Diesel being demonised by UK governments having encouraged us all into them, I decided to go the petrol route so I've gone from a 46 mpg diesel to a 30 mpg petrol (which is still pretty good for a large 340bhp car!)

Hope you got a good deal! Pre-reg and pre-owned 6GT's are ridiculously cheap. mine was ex BMW, 6 months old with 4.5k miles and I paid 30k under list.
Hi there, Yes I am aware of the diesel issues. That's partly why I went for the "most green" option. I paid 35,000 for mine, book price was 48,000. I looked online and I could get ones closer to 30k, even much higher specs (x drive etc) with the 620D being similar to the 640's....Crazy. But I am very particular with the options I want, so I have done a factory order as there were none around - at least I can ensure it's been run in correctly. Thats what I tell myself anyway!!

Running costs and depreciation - small change compared to the M5. I estimate in 5 years, I will sell it for 12k. Thats 23k deprecation not bad when you consider the M5 will have lost 60k +.
