!

Plans are coilovers, wheels, exhaust tip (to get rid of the horrible downward tip), EGR, DPF, Swirl flaps and then finally a remap, there are other bits that i want to do but time will tell!

BMW diesels are by far the best!! Does it have Internet forum approved mileage, or real world 100k plus miles?

Love these E46's. Mate has a 325i Msport auto and its such an awesome car to drive.

Don't think i would be happy with a 320cd though, knowing that a 330cd was available and how quick they are.

Wanted a 330cd but insurance wanted 250 more than the 320cd and 50mpg is a massive improvement over the Twingo

No DPF on E46..

Nic, that was worth a lot more, even with ~200k miles...

It's a 4 door not a coupe mine. 150k miles, drives like a 15k mile car.
