      Question Used BMW E60 530d

      I have decided to buy a used BMW E60 530d. I am aware of the possible risks I may have to endure on buying an old german car without warranty. I am from Tamil Nadu and have looked for cars all over India. Finally I have shortlisted 2 cars that meet my criteria but they are being quoted for weird prices. What would be the going price of the 530d that meets the following criteria:

      1)1st owner car run around 50k kms.

      2)2009-10 Highline variant with the updated i-drive.

      3)With company service and in excellent condition.

      It would be highly helpful if someone could suggest any good cars known to them.

      50,000 km seems very low for an 8 year old car and it looks like the car was only being used on very short trips like to the corner shop and to the local temple. This spells many cold starts and the engine running a lot under normal operating temperatures. This spells to more wear and tear.
      Another possibility is that car was a real runner and the owner has had the speedometer rewound. Connect a diagnostics reader to the car and check the stored mileage in the ECU. If they refuse, just walk away.

      The cold start scenario seems possible and I plan to get it only after an inspection at the service centre. Assuming the vehicle is in good condition, what is a fair price.

      I wont be able to give you the Indian prices but in Norway a fully equipped car and leather interior would go for about 40,000 dollars for a 4X4.

      Cost may differ in different states, you could definitely find a 2009 E60 @ approx 50kkm run in NCR/delhi area between 15 to 18L
