    So today I went and looked at a private sellers 525D E60. I loved it inside and out and was confident in my decision until after the test drive I opened the bonnet and discovered an intermittent grinding sound!

    Hi all, I have a problem with my (usually) trusty 525d touring (187,000 miles, dubious quality of previous owners). It stalled out on me in very wet weather & wouldn't restart. Plenty of battery power but just a click-click or sometimes ugly rattle when I turned the key. Recovery guy put a...
