I'd take your number off the eBay advert pal. Risk of getting shithead callers on a daily basis

 

Just tell them to send you a message to chat further that way!

2. "car is F10 money bla bla bla". No. Just no. This car is some bottom of the barrel F10 money, with crappy spec and definitely not a 535d M sport either. So please, keep that to yourself.

 

 

You’ve never seen my F10 then?

Thirty-odd years ago I was looking for a vehicle and ended up paying almost double what I intended. This was partly because my original budget was inadequate and would only buy a roughish example, and partly because I found one that I considered worth coughing up the extra for. You know the sort of stuff - one enthusiast owner, great condition, reams of paperwork etc.

 

It hurt financially and I wondered for a while whether I'd been daft to pay so much. I got a bit of consolation from this quote from John Ruskin.

 

 

“There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are that person’s lawful prey. It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money — that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot — it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”

 

 

I've no idea on prices but it sounds to me like this is the sort of enthusiast's car that another enthusiast will be willing to pay a bit more for.

Enthusiast owned...means nothing.

I'm not getting involved with the opinions on the price being asked but, I would certainly disagree with "enthusiast owned meaning nothing". Granted, there will always be the "bad eggs" as in all walks of life but I think you've a fair chance of getting a better example of whatever you're looking for, rather than trawling non enthusiast sellers with A/T or ebay ads.

 

If I were looking for another 5, I'd start here first!

Price Drop Bump

 

Price is now £12,495 or £11,200 without the wheels (you'd have to bring your own set). Open to close offers within reason.

 

Also since the initial posting of the ad, the car has had a software update performed by Sytner BMW (on both iDrive and ECU) with receipt and invoice as proof. Drives even smoother now :)

Bump

 

Some interest and offers around 10.5k but not quite what I'd like to take. If anyone is serious about buying it I will take into serious consideration offers of high 11s.

 

Thank you

Sid

So some of us were right about the original overpricing then ? It’s an old car for a lot of money. Spec a condition add value, but not as much as we would all like to think.

Final price drop

 

£11,995 as is.

 

£10,995 if you bring your own set of wheels.

 

As for the above comments, thanks for your input but it really makes no difference. It is priced as per spec, condition and rarity. If you are unable to value that, it is not the car for you, stick to CAT D 520d's for 4k ;)

 

Cheers, Sid

Lovely car mate and a credit to you based on the condition its in, looks absolutely lovely and as you mentioned I'm sure there will be an enthusiast who will appreciate the work that has gone into the car. 

 

However, if you dont mind I will add my bit of "wisdom" as I was very much in a similar boat to you with my old E90

 

My Car was a 320d 60 plate (i know not much compared to a 535d) but just like yours, was immaculate, had many options and was extremely well specc'd for its year with rare stuff like a heated steering wheel. Had had 95k on the clock, a recent service, new brake pads, freshly refurbished alloys and tyres with 3k miles on them. 

 

I wanted £8500 for it and that was a LOT of car for the money. Thought that Spec considered, people would jump at the option as it was a very tasty car for the price. Had lots of people call and even visit, having the cheek to offer "£5500 cash today".

 

As an E90, it was bang on the money, Problem was, you could have a 12 plate F30 with twice the miles and no options for little more. And people like the idea of a newer car. Ive had a look on autotrader and your E60 is the most expensive privately sold 535d in that shape online. In fact you can get an F1x 535d M Sport for the same money. Yes it will be more tired, have more miles and probably have been abused but your everyday buyer won't care.

 

I'm not knocking your car or price in anyway. All I want to say is that you have to wait for the buyer that will appreciate the car. If you have the time then no issue. I held on to my E90 and sold it for close to £8k within less than 4 weeks, wasn't in a rush where people on Bimmerfourms told me to lower price to under £6k because the car is not worth it and wouldnt never sell. 

 

Stick with it and the car will hopefully get a new owner that will appreciate it soon and you get the money that your'e happy with (Y)

 

Sorry for the long rant haha

I know exactly where you are coming from mate, plenty of people will go after the newer car but not take into consideration the options, condition, and history of the vehicle. Especially rarity. When I looked for my E46 M3 before this car, there was a few E92 M3s for the same money give or take, but the way I see it, if somebody wants an E60 535d in this spec, then this is what they can buy. I am not trying to market it to people who want a 535 for 12k, it is for people who want a superbly maintained E60. It gets more way comments about it's looks from my colleagues at work compared to the rest of them in the car park and most 5ers here are F or G series... I am not in a rush anyway so it's ok, thank you for the input though I appreciate it!

Hi iinnex

Would you be interested in a PX?. I have a Mazda estate which is also a 57 plate with a super low 79k miles on in great condition. I'm looking for another BMW.

Say my car and £5k?

 

Thanks

 

Hello there bud,

 

Unfortunately I will have to decline that offer. I am looking to buy something else and would prefer the cash instead.

 

Many thanks,

Sid

Out of interest, what has happened round the back? The 535d badge is not in the correct place and doesn't look straight? What was repaired?

 

No it was debadged at one point and the previous owner put it back on but not to the best alignment out there lol. I have been meaning to get around to doing it, might sort it this weekend actually if the weathers nice.

I echo the post above. If someone is looking for a well sorted car (regardless of what it is) they will pay good money for it.

 

When I sold my 530d, I had a to wait a few weeks, but eventually someone bought it.

 

He was fed up with looking at poor cars and was happy to pay a bit extra for a good example that needed nothing spending on it.

 

Good luck with the sale.
