    Merc CLS or BMW E63

    Afternoon everyone,looking for opinions on either of the above, I,m looking for a 2nd car to replace my e46 325Ci,the car will be used for my work commute and leisure motoring at weekends,wife has an Audi 3.2 quattro that she is happy with also being a Sportback we can get the dog in so my choice is wide open, Budget is around 5k,prefer petrol not diesel,fuel economy not a big issue as some weeks the car can sit at work all week, There are quite a few Merc CLS 350,s and BMW 630&645,s around but i don,t know much about either.

  9. Looks nice that Adam,i,ve been scanning the classifieds for my next car and the Lexus GS300 is quite high on my list.

    Looks identical to my old 52 reg,only mine had darker tint rear windows.

    Beige interior. Convince me!

    I had a 530i Sport Tourer in Topaz Blue with the beige interior and although at first it looked well,it doesn,t take long for it to get grubby,i only drove it at weekends and the dye off my jeans soon started to colour the drivers seat, Some interiors have the black dash and door tops which breaks the beige up a bit but mine was all beige and it soon started to annoy me on what was otherwise an excellent car.

    E39 530i - 55k miles

    I think anyone that is paying those prices for basic spec e39,s must be an enthusiast,it,s a 17year old gas guzzler,with cheap tyres and it will need a service and preventative maintenance doing to it no matter what the ad says, I can see the price premium on Alpinas and M5,s but the classifieds are littered with e39 520,s 525,s and 530,s that in my opinion are way over priced, Don,t get me wrong,I love the e39 and would have another,still wish today i had my 530i Sport Tourer,but i also wish some of these bidders had been about when i was selling mine.

    Very nice Mart,hope its all you want it to be, I do think your E61 looks the business too.

    E39 530i - 55k miles

    He wants big money for it,i,m sure it was up as a classified ad for either 6 or 7 thousand about a month ago.

    It’s been a while....

    The two don,t always go hand in hand though,i was over the bloody moon after my divorce 18years ago,as i went on to find,fall in love and marry the woman of my dreams, Essex Boy,post as many pics of your M5 as you can as it looks bloody gorgeous inside and out.
  24. Probably the better option Mazi,not a massive difference in power and slightly more economical to run, I,ve been looking at the classifieds for a work/weekend toy and the S and CL,s are definetly on my radar.
  25. That looks well Mazi,unusually low mileage for one of them.
