Thinking of buying a 07/08 BMW 530d M Sport with 60,000 approx. miles. Have been given all negative reasons why I should not buy a 530d over a 520d. Too thirsty! Tax too high! Repairs very high! Whereas on blogs from UK guys are saying they would choose a 530d over a 520d anytime.

Go for the 530d. The engine is actually rather more robust than the 520d’s (although it definitely will cost more if anything does go wrong) and while you will pay a chunk more tax and fuel, you’re getting a much better automobile with exceptional performance and refinement.
