Re: 03 Lag2 Initiale Tourer or 08 BMW 520d Msport Tourer

The 530d has a single turbo ,the 535d has twin sequential turbos (one small one that gets things going,then another bigger one to make things more exciting),but having had a quick go in a 535d I would say that the 530d is plenty enough in most circumstances.

A friend of mine has a 330d thats remapped to give near 300bhp,and although I haven't been in it yet I'm told that it is pretty impressive,although the way he drives it the local hedges around here will be getting a new decoration parked on top of them somewhere in the near future!.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
