Went to our BMW dealer yesterday. Going to buy a used BMW E91 318d Touring (2010 facelift) in august. Just need to save up for the "deposit"? and then I'm good. The E36 is getting too expensive in fuel cost and I do to many km's. So a nice modern diesel will be nice! Full option. Business navigation, full leather etc etc.
As Sinbad said, 20v (5 cylinder) turbo.
Currently running 300bhp / 280lb/ft torque. More to come in the future, but need a few more mods - FMIC (planned for this summer), uprated fuel pump+injectors, larger exhaust - should take me to 340-350bhp. Suspension upgrades to finish before then though, and some bodywork to tidy up
