SOLD - 550i M Sport Touring

Recommended Posts

Enthusiast owned 550i M Sport... 

 
Registered Dec 2006
Covered 101000 miles
MOT is Nov 2016 with no advisories
Tracker fitted but not activated, all paperwork included
2 working remote 'key' fobs
HPI clear
Standard car, just as BMW intended
 
 
Specification...
 
Silver Grey with Black leather
 
The 550i comes with a few additional features above the regular e61's as standard such as electric seats, electric steering column, extended interior lighting, front and rear parking sensors.
 
This car is fitted with all the essential factory optional extras, bi xenon headlights with wash, Professional Navigation (with updated 2014 genuine map disc), heated seats, etc, the full build can be seen on BMW Archive with chassis number CR95651.
 
 
History and Maintenence...
 
The car has a complete main dealer BMW history, I've got a good inch thick pile of invoices from main dealers for everything from servicing, tyres, brakes, alignment etc etc from every previous owner. 
 
In addition to this I had a full service (everything apart from spark plugs, these have been done at a previous service with invoice) done on it after I bought it in November 2014 at my local BMW specialist (BMWorkshop, Leeds) using all genuine parts and Castrol oil and brake fluid. All invoices available, it's showing a fair while until any more servicing is required.
 
It's always been run on Shell V Power in my ownership, receipts to show available.
 
I've renewed the rear pads with genuine parts, the front discs and pads were done at a main dealer by the previous owner, these are still like new.
 
It's wearing 4 matching Goodyear Runflats, I had the wheels fully refurbished last year including new genuine centre caps and M stickers.
 
I had the car professionally detailed last year and finished with a Gtechniq a Ceramic coating, it still looks great. There's no car park dents anywhere but obviously the odd mark that's unavoidable for near 10 years, nothing at all detracts from the overall appearance of the car.
 
Brand new genuine BMW floor mats fitted, Brand new genuine BMW steering wheel trim as the original had peeled under the buttons like they all do.
 
New split tailgate switch fitted and wiper assembly as the original didn't work and everything was seized up.
 
Transmission fluid/sump/filter replaced using genuine ZF parts and the correct Lifeguard 6 fluid.
 
Rear air suspension overhauled to prevent failures, this includes new air feed pipe and filter, new links, new main air distribution solenoid valve and relay. All invoices available.
 
full car software update done, this was mainly to update the idrive to the latest version which is much improved, but the car generally felt happier for having it done as it updates practically every module in the car. This was done at Autologic in Hessle, with invoice.
 
I've had the vacuum pump overhauled with new seals due to it leaking oil, I replaced the oil pressure switch situated behind it too as this was leaking slightly too, this was done at my specialist in Leeds with invoice.
 
Last year it needed a new air conditioning condensor (oem Behr part fitted) due to a few stones going through the original, obviously the system was then all re oiled and regassed, it's still going strong this year!
 
New huge Varta battery.
 
It really is looked after with no expense spared, I'm pretty confident this is the most sorted 550i out there by far.
 
 
Located between Leeds and York, any inspections welcome.
 
£9990

Just above the pictures and just below the last line saying the car is located between Leeds and York.

I'm on the hunt for an XFR.. I'm going to buy a £1k Mondeo or Vectra tomorrow to tie me over, so I can buy the exact car I want when it comes up.

 

Not bothered if it's another 6 months, or next week..

would rather have a Vectra over a Mondeo...as a daily hack a 2.2 Sri dti is unstoppable.....I have had mine since it wasn't that old and it still flying at nearly 200000 miles ....quick enough, does nearly 50 mpg and is very comfortable .....not much to complain about 

 

Friends dont let friends buy Vauxhalls.

Cheers, all my interest came through eBay too.

 

Picked up my stop-gap this morning...

 

It's pretty tatty, the blower motor is a bit noisy, Aircon doesn't work... but it's got new tyres, newish brakes, sensible miles - 98k, 11 months mot! and a 3.2 litre V6...

 

£430!!

Nice choice but if you're not bothered about a bigger car then go for the new XJ like I did recently. XF's are everywhere whereas the XJ is a much rarer sight and surprisingly light on its feet considering its extra bulk. The beauty of the XJ is that its lighter than the XF, XF steel body, XJ aluminium body with heaps more kit, more space and just as quick.

 

I have the 5.0V8 in all singing & dancing Portfolio spec. The car is almost supercar quick and has everything from a heated steering wheel, leather everywhere to a 1200Watt Bowers & Wilkins Audio System... ;)

I really like the XJ, but I want the extra performance of the 5.0 Supercharged V8, an XJ with that engine are a lot more money.

 

I'm having the timing belt done on this on Thursday so I'm tempted to have a year out and just run this and save up some extra cash.

A massive amount of car for not a lot of £££ at all!

 

Pretty easy to fix too; the air-con will either be a simple re-gas, or IIRC, one of the pipes that leads to the condenser can fray and leask from there, so that may just need replacing!

I'll probably just leave the Aircon..

 

A regas will be over 10% of the purchase price, then if there is a leak (likely) then I'll want it fixed, if it's a condenser it'll be that plus another regas, or pipe plus regas, I could end up being £250 in! 

 

Just can't see the value in it.
