Ownership cost

What used BMW 5 Series saloon will I get for my budget?

Early petrol examples are now available for slightly more than £2000, while diesels cost from about £2500, but in both cases you’re looking at a car that’s been to the moon and back.

In contrast, if you increase your budget to £8000 you can get a late 520d model that’s covered about 10,000 miles a year. This represents a lot of car for your money.
