Hello everyone, I***8217;ve always wanted to own a BMW and never have I had the opportunity until now. This has been the most stressful car shopping I have ever done. I am interested in a 2011-2014(528), 2011-2013(535), 2011-2013(740,750). My budget is only around 14-16K(I have 2017 Toyota Highlander) so can***8217;t spend a ton of money. I really need help making my decision easier. I am trying to targe something under 70K miles. My first concern is which model is by far the most expensive to maintain? I don***8217;t want to be in and out of the repair shop. It***8217;s really hard to decide between the 5 and 7 series. This will be a daily driver about 5-10 miles a day. Guys please I need all the tips I can get. I***8217;ve been watching YouTube videos trying to get as much info as possible. I***8217;m not very knowledgeable with cars whatsoever.

Im also considering a 2011-2013 550i. A particular 2011 750LI m sport package has caught my eye. 108,000 miles, Salvage title(due to blown engine) has paperwork for blown engine and just got a new engine from bmw and engine has about 2k on it and has a warranty for 2 years or 24k miles. They want $13500 for it. 108k miles on body but only 2k on engine. Should I stay away?

The 7 series will be the most expensive, in all regards.
But honestly, with that low and strict of a budget, a BMW is probably not a wise purchase.
The 528i will be closest, but any of these will require more money sooner than later.
