Found 19th May 2014
For anyone in the market for an Executive Saloon this is an incredible saving for this car.

The car is brand new and includes Road Tax, a 3 year manufacturer warranty, and free delivery anywhere in England.

UPDATE: This is back and even cheaper.

The M Sport is cheaper as well £33762.70 saving over £10k.

That's alot of car for £30k.

Seems very reasonable, great find.
Have some

Only if you have the 30K at the moment £100 is a lot for me.....

For those wanting to spend that though on a car, great deal. I'd get the M Sport one though if you're prepared to spend that much though. Somewhat nicer

We have a 530d M sport and love it. 110k miles and never had an issue.

The description forgot to mention you get your own lane on motorways with this car.

Nice car - but still looses another 8 or 9K in the first year!

Love the look of the Msports, absolutely hate the ride though. Too firm for everyday roads and that's coming from someone who used to run Spax (aka scaffold bar) suspension on his car back in the day. Around bumpy corners the BMW's are just too skittish for my liking. Softer suspension actually allows you to progress with more pace.

Always look on the bright side of life my friend, I'm sure you have your health and that means a hell of a lot more than money.
I do alright for myself but never take anything for granted in life, times are hard for people and you never know what's round the corner. Tomorrow I could lose everything and be living on the street.
Plenty second hand cars on the market, no need to buy a new one you lose to much money anyways.

This is why I come to HUKD, because I'm so broke I'm looking for the best deal on a BMW. o_O

The cheapest one year old 530d on Autotrader is £29,500. If you can find one for £22k then buy it.

Shame about the aftersales wouldnt buy another but everyone to their own.

In true HUKD car deal form.

For this money you could buy a second hand BMW 5 Series!

majority of the 5 series I see on the motorway are wreckless drivers switching lanes, undertaking, Totally puts me off buying one and stick to mercedes

Don't forget it looks like a sofa from this un-known brand. Better off with a Skoda.

Does this come with the optional indicator pack ... sadly lacking on so many BMW's out there oO

Is it you don't want people to tar you with the same brush or that you think a 5 Series will make you a worse driver?

Sadly I think small tools is fairly accurate in re: depreciation. I have a F10 and I assume the 1 year depreciation is inaccurate as they tend only to be sold by BMW Approved Used (at this age) who tend to operate a bit of a cartel. Have a look at what happens to prices after 2-3 yrs (trade prices will prob fall to ~ 16-18k so as a private seller you'll get less). As I said I wish depreciation was less as an owner myself but people should buy cars with their eyes wide open. Good price if you want a fast exec car though. New model prob won't be out for another ~ 2 years (although photos have already started appearing of prototypes)

MSport suspension is firm, but it's not that firm (I used to have Tein coilovers on my old Civic Type R, that was a hard ride!). It's certainly more supple than you'd find on many a modern hot hatch. That said actually some of the suspension stuff is dependant on the condition of the roads you drive on, in inner city places like Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and London the roads are in a dreadful state, and firm suspension plus low profile rubber is pretty uncomfortable.

All new cars lose 20% of there value once driven off the forecourt.

you can have the numpty comment of the day.. well done. How on earth can that be a valid reason to be put off a brand of car?

I got overtaken in a 20 zone outside a school by an ar$e of a driver in an S350 just last week. What does that make you?

I think smalltools is way off the mark. Unless you actually believe a 530d will lose 50% off it's value in 12 months.

BTW the £29,500 one I found wasn't even at a BMW dealer.

I don't think HUKD is just a site for broke people. My partner and I do quite well money wise, but we still like to save money on things. If you have money, what stops you looking for a good deal? When wealthy people buy car insurance do you not think they look for the best deal (as an example)?

Not ALL

Reliability and running costs aren't great

reliabilityindex.com/rel…/35

The reliability index above a is a true reflection of reliability based on warranty claims after the manufacturer's warranty so doesn't reflect the reliability in the first 3 years but is a true reflection of reliability unlike user surveys which are very inconsistant. If you want a dependable reliable car you are still far better off with japanese over european brands generally. It's is an average for the range so models featuring more sophisticated parts like automatic gearboxes are likely to be less reliable.

It's an "OK" price, the RRP on a volvo s60 D5 SE is less than £30k so you can get a powerful european saloon with a similar spec for cheaper.

BMW are on Watchdog annually. First it was the 18" alloys cracking that they wouldn't admit. Then it was a £10k fault with the 2L engines where they said "If the owner has always used approved BMW servicing we will discount it to £5k".

its called VAT

Any Quidco on this?

I was waiting for that. VAT has little to do with depreciation.

Actually that benefit has been gifted to Audi drivers now.

If you buy one of these be prepared to turn into a knob on roads and motorways to other drivers

I think that's what the question is implying

Cold, a KIA, Hyundai etc will be much cheaper

Wow, you save 9k, the car will most likely lose that value once you buy it.

for most readers here we are talking Resale value after a certain period of time. so there lose 20% (due to VAT) as soon as car driven off forecourt plus depreciaton dependent on age and the car

Haha good point. A Mercedes was smashed up at the side of the M60 a few weeks ago... after ploughing into the back of a row of traffic that could be seen a mile away.

I think that might put me off buying a Merc now seeing as though the brakes are crap and sitting behind the wheel of one appears to make your anticipation skills non-existent! :-)
