What's the used BMW 5 Series estate like?

BMW has always had a knack of making its estate (or ‘Touring’ in BMW parlance) models rakishly good looking and that’s certainly the case with the fourth generation of 5 Series Touring. Not only is it good-looking, but it oozes executive quality, and most models are fully equipped with all the latest technology, too.

You could be forgiven for thinking that BMW’s old ‘Ultimate Driving Machine’ slogan wouldn’t apply to its estate models, but the 5 Series Touring really is equally as happy fully laden pounding the motorways as it is on a favourite back road – although it must be said that examples equipped with the optional ‘Variable Damper Control’ (or ‘VDC’) are a whole heap more exciting in the latter case than those without.
