I am thinking of purchasing a second hand 2004 BMW 520 2.2 petrol for €5,500 with 91k on the clock. When I compare similar models same year for sale they are minimum €6k more expensive. Am I missing something or just getting a good deal? Just an opinion please.

Well, far be it from us to slag anyone’s automobile off, but that does smell a bit fishy. Have you done a history check on the automobile with Automobiletell.ie? Or checked out the mileage? That 2.2-litre engine can develop the most appalling overheating issues, which can banjax the entire cylinder head, so tread cautiously and try and find out how much work has (or hasn’t) been done.
