"The BMW 520d is a car that's going
to appeal equally strongly to business and private customers alike.
With low emissions, strong residual values, low servicing costs and
excellent economy, its one of those cars that once you've overcome
the upfront asking price, actually works out to be very affordable
to run." Enright explains how BMW has created a car that is quite
unique to its fleet, a car that is affordable but contains the
quality that you would expect from a BMW. He also gives a detailed
explanation of the many features found in the BMW 520d.
