  • My 520d is £1400 and just had a quote for a 645ci for £1300

  • 1400!!!! Bloody hell. I'm paying 550 atm and I'm still thinking is a bit expensive

  • The only real problem is u will be spending a shit load of cash on petrol a week

  • Google n62 coolant pipe and check it, if it was not changed, it will 100% fail. BMW engineering. If you got the budget then go for it, I had one and I regret selling it.

  • Good old BMW v8 timing chain tensioner issues as well. My local dealer have two that are being done.
