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

How much does it cost to run a BMW 5 Series saloon?

Chances are you'll only need deep pockets if you fancy one of the V8 petrols, which drink fuel and cost a fair whack to run.

Otherwise, running costs are pretty much on a par with rivals from Audi and Mercedes. Our fancied 520i does just over 30mpg and is in insurance group 14. Diesels can return more than 40mpg, but insurance premiums jump up.
