What used BMW 3 Series estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a BMW 3 Series estate?

The only trouble with the Touring is that, like any 3 Series, it's so desirable – which means it's an expensive used buy.

However, once you have one, running costs aren't too bad. Four-cylinder petrol cars (especially the later models) return well over 30mpg, and even the six-cylinder models aren't too far behind, as long as you drive gently.
