Now the Civic has gone and Im towing the Silvia, I was right on the tow weight limits of my old 330d Touring, so I needed something a bit bigger to tow the bigger car.

Placed a deposit last week, and as soon as the docs come back for my private plate Im chopping the 330 in for this (They offered me what I had in my mind for a private Sale for P/X smile ) ...

BMW 530d M Sport Touring - in a very very rare 6 speed manual wink

Its the facelift 231bhp model with push button start, and the 5 Tourings also have rear air suspension to help with the towing. Fingers crossed I may get it late this week / early next week smile

As with new dervs, they respond very well to a remap, giveing a balance of economy and performance, and these later, higher power cars go from 231bhp and 500Nm Torque, to 280bhp and 600Nm torque omg plus you get the improved economy smile











(These are pics from the for Sale advert - Ill get some better ones and start another topic when I pick it up smile )

The one you had - what was that showing mpg wise...12? raftl

Not sure I could live with that - I test drove this, reset the trip, and even with a few blats, it was still showing very similar to the 3 series - high 40's smile

Also, cheap M5s are still around the £25k mark - and £40k for the Tourings (they wherent made until 07> ) frown

...anyway - my face would hurt from all the grinning everytime the throttle got pressed grin
