Thinking of buying an E60, looking for opinions

Good morning all,

I'm thinking about buying a new (to me) E60 with 27,500km on it. The asking price is $89,000 CAN

The options on the vehicle are as follows:
Ventilated Seats Front
Madeira Wood Trim
Heads Up Display
Executive Package
Comfort Access
M Multifunction Seats
Active Seat Bolsters
Manual Side Sunshade
Elect Rear Sunshade
Heated Seats Rear
Park Distance Control (PDC)
Winter tires & rims

Exterior colour - Black
Interior colour - Silverstone Full Merino Leather

The production date was May of 2006

I have attached a few pics.

Is this a fair price for the vehicle? Any help in making this decision would be appreciated.

I like!!

I wish I could get one for that price over here in Ireland!!!!

I presume that those are the winter tyres and the standard set come with the car?

Only thing I would like to change is the interior trim, I'm just not a fan of wood trim - yet


Best of luck with your decision!!

Richie.

Nice one!

Check this out, a 1 year old with similar mileage;

That is WELL over 150k CAD!!!

Your profile doesn't list what you currently own. And from your sig, whatever it is that you have has lots of farkles, but again, I'm having to guess that it's an E39 (since you are posting an E60 question on the E39 board)?

Can't help you on the price since I live in America and our dollar is falling by the minute. Last I checked, a Canadian dollar will now buy half of Wisconsin.

Nice looking car... but if you move from an E39 to the E60, you will miss the torque. And having a proper transmission.

I currently drive a 2000 E39 M5 (which I love!).

I meant to post this in the E60 section however I guess I messed up. How can I move the post now?

That's awesome J

I noticed the signature change in your previous post and was wondering when you upgraded. Thats a great colour combo you got there !

So tell us a bit about your driving impressions so far. What in your opinion is a lot better with the new car than your old E39? What features are you already missing from the old M5?

So what else you got to sell me from the E39 M5? (wink)
