Default 535i Questions

Hello,

A friend is considering a 535i and wanted to know the following?

1. What is a good year to get a 535i that is mechanically solid? Are there any years he should steer away from?

2. What are common mechanical issues or problems he should be on a lookout in a 535i?

Lastly, any other advice or suggestions you can think of regarding getting a 535i will be very helpful!

Thanks in advance!

Other members can answer this question better than myself. My previous F10 535i (2012) was perfectly fine but I returned it at lease end with only 19k miles on the clock. I am currently on my 2015 F10 535i with just a couple more gadgets and only 1,800 miles on the clock. So far so good. What is your friend looking for? Your friend, if he/she wants a used 535i, should get a CPO (Certified Pre-owned) one or a 535i with warranty on it. That's all I can suggest from my narrow experience.

I bought a cpo 2013 535i x drive m sport with 35k miles on it. my fuel injector recently failed and caused the engine to give up on my way home, was in the shop for 2 weeks, new engine under warranty, when i got it back the check engine light never turned off and i took it back and they told me the high pressure fuel pump gave out. its currently still in the shop, going on a 10 days. im not sure if this will answer your question as i dont know anyone else having the same problems.

My 2010 E60 535i was probably my favorite car - that being said it needed some maintenance. The turbos (N54) went out at 70k and BMW replaced them under warranty. I don't know how old/new you're looking for but if it's a higher mileage car (80k+) make sure it's had some service done or be ready to do it - coils, water pump, that kind of stuff.

I bought 2102 535i CPO 2 years ago. Its been great so far, just did oil change and simple maintenance myself. I would say stay away from M or V8s, my friend has 550 and it's given him more problems. Best deals are at the end of the year, got mine on 12/31.
