Hi all. Just signed up with this forum. Some of you might remember me from the old BMW Car Club Ireland forum. Currently in a 01 530d Touring Manual Topaz Blue. Currently attempting to solve usual niggling problems with this machine. There were a total of 1,533123 E39's built. Glad to be the keeper of one of them.

Hello I'm new here folks.
I own a 03 D Sterling Silver 520I SE A/T with 55k on the clock.
It's my first BMW and I love it but I will be on the look out for a 530 D with as many conceivable extras as possible in the coming months :)

Mad mc does my car get added to the list lol? :)
Question for the 530D owners...
I do only about 6k miles a year.. very low I know.
I get about 26mpg combined with the 520I.
Would I save much in terms of fuel costs doing the mileage I do with a 530D?
I have heard people can get 40-45mpg with a 530D and I would like to get some idea if it is worth the fuel costs saving doing the mileage I do or would I be better off getting a 525I or 530I?
Thanks!

While a 525d or 530d will give you 40-45mpg, that's mostly on country roads and motorway driving. With your milage, I can't see any benefits in getting a diesel, especially when the spec is higher in a lot of petrol ones and the pricing is lower currently to buy one, when everybody else driving long distance is trying to grab a diesel.
