THX... TBH I am the wrong person to ask as I am old-school BMW and not a fan of this shape... Having said this it really looks a nice motor...
As I am in the UK I am not certain of the current exchange-rate to Sterling but would definately get that price down, or even ask for extras such as Warranty, free maintenance and breakdown cover (Doubt the latter would be needed)...
If you wanna do a conversion I wouldn't pay more than 8-9k GBP (Sterling) for this car...
Hope this helps mate

well?

Don't know if you made it to the lot yet, but if not I suggest you watch some nature movies of things like venus flytraps, pitcher plants, and spider webs. That's what it is like going there. See the pretty car, drive it and you're done. You'll do whatever it takes to drive it home.

Verne is an unknown quantity at this point
That looks a very clean motor and the price looks pretty good based on the prices over here, albeit with higher mileage than I'd like personally.
Especially with that sort of mileage I'd be looking for similar cover to what I have with my 2006 320d bought last month here in the UK.
It came with full service history, 12 months MOT, 12 Months BMW warranty and 12 months BMW breakdown cover.

Good luck

Let there be light, sound, drums, guitar
LET THERE BE ROCK

The E60 is an expensive car. The electronics are costly to repair when they fail. The iDrive system wasnt optional on the E60, and they have a few issues. Just keep that in mind. Get a warranty that covers electronics.

I prescribe you view some nature films of things such as venus flytraps, pitcher plants, and cobwebs. That is what it is like going there. See the all in all auto, drive it and you're finished.
