The car has not suffered the timing chain fault and the car has a full service history, i really like the car it drives well, i just wanted the opinion from members as to wether the car would put them off given its milege, it is 2007 plate.
If you're on a budget always remember you might be able to get a BMW for a good price but to fix it you also need to prepare for it to be more expensive.
I've done nearly 30k in my n47 118d now on 49k and it's been fairly trouble free and quieter after timing chain was done 20k ago.
I do plan to keep it for awhile yet, so will probably have to budget for a new clutch and flywheel because clutch judder is setting.
So always think of future costs is my advice
