BMW newbie here!
Hello everyone, I'm new here and I'm interested in buying my first BMW in the not too far future. I'm currently interested in the E60 523i/525i. I saw one with what I assume was a M sport package and it caught my eyes. I would like help in the best places to look for a good 2nd hand and any other useful information like what to look for when getting one, the kind of maintenance items to proactively take care off and any other such informative bits and advice. Thanks

I saw that most people prefer the diesel variants of these models under the 5 subforum but as a person coming from a Subaru, I'd like an NA model hence the 523i/525i (even though they're less economic than the diesels.

That's the exact spec that did it for me, with the black wheels. It looks so good! Know the price range of those nowadays? Been scrolling through the for sale subforum and can't seem to find them.
