Maintenance cost around RM400 - RM500 per 10k millage
- Engine oil RM195 (castrol edge fully synt) x 2 bottle (It required 6.5L) = RM390

Total RM = RM480 for me only RM430
Road tax for 2.5L RM800++/year

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`
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..
