    Dilemma - Need Some Opinions

    Right, I went to the dealer to buy my self a new car, a BMW 2004 3 Series however he has now offered me a BMW 2004 5 Series for an extra £2.5K.

    Is this a good deal?

    They are both in good condition and have done simular amount of miles.

    What should I do?

    best bet is to check the insurance out on both first.plus dont think anyone can tell you if its a good deal without a price and mileage.

    Try & beat him down a bit more - at least another £500 off - then go with that if its got all the same bits & bobs!

    if you can afford it, go for the 5 series..

    go for a brand new range rover vogue.

    By 'common' I don't mean chav or anything like that. There are just loads of them round my area and nearly every Premier League footballer has one. I have my own style. I'm not a follower.

    I aggree that they are very popular - I bought a Grand Cherokee which is great, less money & way less common - sorry popular!:p
    I do aggree that they are safer though thats why we wanted one to be charriot for our little girl.
    What about an X3 (with body coloured bumpers obviously!)?

    Yeah, I think I would like a 5 Series. But is it worth the extra cash?

    It was a 520i and I think it was a 2.2L.

    Good luck insuring them

    Hi
    No one can say without seeing them both(condition).

    I have a 5 Series 523se (old shape).

    Excellent car for power and comfort ,so go for the 5 if possible.

    It's true what they say :- The ultimate driving machine. :thumbsup:

    Insurance £200, full comp but I am 60 Ha Ha.

    Good luck.

    just to let u know, i dont know what engine is in the 3 series, but the 5 will be very heavy on fuel. you will prob get about 24 around town.

    saying that, the 5 series has alot more equipment as standard. you get a screen and the idrive thing which is quite cool.

    plus the 5 series is a bigger car, and more classy I think.

    whats the engine and spec on the 3er?

    Yeah I know it will cost £££££s but I like to live a clasy lifestyle. I'm really looking forward to getting behind the wheel of my new whip, which ever series I get. I'm getting bored of my Ford Focus. :-(

    get petrol and not diesel and scream it down the m25

    3 Series - nah

    5 Series - nah

    the ford focus(starter car.) if you can do it why not. dont blame you for being bored of it i would be as well lol.

    he can get insurance on this, but tis going to cost you a bomb m8, on my bmw 323i @ 19 it was still a £1000, that was considering i had 3 cars previous and had made no claims, can you not go for something like a nice vw golf, or better still @ 17 whats wrong with an oyster card and a weekly bus pass

    my first bmw at the age of 19 cost me £1200 under a parents insurance. On my own it was about £3500 at the cheapest.

    My bmw was only a 316 Auto (1.9 engine) - and was insurance group 14. the 325i is probably insurance group 16/17 as is the 5 series.

    Are you really willing to throw away this sort of money to insure this car?

    Why dont you buy a BMW Mini? Fast, good looking, bmw technology etc. you will probably get a much better mini than bmw. with the money that is.

    I already have a Ford Focus and I feel it's time for a change.

    LOL @ going on the bus. I don't think I have been on a bus since I was 7.
