2007 BMW 520d or 2008 320d Coupe?

Hi,

I'm planning to purchase either a 2007 BMW 520d M Sport automatic (M47 engine) or a 2008 BMW 320d Coupe automatic (N47 engine). I've heard the N47 engine is prone to timing chain issues. Does that only occur when it reaches high mileage? Or overall is the 520d a much better car because I just need some pros and cons before I buy either one.

Sandra.

What will I replace my Mazda3 with?

I'd like to replace my Mazda3 petrol 1.6 for a diesel car or SUV; what would you recommend? I'd like something with good fuel economy as I do over 360 miles a week, mostly motorway driving, and lower tax preferably. I have two young children in car seats. I'm looking for something a year or two old, but not a Golf.

Thanks
