I've been offered a D reg 518i saloon.
Never owned a 'beemer' before so I''d appreciate any info.
I'm used to the likes of 2.9 V6i 4X4Ghia Granada's and 2ltr DOHC Sierra's.
The OH likes the BMW although he can't drive.
This car is a Gold Metallic and in almost mint condition. The insurance is no more than my current car which is a crappy Orion. I'm desperate for a 'decent' motor.
Are these a good car to drive? Not driven it yet!!
Are they reasonably economical for the size??
Is there anything, in particular, I should look for??
It's sat for 6 months, only being turned over once a week, as the previous owner. A 72 yr old, who's had it 9 yrs, has cataracts and can't drive anymore.
What kind of price should I be looking at?? I'm on the North East if that makes a difference?
