    Forget that 3 series... endless swirl flap problems. And if 1 flap breaks it will be more than just an inlet manifold like it would be on the 1.9150

    If you get one make sure its got plenty of warranty with it Ive had 2 320d
    they are quick and fun to drive,

    I had an 04 320d sport 2 year old dealers had it more than me... it broke down one saturday night took it to dealers sunday morning and left it for them to look at it.......Rang them Monday dinner

    Me "Hi have you had a chance to look at my car"

    dealers "Yes we have found the fault and ordered the new part will be ready for you wednesday afternoon"

    Me "o good see you wednesday... by the way what was the problem"

    dealers "it needs a new engine"

    The butterfly valve had come loose and dropped into the engine apparanty a common fault

    Then got a 320d Se (out of warranty) and the cold start sensor went there are 2 types 1 in the pump and one under the pump mine was in the pump and was going to cost around £800 to fix


    I wont touch another

    Vehicle : Vectra C Hatch

    Trim : Exclusive Plus Pack

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi Z19DTH

    Year : 57

    Mileage : 100k+

    Default

    I think you'd find it smaller inside, the pedals feel offset, and I know I would miss not having a hatchback.
