Excellent cruiser. 2.0d pulls very well considering the size of the car and the economy is excellent. The use of technology is very impressive. I find the satnav link to google maps invaluable. Overall i have been very impressed with this car.

I purchased my GT eleven months after first registration so is one of the first ones made - does not have the latest additions like DAB radio. The SATNAV needs upgrading but haven't figured out how to do it. The car is easy to drive - point and press. I was quite happy with the car until the last eighteen months when this car has started costing me a lot of money. I am the sole driver and the car has rarely had a rear seat passenger. The first significant cost was when I opened my car and the rear o/s electric window went down by itself. I push the button for it to go back up but to no avail even though I could hear the motor turning. In short took it to the garage and I had to have the cradle replaced to the tune of £360. About five weeks later the same thing happened on the rear n/s window which I had to replace to the tune of £360. No one sits in the rear of my car. I really dislike the run flat tyres, I have had a quite a few changed at £270 a piece. I have sought advice about replacing them and have been advised against changing them for anything other than the run flats. I've had a massive oil leak which needed a 'head' of sorts changing. That was done at a great cost This week I was informed I need to replace at least one of the electrical spark plug, the head where these plugs go into. I am now starting to think time to change this car. Not sure I want another BMW because I feel BMW give their customers a very raw deal but I'm not sure what to replace it with. I previously had a 2008 Z4 roadster which was great but I needed a larger car for work.

I bought this car a year ago with 52K on the clock, the main reason was to tow a new caravan and I couldn't afford a BMW 5 Series Touring. The car had a full service history and was full loaded with every toy possible except the most important one: the rear camera. I contacted BMW about a tow bar to be told don't really recommend towing caravans with this car, strange as they show the towing weights in the handbook - maybe it's an image thing. The price for parts only was £1,800 plus labour, bemused I asked for a break down to be told I would need to upgrade the cooling system along with adding a bit of metal on the back. I bought one from my local fitter for £400 and guess what it's fine, doesn't overheat and pulls like a train. One issue so far N/S rear suspension air bag split and deflated still got me home some 60 miles. BMW quoted £800 to repair, went on BMWLAND where another owner had document the issue, I bought the unit direct from Germany £179 and fitted it in under an hour with 2 jacks one flat end screw driver and a 10m socket. It is a common problem with all BMW air suspension especially on the N/S due to rubbish from the kerbside. This is a lovely car to drive returning 36mpg and 24 towing. Would I pay £60k new? NO way, but for £18K what more could you want other than a rear camera. You do have to watch the rear tyres on 19", there was problems with the original tyres but Pirelli have no issues with theirs.

Fantastic fast family state, with generous room for the whole family, good performance and economy for the engine size, plus segment leading low emissions. The car is let down by run-flat tyres; they increase the cost of ownership, plus spoil the ride.

Very poor reliability for a premium car. Very poor dealer service. No engine temperature gauge, poor indicator control, extremely poor climate control, and take ages (20 miles) to produce hot air in the winter. Excessive fuel consumption after spark plug replacement by main bmw dealer. No electrical socket in front if you don't opt for smoker's pack, and dealer did not warn about this. Dunlop tyres needed replacement after 18,000 miles.

Superbly comfortable, raised ride height makes entry/exit easy for older people and also gives better visibility in traffic. Small rear window makes reversing more difficult, but rear camera helps. Huge amount of cabin space due to vehicle being built on 7 series platform plenty of rear seat legroom even with tall driver, adjustable rear seats a bonus for rear passengers. Handling acceptable for such a large car and ride is so comfortable. The only thing I can fault it on is fuel consumption which never gets anywhere near BMW claimed figures; around 33 mpg for local driving and motorway cruising at 74mph only gives up to about 38mpg well short of the claimed 53mpg, whereas the 520d saloon I previously owned claimed 61 mpg and regularly gave 54mpg on similar motorway journeys. When I tackled BMW about this car reaching only 71% of claimed figure wheareas the 520d saloon achieved 88.5% of the claimed figure they waffled and when I told them that as a professional engineer I considered their response to be waffle, the matter was referred to head office who also failed to give any sort of satisfactory answer as to the reason for the disparity. That is my only real complaint if they claimed 45mpg under test conditions I feel that they would be being honest, but 53mpg is pure fantasy, or maybe VW type testing? The car has been completely reliable and is a joy to drive though I would have hoped for the genuine fuel consumption to be in the low 40's instead of the high 30's which everyone else seems to achieve. At the end of a 300 mile journey I always feel as fresh as when just driving to the local shops, the panoramic sunroof is also a bonus. Another small gripe is that is nowhere to store my skinny spare wheel kit which fits under the boot floor in a 5 series saloon, even with runflats, I prefer to change a puncture rather than driving many miles on the sidewalls of a deflated tyre.

The car has not had any mechanical faults but has produced excessive rear tyre wear of a potentially lethal nature. This is apparently due partly to run flat tyres and majorly to incorrect chassis geometry settings.
Running Cost

3 out of 5

The rear tyres has to be replaced at 17000 miles. They were still well within general MOT legal requirements but had worn down to the canvas on the inner section of both rear tyres, that section being only about 8mm of whole tyre width or less than 4% of the width. I had to buy replacements from a BMW main dealer as they had not been released for general purchase at a cost of over Ł800.

Not quite perfect but a superb car which exceeds expectations and is fantastic value in 520d. The new 8 speed auto is fantastic and the 2.0d feels much bigger than its size. Average economy at 40mpg is not as good as advertised, but sill excellent for this size of car.

I bought my car at the end of last year(2014) I bought it with around 30,000 miles. This was above average for a 2 year old car. Recently the suspension springs broke. I took my car to my local BMW dealer and was provided With a bill of £450 to replace and fit the part. BMW parts have always been expensive but this was rather too expensive.

I've had several problems with the car in the last 12 months. I needed 4 new tyres and 2 rear brake pads. This came to a total cost of £1300 at my local BMW dealer. The suspension springs cost £450. Replacing BMW parts is rather expensive. I didn't expect to spend this much on my car in the 12 months of ownership especially after spending around £22k on the vehicle 12 months ago!

This is second BMW 5 series. The car itself is comfortable and room and a nice drive. It will probably be my last. There was a problem with back door soon after I bought it. It would open on its own. BMW corrected problem electrical fault. Airbags in both rear suspension gone, at £400 each plus labour within a few months of each other. Funny just after 4 years and 63,000 miles. BMW dealer where I bought it said pot holes do that to it. I have not encountered that many pot holes. Last car had a problem with fumes from tank into that car. The customer care is disgraceful from BMW. They can keep their biscuits and choices of coffee and provide helpful less arrogant employees. Our other car Jaguar and before that a Mercedes. We never had any trouble with either of those. And customer care superior. I will be taking my money elsewhere next time. A company is only as good as its product and the people who work for them.

One of the best used car i have every bought and i would buy the same model again if the price is right. the ride and handling is just great and the built quality is second to none. It is just a great car to own and and a wonderful car to drive.

Dissapointing and very costly to run. Needlessly over complicated computer systems require constant attention or regular ignoring on my part.

This review is based on the car and how comfortable this car feels for very tall people. Firstly this is a very big car. It's the first car I have owned that actually fitted me. I'm 2 metres tall and can fit passengers in behind me comfortably with my seat fully back. I step comfortably into the car without dropping down a long way into my seat, I just seem to step in. I can keep my back nice and straight with absolutely no slouching as I have stacks of headroom. Masses of adjustment in the steering wheel means loads more kneeroom and the steering wheel cleverly moves out of my way when I'm about to leave the vehicle. The tailgate is so huge that it also has to lift up a long way (this is adjustable on the iDrive) means I don't hit my head on the bottom as I lean in. Changing the subject, I removed the terrible noisey, judder-causing runflat tyres that were taking so much away from the ride quality. A life long friend who is a tyre expert at protyre told me it was okay as long as I used a firm-walled tyre. The Falken tyre Azenis (453) were the ones to go for. He was right... My God, what a difference!! They have turned this car into an absolute dream to drive. Quieter, more grippy in the wet, glides over bumps and the car is now complete. I put a can of tyre weld in the boot and if I got a puncture I'd phone for breakdown recovery anyway. This car is smooth, extremely quick, pure luxury, loving the panoramic sunroof. The higher seating position feels great looking down at most vehicles and I feel safer. Frameless doors, light up door handles, xenon lights with bright bluey double ringed halo look mean. Top quality leather heated seats. DVD player, music hard drive to add music from your CDs, it's like having a multi changer that can hold hundreds of CDs. Cockpit that lights up ... well like a cockpit .. In a jumbo jet! Adjustable rear seats. Parcel shelf stowage compartment. Massive rear stripy led rear lights that look the absolute business! If you are tall and want pure luxury and comfort without compromising other areas of the car then go for the BMW 5 Series GT. If you are not so tall go for it anyway it's the best car I've ever owned.

Brilliant except for awful ru flat tyres. 245 40 18 is too low profile for a comfortable ride a 45/50 profile would be infinitely better. Also if 17in rims snow chains can be fitted. Only fault was replacing run flat tyres for proper ones!

My e60 bmw meets all of my needs and is a fantastic car to own and drive. The quality of the car meets all my expectations that you would expect from the bmw marque and it doesn't disappoint. I plan to get the f10 5 series in the not to distance future.
