BMW M5 Touring

These cars are attractive to me BUT I reckon they could be a huge risk hence low 'residuals'.

Anyway this car is reported to have a good service history but is it?

Most items listed are marked as not maintained!

When I serviced my 370Z I used to list everything I did but this appears to show everything they didn't do!

Am I missing something here?

Amazing cars, well engines. I borrowed one for a month from a good friend. They need to be wrung out, possibility of some spectacular bills. Proper ones. Very proper ones.

Its a supercar engine, last of a type. My friend had some issues with his gearbox and sun roof, all done under warranty.

I wouldn't buy one of these from an auction. I'd be looking at owners sites or specialist dealers.

It's in the pics Jon.

Remember I posted about a black one a few weeks ago and you replied?

Hope to make the viewing next Friday with Tim W.

Coming?

I do remember it Rob. I liked that too. Don’t think I can come to the auction.

Can I be the old grannie here and ask "what's the point?"

It's an Estate.
It's an automatic.
It drinks.
Costs a fortune merely to have on your front drive BEFORE you turn the key.
Parts and servicing are supercar too.

Somebody ?

Blinded by science - now....put that in an S30 2+2 and Icould understand the smirk on your face.

So you are equating a S30 2+2 = an Estate

Doesn't everyone ? At least I didn't mention the 'W' word.

I quoted it because it is a 2+2 and a Z, nothing more.
