What's the used BMW 5 Series estate like?

The BMW 5 Series Touring is the smallest of the trio of German estates from this era – the gargantuan Mercedes E-Class is by far by the biggest, and the Audi A6 Avant is somewhere between. There's still plenty of room in the BMW's boot, however, and it's easy to load thanks to a low sill and a wide opening.

Once you've stuffed all of the garden rubbish in the back, you'll have the best time driving to the dump. This 5 Series Touring is almost as good as the award-winning saloon, so it's much better than the E-Class or the A6.
