My head ruled this time, a 59k motor with less than 6k miles on the clock, loaded with goodies, at over 40% off of list.

That makes the depreciation journey "much more comfortable".

Thats a good price for what you get, there are a couple on BMW AUC similar at the moment.
I see its a heavy old car - doesnt look that much quicker to 60 than your old 330d? (I'm sure you had a E90 330d LCI?). How does the handling compare?
But has lots of toys nonetheless and must be a "proper" BMW experience.
