    Contemplating between these 2 rides. Can anyone recommend or give some input as to which is a better buy?

    Depends on your usage bro. the 3er is nimble, while the 5er is a cruiser. both hv the same engine (i think). the 5 is more spacious, while the 3 is adequate.

    I’ve checked out a few 528s, at dealerships, but still being cautious as the recorded mileage is too good to be true eg 2012 @ 80k

    If its a local car, you may check the mileage or service history at authorized service centres. Tell them you are buying the car. They normally verbalize u the actual recorded mileage.

    Bro I just bought a 2012 528i. Have a question regarding the factory fitted dash screen. Does it come with Bluetooth connectivity? How can I check this? Also, what are my options to get Apple car play for this car?
    Thanks

    Congrats bro!! If its a local unit, do update your ownership at the last authorized SC it was sent to.

    Bluetooth is mostly for phone connectivity. U may check the options using the VIN on VIN decoder sites. For Apple carplay, suggest you look at mudah. There are also some freelance who provide such retrofit, including reverse cams. Search for them on FB.

    All the best and enjoy your ride!!
