New member here - advice needed
Hey everyone!
First of all, I just want to say that this is an amazing forum. Tons of information, and has truly put my mind at ease with buying an "old" vehicle. The support and knowledge makes you trust that a MP isn't a deal breaker if the car is taken care of!

I have always bought cars under MP, and have now decided to get a car that I can confidently run without MP in a years time.

Currently driving a Merc C200 C-Edition, but recently bought my wife a F48 X1 20d and I am sold on the BMW engines. The efficiency and power is incredible!

I am looking at a 2013 F30 330d with roughly 70k km, M sport, xenon.
Was considering a 335i but I am going to be travelling 2500km a month, so valued the fuel consumption more than pure driving pleasure.

What I need some advice on is deciding between 2 330d's. Year and mileage are similar, but the one I am leaning towards is R30k cheaper. It is cheaper for the following reasons:
1. 18" 400M vs 19" 403M (doesn't bother me much, and 18" tyres are cheaper)
2. Regular auto vs Sports auto
3. Navigation Business vs Professional

Do you think the extra R30k is worth the differences above?
Or should I save that R30k for some after market toys Rollsmile

The sport auto alone is worth it, coupled with professional navigation and the 19" it's actually a much better deal for just 30k more. The resale will be much much better too. Great cars.

Those aftermarket toys could be the Professional Nav, Wheels & Upgrading the Normal Auto Box (by flashing it and so on...)
