My mates uncle is replacing his 1998 BMW 528i for a new 5 series but they are only offering him £1k as a trade in so he has offered it up to my mate (or me) for the same price as it's too good a car to let the dealer have for that sort of money.
Trade in seems pretty low I know, this is due to the car having a starship enterprise mileage of just under 240k. Very high but the car has been owned by him (co. director) from new and it's never wanted for anything. It's showing the expected wear and tear on the interior but the outside is pretty much immaculate. I would never have guessed the mileage when I saw it.
I don't know whether it's worth it to buy and sell on or maybe hang on to for a while although the potential running costs worry me. It's got a decent spec; silver in colour, SE, grey leather, manaul box etc.
Anyone got any thoughts? I know these can handle a big mileage but I'm sure plenty could go wrong at that sort of mileage.
