2007 BMW 5 Series LCI 535D M-Sport | £9,250

2007 LCI BMW 535D M-Sport

Local car with low mileage and only 3 previous owners, I have owned this car for just over 2 years and I honestly can’t fault it, it ticks a lot of boxes as it looks, drives and handles very well, has more engine power than you should ever need and will produce 35mpg on short runs and 50mpg on a motorway drive 

We are moving house less than 5mins from where I work so I can’t justify a Diesel car for those short journeys hence the for sale ad 

Bodywork:
Excellent condition, the car had a full paint correction detail by Finer Details in Bangor last year and has been cleaned and waxed regularly since 

Standard Features:

Adaptive Xenon headlights 
Widescreen SatNav
Hands free 
Cruise control
Aux audio input 
Heated black leather
Front and rear parking sensors
Swartz black interior trim 
Factory privacy glass

Recent Upgrades:

Westfalia detachable tow bar with cover 

XHP OTS transmission software, includes: gear indicator display, revised sift points, smoother gear changes, clutch pressures adapted to speed up shifting 

Engine software by AP-Performance in Galway, 5 hours spent on the Dyno optimising A/F ratios to produce a clean smooth power curve at 360hp and 533ft.lbs of torque.  Healthy DPF system still in place 

New OEM Sachs dampers on all 4 corner with H&R springs for a comfortable drive and a subtle drop in height 

Genuine BMW M5 wheels finished in Gloss black, ceramic coated with nearly new Goodyear Eagle tyres in the rear and mid range tyres up front with plenty of tread 

Maintenance:

Thorough preventative maintenance schedule with the following work completed very recently:

 All front control arms and drop links changed for Meyle-HD with 5 year warranty, covered less than 1k miles 

Gearbox fluid and sump with filter changed with genuine ZF parts and fluid 

Rear diff fluid change 

Genuine Turbo oil feed and return lines replaced with new gaskets 

All engine aux belts, tensioners and idlers replaced including water pump 

All vacuum lines replaced with high temperature silicone hose 

Swirl flap blanks installed with new gaskets, intake manifold was very clean inside 

All 6 glow plugs replaced and genuine glow plug controller installed 

New drilled front discs and pads 
Both rear brake calipers replaced with new discs and pads also, one was sticking very slightly so I replaced both

I have covered approx 12k miles in the past 2 years and the engine oil has been changed 3 times with genuine Castrol fully synthetic 0w30 each time 




Proper pictures of the car to follow when I get a chance to clean and photograph. 

The car has zero faults and I think it would be hard to find one as good, last of the proper twin turbo BMW Diesel engines without timing chain problems. Thousands spent on this car and it should need nothing for a long time
