I bought this BMW in 2018 from a couple who had owned it since being passed down from the wife’s father, a retired police officer, who purchased it new from Crossflags BMW in Dumfries where it was serviced up until 43000 miles, it has a total of 13 services in the book, and since my ownership I have every invoice for work carried out on the car in my 15000 miles covered, some of the recent invoices include;

Air suspension bags (this week)
Laser balance wheel alignment
Beru glow plugs + Relay control module
Bosch mass air flow meter changed
New exhaust manifold & fitting gaskets
New starter motor
The battery was also replaced by the previous owner just before I bought the car.
It’s also just had 4x brand new Michelin pilot’s on with the invoice present, loads of past mot’s and old invoices too.

Rare Chiaretto red factory colour which paired with M-Sport alloys makes it a real head turner, always gets complimented especially after being washed. No corrosion to bodywork & clean underneath too, other than a couple of age/use related scratches the only real blemish to the exterior is a 50 pence sized ripple on the drivers passenger door.

SE spec with Electric memory Dakota leather seats & wood trim, interior is in very good condition, ice cold air con was handy this summer!

Mechanically very sound with a smooth six speed automatic gearbox which changes crisply through each gear, very torquey Diesel engine which sounds great, it’s also never towed anything which is worth mentioning.

Great motorway cruiser for long journeys, traveled up and down the UK in this car and with some of the comfiest seats I’ve sat in, effortless power for overtaking, can’t get much better power to economy balance than this car, BMW’s are chain driven so no timing belt service needed.

Purchase of Campervan is the only reason it is for sale, will miss the quality drive of this car, would be keeping if driveway was big enough but with a wife and kids who own a car each the space has become limited.

Minor faults to mention are the 50 pence sized ripple to the passenger door, remote locking has a slight fault, can lock with fob if holding it up by the WiFi Pod mounted at top rear of car on roof. Probably an easy fix, but not bothered me could even be the battery in fob, but both keys only lock the car in this way. Can obviously lock with key in door but I never do this. The parking sensor issue is one of the rear sensors another easy fix, but I can park ok without them but worth sorting I guess. I have been told the the compressor on the air suspension could do with replacement as it is the original & some times out bringing up a level suspension fault message. This goes off once you Re start the engine. Lastly a risk of higher emissions flags up intermittently then goes off. The car passed the emissions test no problem at the last Mot, and this could be the lambada sensor I’ve been told. None of these issues affect how the car drives, and they could be sorted out easily by a half competent diy car/BMW enthusiast. The car has never let me down, not started etc in around 15k mikes since my ownership. So I am being honest about a few little issues very common on a BMW E60/61 with the sensitive computer managed technology loaded to this great car.
