Hey guys,

I'm in the midst of either buying a new BMW320d M-Sports @ BMW525 M-Sports (used) @ Fairlady 350z (used)

Can anyone share some opinion which car would you choose and why?

Reason for me to consider 320d M-Sport was because:
1- Fuel consumption vs high torque
2- Sporty
3- Bimmer
4- iDrive

Reason for me to consider 525i M-Sport was because:
1- Beautiful 6 potter
2- iDrive
3- My dream car

Reason for me to consider 350Z was because:
1- I want to try driving a sports car
2- My dream entry sports car
3- Looks
4- Style

THanks.

@DanzEterna, yeah, 525 is really spacious and really one hell of a smooth ride. 320d is quite torque which is awesome when I tested it apart from the harsh diesel engine sound; not that it's too loud, hardly can hear it when your're inside the car. 350Z in other hand is a beautiful piece of machine although it has expensive roadtax thanks to the big engine.

@xtremeleo, yeah 320d is quite a nice little car.

i wudnt get the 350z for its performance sir, the roadtax alone is 4300hengget anually. the roadtax for the diesel will have a 50% reduction because its at least a euro1 emission compliant, not to mention its the mosr frugal in the list sir

@xtremeleo, I really think the roadtax is proportional to it's engine capacity as a sports car. I mean, if bought 370z or other higher end sports car even M5, the roadtax will be higher too correct?

I like the 320d but it is too small lah when look at it many times. Unlike it's big bro 5 series. Maybe I should get 520d? lol

Oh, maintenance for diesel car are expensive than normal petrol cars meh? Didn't know about that. In that case then maybe 5 series petrol is more suitable for me.

Still looking for 5 series black msports which spots night vision, push start etc gadgets for around 200k or a little bit more depends.

Cheapest RoadTax Sports Cars is still either the RX-8 or RX-7 :biggrin:

p.s: Used Toyota Supra Road Tax Cheaper than 350Z :smile:

So far I heard rx-7/8 easy to burn your left feet, hot gearbox..lol..nah, not really interested in them. If I got money to burn, I would get the 370z or perhaps R35..
