Hi, I don't even know if I am going to buy a BMW 5 series (diesel) as I am worried about repair costs etc so I need some reassurance. To be honest I love the older BMW 5 series with the leather seats and wood surround and for around £2-3,000 there looks to be some real beauties out there. But most of these seem to have mileage of anything between 100k and 200k. Is this a problem, what sort of max mileage should I be looking at and what model 520d, 525d or 530d is best? What are the expensive things that are known to go wrong?
My car would really only be used at weekends so not much mileage at all for the year.
Thanks for any advice.
ps should I post this in the 5 series part as well?
