What should I look for in a used BMW 5 Series estate?
As the vast majority of BMW 5 Series Tourings will have been company cars they should have been well maintained. However, company cars don’t tend to be quite as loved as privately owned examples. so check the paintwork for swirl marks as a result of too many visits to automated car washes.
These are also very complex cars and can have a surprising amount of gadgets fitted, so before you go out car shopping, it makes sense to familiarise yourself with their operation, so that you can make sure everything works.
