Sorry for butting in but gotta disagree with that one. I'll apologise now for being stereotypical but when I see BMW drivers it spings into my mind that they're the cut you up d***head, never indicate and think they own the road. Fair enough you have a nice car, doesn't justify you to be a ****. Also apart from the badge, I don't see how a 318d is any better or special than lets say a Passat CC, Vauxhall Vectra/Insignia VXR, Ford Mondeo Titanium X or a Honda Accord Type S. All within the price range for the poster, very nicely built and is fairly fast whilst probably cheaper to maintain, as I heard BMW parts and service checks are VERY expensive. <-Correct me if I'm wrong.

By no means, but it depends what your priorities are and for this poster, I think it is yes. Me and my mates have had a few, and i've had 3 E46 M3's (which are VERY special) and whilst the 318d is nowhere near as good as a porsche 911, Z4, Type R etc . . it is miles better than 1.3 corsa, ford mondeo, accord, VW Bluemotion etc which is being suggested as the competition. What would your suggestion be?
I can just see my post being negged, I know they're BMW drivers out there that aren't like that. But its the majority that give a bad name which deters me from getting one myself (much rather have a Jag ). I agree that the its better than a corsa or bluemotion but they're still some other decent stuff out there. Just cos its an Accord or Mondeo doesn't mean its crap is all I'm saying.
