Default Looking for a used BMW 525d / Mercedes E 280 CDI

Hi all,

I was hoping someone could help me find a sparingly used BMW 525d or a Mercedes E280 CDI. If someone knows of any relaible dealers who deal in these vehicles in the Delhi/Mumbai/Chennai/Hyderabad/Bangalore region, please do let me know.

I tried looking for an appropriate "used luxury cars" thread but could'nt find one. I'd really appreciate any feedback in this regard because the online resources for sourcing such a car are severely limited.

Cheers

I would look in Bangalore, the life time tax is high enough and chances of getting a refund from the original state is next to nothing

I think your best bet would be MB or BMW Pre-Owned (Not sure if BMW has set this up in India yet) as these two are relatively newer cars for India. Trying calling a few dealers directly to see what they have to offer.

If you are looking in kerala, u can tyr some dealers like chiriyath cars. Also, the pre owned section on the merc showroom should have some good ones.

These are going to be verrrry hard to find in the used car market, specially the 525d.

Why don't you go in for a new one instead, there wont be that much of a price diff either.
