Buying advice on newer 5-series?
Currently have a 2002 530i. Love it but now looking for more predictable car expense... likely another 5, 2008 or newer, Sport package, CPO...
Would really appreciate opinions and experiences with any of the 5-series models, especially regarding the different engine options.
I love the inline six on my current 530. It's smooth, powerful and has proved reliable. So am tempted to stick with that on a newer model. But what about the turbo engines? Recall hearing not-so-good things about them in the past (fast but prone to repair trouble) but some say BMW have resolved that now? And there's the V8s on the 550s? Haven't heard much at all about those.
Oh, and then there's the polarizing run-flats debate...
Any advice and counsel, pluses and minuses, positives and negatives, all gratefully received. Thanks much.
