Re: 03 Lag2 Initiale Tourer or 08 BMW 520d Msport Tourer
It depends on the mileage that you will do I suppose,but don't completely discount the auto/tiptronic until you've driven one.My F-I-L wanted a manual as he's not a fan of auto's in general,but once he'd test driven the auto he instantly changed his mind.
I'd definately test drive one,especially if it has the M-sport suspension and see what you think.I would guess that the ride is too hard for some,especially with the run flat tyres.
I have had a good nose around a couple and have noted the space under the boot floor for some kind of spare. My thought on the runflats is to replace them with decent standard tyres when they need it and get a spare wheel. I have heard that the runflats can lose pressure and also cause tramlining on some surfaces due to their rigidity.
