I was amazed by the car and its condition. The lengths the garage go to in their preparation is beyond expectations. I've never seen anything quite like to if I'm honest! 

 

‘So you’ve bought it then?

Very nice ;)

 

Get some pictures up when you’ve got it home and on the drive, or it didn’t happen ;) :P :lol:

The first E60 I test drove was a 2006 N52 525i. In hindsight I should probably have bought it, although it had 20k more miles on it and was more expensive than the 2004 530i M54 that I ended up buying a couple of months later. Quite hard to find the N52. By that time most were buying diesel, and the N52 was only available for a couple of years before the impressive but flawed and troublesome N53 arrived.

Congrats !

 

So how was the 3.0l N52 ? 

 

Thanks! It was silky smooth with plenty of go when you wanted it.

Really glad you're happy with it @matt5559

 

As I said; it it had been for sale when I was looking back in July, I'd have bought it too

 

It ticked all the boxes I wanted to move from my E39 530i Sport etc...

 

Enjoy the new toy ;)
