I am new to the forum.
I am considering purchase of a BMW e60.
525i and 530i, years 2004-2005, mileage 70,000-100,000kms.
These cars cost almost same price here.
After reading sticky post about e60 problems here i wanted to ask for advice from you. Would you expect much maintenance and problems from the car of a similar age assuming that it was reasonably looked after and serviced in BMW centers only?
Are there any specific areas I should look at when inspecting the car? I am not newbie in cars, just never had a BMW before.
