That table doesn't include a line for fuel.
It should be ok then. Just keep a close eye on it . Hope the driveshaft doesn't cost too much in the end
The Volvo is averaging 19mpg on Super Unleaded, I'm fine with whatever whichever car does on fuel.
With all the spreadsheets just make sure you don't overlook which one gets you the most excited. Obvious comment is obvious etc
The Golf or Skoda will do probs 35mpg, the BMW 20.
So over 8000 miles you’ll be spending another £1000 on the BMW.
Money well spent. Just get the M5 @Dammit. You know it doesn't make sense. But it's what you want really, so JFDI.
I had a front bumper stolen from a Mondeo ST220 about 10 years ago, then 6 months later all 4 wheels. This was in Maida Vale. I assumed somewhere there was a 1.6 LX ST220 replica being created.
@Dammit, new car on PCP or finance is surely only sensible for bigger annual mileages?
Will either car satisfy you big german estate craving?
This might be of help
Don't know if I should be say fuck off you owned a dawoo matiz, or you know about boring as you owned a daeoo matiz.
I wonder why they are on this thread.

Cause there isn’t a boring car topic on here.
Re Subaru.....I ran over 400 BHP with the TGV's in place :)
Wot, no Porsche?
Neil live in the UK, hence why it’s not listed.
Trued using my e34 530i this morning. I will not get into gear so I can't even drive off. Clutch feels fine I. E no long pedal and plenty of fluid so surely it can't be the master or slave cylinder. So what's wrong. Bloody cars. Had to walk to aldis no bad thing i suppose.
Does the gear lever feel normal? Will it select gears when stationary with the engine off?
Yes it will select gears with the engine off without effort so the gearbox selector works. The clutch plate must not be moving. I would have though if the trust whatever it is that connects to the slave cylinder was broken the pedal would feel light. It feels normal.
Has it stood for a while? The clutch might just be stuck on. Starting it in first often frees it.
My clutch and dual mass flywheel dropped a bollock earlier in the year. Car would not go into gear. 2k later all good. 😎
This a petrol avensis then? Think there was just a 1.8 and maybe a 2.0 available, both very reliable but very underpowered and surprisingly thirsty. The diesel engine of that era was excellent, the newer avensis (2010 on shape) was not a patch, quite weak turbo and fueling system.
Rust unlikely to be serious, middling jap saloons just gt surface rust all over in a fairly bad way from jist a few years old, would jist brush down, cold galvo spray and maybe some Hammerite over top of really bothered.
Only just seen this...
I love the forum logic. 535d is dirty so buy a v10 petrol....!
It drove fine yesterday. I am hoping it is the cold that has caused the problem and all will be well when it is warm again. I have tried starting in gear. It wont start it tries to lurch forward. I dont want to damage stuff. That clutch cist me alot of money earlier this year when it went properly wrong.
According to nextgreencar.com the following would be annual emissions based on 5k miles:
In reality, the v10 M5 is a much higher pollutant than the 535d would ever be.
Sure, a 20 yr old French diesel will pump out some nasty shit but a euro5 or euro6 diesel will actually produce similar results to the equivalent petrol engine (the v10 is not equivalent).
So the M5 produces 2 whole more tonnes of lovely life-giving CO2 (ask any plant, it’s not a sodding pollutant) but 2.36 fewer KGs of definitely carcinogenic and noxious NOx and particulates.
Yep, no question it’s a greener car. Not that I give a crap really :-)
