I'd say it's at last £1500 over priced. It doesn't seem to have any options like e-seats or satnav. I would expect those for that price.

9 grand for 8 year old bmw.. Part exchange price of this car is £5750. So unless it has comms pack and little vodka fountain in the middle, in this colour and this trim, it ain't worth more than £7.5k retail.

That's horrendously overpriced.

In July 2007, I bought a July 2003, 1 owner, manual 2003 530d with 83k on the clock and more kit for £10700. 2001 models were going for about £8500-9000 at the time, so that is really really overpriced.

Fantastic cars though, and I loved the Manual. I got stunning economy.

The manual gearbox in the E39 is like driving a lorry, really notchy and imprecise, not what you would call nice in my opinion!

My opinion has been formed after having access to an E39 M5 ;)

EDIT: Maybe Pete's M5 is broken then, or I'm expecting too much? :)
