Went to go and see a 530i touring today, as it was only 8 miles away. In carbon black with 98k miles it seemed ro be a bargain at £3995
First impressions were good as it looked pretty clean from the front.
I jumped in and started it up, started on the button and idled nicely.
Interior was in ok condition, a few scratches here and there. Then came the bad points:
Idrive navigation didn't work
Passenger side heated seat didn't work
Service was overdue
Could smell oil inside with the heating on so I popped the bonnet and saw the rocker cover gasket visibly leaking! There was smoke everywhere! It didn't bother me massively as the car was cheap enough and I did the rocker cover gasket on my Clubsport easily enough.
I took another walk around the car and noticed quite a few scratches on the passenger side quarter panel and a scuff on the bumper.
I decided it was worth it if I got it cheap enough, and walked back into the reception. I thought I'd call the guys bluff by just handing the keys back, and hoping he'd be willing to discuss the price. Instead he took the key back, said thanks and turned back to his computer screen!
The hunt goes on...

Rude b@stard! They had a few other E60s aswell but I didn't even bother asking about them out of principle. I'd rather pay more elsewhere than deal with people like that

I'd say you can probably be quite picky with an E60 can't you, Rey? There are plenty about I'd imagine. How about a Superb. Loads of toys, affordable they do a 3.5 V6.

They're lovely mate, but every time I swap a bmw for another VAG car, I always regret it within a few days! That's the reason I haven't got myself an Octavia VRS, along with the fact that the roof lining and A/B/C pillars aren't black! I think it's definitely got to be an E60/61 or E91 now...

The 7 series in your op, definitely something like that. They look great with a few mods, some decent wheels and on air, plus you don't see many modified 7s about, always good to have something a little different hey.

The first audi in Chris's post looks mean n'all, love it.

the clubsport advert is more of a feeler for now... im not sure i want to sell it really, but if someone offered me money id probably take it. the family car dilemma has been solved, i bought an audi a3 sportback 2.0tdi as a family wagon, so selling the clubsport and replacing it with a family car wont be necessary. that being said, i'm thinking if the clubsport does go, i'll replace it with either a 330i E92 or a 630i E63; thats the next decision! :D
