i dont even wanna know how much it was

australian prices are fucked up

the original owner paid AUD115,000 for it back in july 2008

i bought it for around the same price as a 2003 BMW M3

so you can probably use that as a guide rather than me giving you an exact figure which will be irrelevant to you since US and AUS prices are completely different

euro cars are crazy in price

but other cars are still high? domestics are cheap. but still more than what you guys pay. for instance your pontiac GTO which is our monaro. thats around 50k to 60k for one here

brand new s2000 was 75k. brand new camry is around 30k

brand new E92 M3 is around 160k

i wanted a diesel. and im quite pleased with it. fuel prices here are crazy as well. its currently $1.40 for a liter of fuel which equates to $5.30 for a gallon of the standard unleaded. premium is even more than that

I bet that thing is a slug

its got alot of low down torque (340Nm at 1700rpm) so it gets off the line fine. i find it faster than my E46 320Ci and E46 323i

better get a bigger turbo too while you're at it

that little 2L won't have enough power turn the wheels :hsugh:

the 520d has a sports pack option which includes the 18s. my one had the professional package only.

i've driven one with the 18s. i cant tell the difference at all. only thing is, its a much rougher ride on the 18s since the tyres are thinner and they're run flats
