Good morning team,
Looking at moving on our powerful and noble steed, the E46 318i sedan. We're really keen on sticking with BMWs, but switching up to a touring.
So far, the E61 & E91 have caught our eye and are in our price range. What I can't figure out is why the E91 seems to be more expensive? E61 seems to be a lot of car for the money. Apparently a 200kg difference which sounds hefty (based of N52B25 as example).
My buying checklist:
Car will be used as the main car. Used for weekly commutes with odd weekend road trips. Usually carry the two of us, sometimes some friends. After the boot space to haul car parts/weber/tent etc.
Engine: 6 cylinder. More familiar with the M5x series. Clueless about the N5x. Diesel would be nice but the price goes up. Most likely go for b25. Would like better optioned versions motorsport/highline.
Gearbox: no preference.
Colour: lighter the better.
Interior: anything but cloth. Preferably dark.
Clueless with the new tech as we own an e30, e36 and e46. Any input on iDrive would be appreciated also.
Look forward to hearing opinions and preferences.
