F11 520d Sport Touring Auto new Engine by BMW

Recommended Posts

Price drop and new tyres.


Here we have my F11 2011 BMW 520D M Sport £8200 ono.


I have a mini blog going (via my username, what have you done today etc) But I need a smaller car and want a 3.0 6 pot. It is advertised on Ebay (full of choppers) and Autotrader. 


It has the usual equipment but with added shadow line trim, black head lining and sports gear box with flappy paddles.  It has business Nav with DVD playing enabled.  It has extras and all gadgets work from heated seats, auto lights, auto wipers, high beam assist, voice activation, remote folding rear seats, auto boot load cover, front & rear sensors to name a few. 



This August (at 122k) the chain snapped and BMW repaired and rebuilt the engine. This has a 2 year warranty from BMW.  I have a print out from BMW Plymouth detailing the repair work. BMW Snows carried out the work.


Since I have owned the car I have:


Added black front grills to match the shadow line trim.

Upgraded the screen to a full size Android unit. It runs the BMW system and the Android system side by side with all wheel and centre controls active. 

Updated the BMW Maps to 2018.

Replaced the interior lamps and rear plate lamps to LEDs.

Had a full service carried out (Oil, Oil Filter, Fuel Filter, Coolant and brake fluid check)

4 wheel alignment

New wiper blades 


The original front chrome grills can also be fitted.

The car drives really well, pulls well for its size (especially in sport mode), no noises or clunks, the Nav system also indicates on to the dash, the android unit has DAB it also has a rear parking camera but I have not gotten round to fitting that yet. The interior is immaculate, the drivers seat has the expected wear nothing to mention.  All controls work as they should heat/AC, seats etc.


There are a few scratches on the body work in line with the mileage.  The car is regularly waxed and washed and has a deep shine. The alloys have minor scuffing and are fitted with Rim Blades, the rear bumper has a small crack in it and a boot lip protector fitted. 


Proof of driving licence and insurance will be required for a test drive.


I live in Plymouth, I will be in Portsmouth from the 19th till the 21st when I return to Devon, I will be in the US from the 22nd till the 28th. 


Please feel free to ask any questions, and feed back is welcome.
