Nice content mate.
Saw a Porsche 911 flatnose today (late 80s mod?) and did a proper double take.

Evening all. Anyone know if doing excusively short runs in a diesel is bad for the engine over time? I am starting a new job next week and my commute goes from 22 miles each way to 7 miles, driving in a 3.0 BMW X5 diesel (58 plate). Heard mixed reviews but some people saying short runs constantly are a bad idea? Only other place I drive to is the gym, and that's 2-3 miles away every evening…

It definitely won’t be good for the engine, might not affect it instantly but long term everything will get clogged up. DPF, EGR valve and turbos all need a good run to keep them clean.
If you have to keep the car it would be worth finding a motorway fairly regularly and giving it a good blast.

Diesels aren't designed for short runs, if your DPF goes it's £££. If you're intent on keeping it, can get the DPF removed and mapped out, cheaper than a new DPF but still not loose change, it's debatable as to the legalities though and needs to be done properly to get through MOTs…..

Ditch the BMW for a BMX, kris.

could probably pickup an older petrol Porsche for that sort of money

Just take it for a decent run every couple of weekends and it will be fine, its a fairly modern car.
