    Having sold my S210 320 cdi, I decided to stay with German but newer and BMW. Found an 08 520d touring. High mileage (170,000) but history and timing chain done.
    In the 2 months I've had it it has had to have:
    EGR valve
    DPF
    Inlet manifold (cracked)
    Fault with ABS/ traction control.
    Now it has decided it doesn't like injector no 1 and has possibly damaged a valve and or a piston!
    Wish I'd kept the 210!

    You can be unlucky with any car you buy - it's a lottery as there is a certain amount of luck.

    That's the "joy" of cars sometimes.
