    E39 M5 CAT C

    Hi guys Surely as nice as this m5 is a cat c is still not worth that kind of money. What do you guys think? https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201708318853749?sort=sponsored&make=BMW&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&postcode=b735bq&price-from=14000&radius=1501&model=M5&advertising-location=at_cars&page=1

    BMW 540i/6 Sport

    Completely agree the 540i/6 sport is one very rare car I had one a couple of years back and in some respects I preferred it to my m5. This car I went to see this morning just didn’t feel right hence why I walked away. The money was right to be fair at £5250 but the car just didn’t feel right to me. The colour was very nice.

    BMW 540i/6 Sport

    Hi guys Well had a nice drive into London this morning on the way back now. Didn’t buy the car there were a few things for me that didn’t stack up. The front kidney grill when I wen to open the bonnet nearly came out in my hand. The tool kit and CD player we all missing. It’s had paintwork at some stage and the inner front wheel arch covers were not put back in place with plastic covers. The rear number plate light was popping out. The fan in the engine bay wasn’t sitting nicely in the housing as they do. The underside was all wax oiled which I don’t mind on a car that looks like it’s been cared for. Pixels were out. The colour of the car was beautiful if anything it was too clean but this didn’t follow through to the inside of the car. The boot for example looked like it had just been to the rubbish tip. For me personally the car didn’t feel right I’ve had a fair few e39s now and I understand they are not new but when you’re asking top dollar for a car then at least get the little things sorted. Also I managed to get the trader down to £5250 over the phone very easily. Knocking a £1k off the asking price for a trader over the phone is usually very rare. Like I say the car just didn’t feel right for me so I walked away. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    BMW 540i/6 Sport

    Cheers mate just had a look on realoem and apparently the build date is 06/01. If I get it will need to talk to you about head unit upgrades won’t be able to keep it stock like the m5 [emoji1]

    BMW 540i/6 Sport

    That’s what I was think spec wise it’s quite basic but stuff like heated seats I know can be added and if I got it would go for an android system for it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi guys Going to look at this in the morning just wondering if anyone on here knows the car at all and your opinions on it. http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201709199456975 Thanks Jag Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    BMW E39 M5 Rod Bearing & Chain Guides

    Thanks guys I've been thinking about this for a while to be honest. The car is a keeper I won't be getting rid of it so I'm thinking that it's probably easier to spend the £3k now and at least I'll have the piece of mind that it's done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hi guys I'm thinking about getting my Rod Bearings, Chain Guides done on my m5. The car itself has done 86k and I have no issues whatsoever just looking at getting them done more for preventative measure. I spoke to Phil at CPC and he was saying that the cost of the work is roughly just over £3k and we will also look over the vanos while he was there even though I have no vanos issues. Is there anything else I should be getting done while this work is being carried out and for the people that have had this work done did you have any issues afterwards?

    E39 Prices What Should You Be Paying Realistcally

    That's the thing I want one that hasn't been modified. Don't mind paying extra for a decent example but again don't want to be paying some of the prices some dealers want which are a joke in my opinion. I've seen them for £7k plus which can't be right. I know they are decent cars if looked after properly but some prices are taking the mick a bit Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    E39 Prices What Should You Be Paying Realistcally

    You are right but I used it for a month and just found it started taking away the feeling you get when you just drive it on weekends if that makes any sense. I also found it a pain to get on with in heavy traffic Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    E39 Prices What Should You Be Paying Realistcally

    530 is a nice everyday driver as much as I love driving the m5 I just couldn't live with it as a daily. Manual would be nice but hard to get hold of with a decent spec Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    E39 Prices What Should You Be Paying Realistcally

    Cheers guys that's what I'm thinking £3k should realistically buy you a decent 530i sport Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hi guys I'm potentially on the look out for a nice 530i sport with a decent spec. I've had one before and have previously owned a 540i/6 sport and currently own a m5. For me the 530i is the fest for everyday use. Been looking around but the prices are all over the place and my question really is what should you be paying for a decent spec with reasonable miles on the clock.
