    Anyone got one and able to give me a brief review? How do they run? How expensive are they too run, maintain etc?

    How much should I be looking at spending for one with 20-30k miles on it? 10k?

    Thanks

    What about if the car was built in 2009 would that affect this car?

    Wow. Thanks alot for telling me that probably just saved me a lot of hassle!

    What should I be looking to get for that price of £9-10k with 20-40k miles on it? BMW wise.
