Overview

"Excellent excellent "

Exterior and Interior

My 5 series came in standard form apart from tinted windows. The exterior styling is great and the interior comes with leather as standard, parking sensors all round, cruise, bluetooth, ipod etc. I was pleasantly surprised at the equipment level and it feels like a real quality motor. On a long drive it is really comfy and there is plenty of room for the family. Having had an E-class before this, the equipment and performance is better on the BMW.

Performance and Economy

For a 2 litre engine the performance is excellent, just over 180bhp is plenty for this car and will whisk you to high speed in no time. Fully loaded at 70mph on the motorway it returns about 55mpg with less around town. A great balance between performance and economy.

Like to Drive

This car is really good to drive, it feels confident in the lanes and super comfortable on a long journey. The seats are electric and able to get you in the perfect driving position and could almost be described as fun to drive! <

Faults and Repairs

No issues with the car after 90000 miles, excellent dealer service. Tyre wear is also good but the run flats are not cheap to replace. So far so good!

Overview

"BMW 520D M Sport 2011 "

Exterior and Interior

Exterior & interior is spot on, the sumptuously trimmed, smartly styled cabin makes you feel special every time you get in the BMW 5 Series 520d M Sport. Refinement is top-notch, too. Leather is standard and plenty of toys to keep you busy; iDrive with all the usual features including navigation. Impressed with onlline connected drive with Google, news, sport etc. The interior is driver focused a pleasure to be in everytime.

Performance and Economy

The turbodiesel engine is strong, smooth and efficient. If you are looking for a mid range engine which gives satisfying response but not bothered about beating the petrol head at the lights then this is for you.

Like to Drive

This is no sluggish engine, it has bite but just not of a genuine sport kind. Economy is good giving 600+ miles for a full tank of fuel. Great to drive on motorways, very comfortable. All the extra that you get with the car makes the journey very pleasent. <

Faults and Repairs

Most German built cars like the BMW are renowned for being reliable and this model is no diffrent. To date, no faults to report on. With regular servicing and general care, this is a car that go on and on.
