BMW 318d ES Touring
Price 25,965
Target Price 24,397

Not the biggest estate, but the 3 Series is great to drive and more practical than David's Jag. This 2.0-litre diesel version manages 59mpg.

BMW 520d SE Touring, '09/09
Price 22,300

Just as good as the 3 Series to drive, but with a bigger loadbay. There are plenty of one-year-old cars around within David's budget.

Mercedes E220 CDI Av'garde Estate, '08/08
Price 22,000

David's keen on a BMW, but he could also have a look at the Merc E-Class. It has an even bigger boot than the BMWs above and is very classy.
