Would we rather spend the same money on a new 330d or a few months old 530d of same specification, with several thousand miles on it? I know which one I am in favour of.

Personally I have a problem with speccing an F31 328i touring to over 40k, with just a 4-pot engine and without SatNav. Easy to take a 3-series over 45k. You can get a lot of 'year old' 5-series for the same money, 60k+ motors.

My Auc 330d was 10 months old and I got 42% off so totally agree its the best way for value*
*unless you get a 'one off' lease on a new one like I managed to this time around

So are you not looking at another 330d Pete, rather the 328I?
