its hardly as nimble as my e92 but then again i expected that
it was a promotion by lloyd bmw in north east/cumbria. i gather they bought 200+ cars after the gamesmakers etc had the first refusal.
high spec 520, 320, and 320 touring (old shape) for £23-£25k no 530 available as thats the one id probably have gone for.
its got pro nav, visibility etc etc. although i wish it was the msport
as for the deal basically they gave me 10k for my 08 e92 320 which had 4 bald tyres and was keyed on both sides (70k miles) and wanted £25k for the 520
i managed to swap the tyres for winters on the stock 17s, to drive off with and bought a set of style 328 18's for £800 (with tyres) and made them throw in tyre insurance and seal and protect (which looks rubbish - all the white polish is appearing at the door edges already)
so in all i financed 15k over 3 years, apparently the value is likely to be 13.5k then anyway so it doesnt seem too bad overall.
