Looking to get an E60 soon
This is my first post here! I hope to post a lot in the upcoming months as I get closer to the purchase of this new "to me" vehicle.
So I wanted to reach out to the more experienced BMW owners to get an idea of what to expect maintenance wise and other. I am honestly looking at the 545 or 550. I have never had a V8 and looking forward to power of this vehicle.
I am somewhat comfortable with certain DIY as I have had an A6 2.7T for the past 6 years. I have done spark plugs, ing coils, oil change, filter changes, nothing too technical though. But I do understand that there is some maintenance involved. I have also heard that BMW's tend to be more reliable than audi, and the cost of ownership me be a bit more reasonable...but not sure.
So...any advice you could give, what to look out for and all would be greatly appreciated.
I really want a manual, however there don't seem to be very many available...that I have seen anyway.
