I owned BMW e60 523i 2.5L 2008 LCI..

Maintenance cost around RM400 - RM500 per 10k millage
- Engine oil RM195 (castrol edge fully synt) x 2 bottle (It required 6.5L) = RM390
- Oil filter RM40
- Labour =RM50(but i do it for my self so it free)
Total RM = RM480 for me only RM430

Road tax for 2.5L RM800++/year

Insurance RM 2k / year for 1st year
i`ve owned before 04 non lci model

this 1 are correct... i only service to specialist not authorize service center. cheaper alot. if u wanna hassle free. try make the car as stock as possible.. big wheels means put stress to suspension ... i`ve learn that during owning e60...

the only i afraid that time are the gearbox.. lucky am ok... but a friend of mine abit unfortunate ... need to change the gearbox.. an gearbox and Mechatronics with set you about 10k +-(2015) .. maybe more maybe less depends on workshop either overhaul or 2nd. and make sure ask about the warranty!!

when comparing between w211 e230 2.5 vs e60 523@525... bmw engine are kinda more alive.. but need to admit w211 are more comfortable to drive

hi line and m sport suspension are very different... my age and my size.. i prefer the hi line more... n hi line got tyre spare while m-sport model doesnt have.. they used run flat tyre` expensive` rclxub.gif

please bring your mechanic to check the car your interested to buy.it`s ok to pay duit kopi for your mechanic abit as it can save u alot in future. full document service history are very recommended..

Hi guys...i know this is old thread but cant see any new one..so google around mudah and seem the price of the e60 quite cheap for BMW..35k to 36k for 2006 - 2007 year.

My thought..is it worth buying?
Any one like to share major problem?

I have a car already...instead of buying 650cc bike..why not try this car..if major break down campak aje...
