    E39 530i SE Auto - 2001 - 122000 miles - Spares/repair

    E39, when to call it a day?

    Same boat here.. 530D Touring in manual , love it but the jobs have crept up , not a lot of time and it doesn't stand still long , so much so I have garaged it at the minute as I don't know if I really do love it that much or just cut it loose ( out of MOT at the minute ) The Volvo V70 T5 seems to have taken its place but when I look at it it is still an attractive car

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    There is a bit of trim from BMW that clips around the bumper to 'fill' the space around your exhaust because its a single pipe . makes it look neater .. I will send you a pic of it

    Abandoned cars

    Call a local scrap boy ( just a local metals yard ) with a hi- ab and tell him you have lost keys etc and just wanted it lifted - loads will do it

    That's my point they are not selling but people live in hope I guess @E39mad.... that 328 touring sold on ebay for about 7 two weeks ago and OC Cars has bumped price up for putting some stripes in carpets

    Older BMW Prices going nuts!

    Looking at ebay just now some mental prices fro E30s and E34s .. even E36s are expensively priced E34s .. 520s .. 4995 , ropey looking 535i for 18000, 535i for 5995 .. and I am sure there is a Hartge import going about that's 49000!!!! E30s of 325i flavour are in 5 figures .. great if it happens but I fear most of these cars have been for sale for a long time ( or will be ) All classic car prices have taken a hike .. Ford RS Escorts are making ( and selling too ) for HUUUGGGE sums ...basket cases are starting over 5grand now ..... if only we knew then .....

    New Wheels fitted - Jury still out - opinions?

    Yes yes yes .. the gold with white is superb , I think its a great combination .. if it was good enough for the great Roberto Ravaglia then nothing else to say
