Re: 03 Lag2 Initiale Tourer or 08 BMW 520d Msport Tourer
I'm not sure on the later models,but certaintly the earlier 2litre TD's were very fragile.I suspect that they may have sorted the problems out now though,the ones I have changed were on 2002-2004 cars.I would definately check out a BMW forum just to make sure the exact details,it could save you a lot of money.
Well I've had a look around and there do seem to be some problems with pre 07 models but don't feel particularly enlightened as there is no decent Beemer forum like this one. I may now be tempted by the 3l as I have seen a nice 07 530d MSport Tourer for silly money with all the kit and leather interior.
What does concern me is that I understand the 3l has twin turbos which scares me slightly
