What used BMW X5 4x4 will I get for my budget?
The diesel BMW X5 3.0d was the most popular model by quite some margin, and if high mileages hold no fear then £7500 will buy you one with over 150,000 miles, increasing to £10,000 if you want a sub-100,000-mile car. Note, these figures are for the SE trim – you’ll need to increase the budget by £2000 to get an M Sport. Meanwhile, prices for a facelift 30d with 50,000 miles on the clock start at £20,000.
If you don’t cover many miles a petrol model could be for you, but you’ll struggle to find a 3.0-litre as so few were sold. The V8-engined 4.8i (or xDrive50i in facelift guise) offers a lot of car for the money – a 2007 4.8i with 60,000 miles costs £13,000, while a facelift xDrive50i from 2011 with 40k miles costs £18,000.
