10k p.a.

Pointless buying a diesel for economy on that mileage.  The purchase price offsets any saving from the mpg.

Residuals on the 530i are weaker though.

You've not said what you want out of a car.  Are you performance inclined?  If so, buy the 535d.  If not, buy the 530i.

What age of car are you looking at and which country? Might help us with a bit of advice.

If you are only doing 10k/year don't buy a diesel.

They do not like lots of short journeys & 10k is well under the "break even point" for the cost of diesel over petrol ownership.

Diesel engines are far more thermally efficient which means they take longer to warm up & in that period they use lots more fuel.

Ignore NiceNewMrMe - he has got his Man Period.  Again.

What he means is that the 530i will lose more value from new, so you will be able to buy a 530i for a lot less money.

Personally I would buy the 535d, because I love the devil's fuel :grin:

I couldn't give a feck.  Stupid fecking question and a stupid fecking reply from him.  

He's on the internet.

Look up 'residual value'.

He's said he's afraid a diesel might be too much to service.  Eh?  As opposed to petrol servicing costs?  There may be a difference but if that means it'll be too fecking expensive then he shouldn't be fecking looking at a fecking 530i or 53-fecking-5d in the first fecking place.

He's wasting time.  The dealers will have told him about fecking service packs.  But then again he's probably never even been fecking near one.

He said 'new car'.  I thought he meant 'new car'.  He didn't say "used car".  He didn't say "new car to me".  Then again, nor did he say "I haven't a fecking clue what I'm talking about".

Fecking waste of time.  

Have a nice day.:grin:

OK, so if I can't have a 53-feckin-0 or a 53-arsing-5, can I have a 330 or 335, i, d or any other letter then?

Miserable feck

He can have a Hawaii-5-fecking-0 for all I care.  Even then he'll probably ask where Ha-fecking-waii is. :blink::grin:

Hi. Yes english is my second language... Sure, not new car. I mean 2008 - 2009 year... But if I check I not see too much difference of price between diesel and petrol cars from this years..  and it is good idea buy diesel with about 200K kilometres ? I have diesel audi 2008 now with 218K km and still the same repairs now.. (buy with 198K with full service book) so i am affraid from many repairs again and again... and as I said i drive only about 10K yearly...

OK, you sound a bit conflicted here. The 535 is a better engine, because it's more powerful, simple as that. It has more power and torque. It will use more fuel. It will be no more expensive to service and maintain than a 530.  All of this is true whether you look at 535d v 530d or 535i v 530i.  All four of those cars have a 3 litre straight 6 engine - the block is the same.

200k km? The engines will last forever if they're looked after properly, but you're going to start running into issues at that kind of total km with wear on the clutch, bearings, suspension etc.

Personally if I had a strict budget to stick to, I would go for a slightly older car with a good service history and fewer miles and if only 10,000km per year, then buy a petrol.

Aye, whatever. :roflmao:

As we've now got the 535i as well as the 530i and 535d in the equation, I think we should throw in the 318i, M5, 650i and the 116d.  I mean, why the feck not?
