  1. E39 M5 Individual

    From what i've being told about 4starclassics is that their more of a car broker i.e they sell of behalf of a private clients, than an car dealer. Also as other posts have pointed out there seems to be a few issues with this E39 M5 which for the price their asking for it is shocking in my opinion, for that money i'd be expecting it to be mint with zero issues. Issues i've spotted with it are : Front & Rear bumpers are misaligned, What looks to be a small rust patch on the N/S/F wing, The edges of the doors also look to have paint chips, Front has some stonechips that have been touched up and other stonechips which haven't. Mismatched tyres Front to Rear, The bumper & door trim also looks to have faded (Looks like they've covered it in trim restorer for the pictures) N/S/R door trim look to have a stonechip, Interior armrest handle scratched, Coolant expansion tank discoloured, Inner arch lining bolts are rusted, Brake discs look to be in need of replacement (No doubt the pads would need replacing aswell), Brake calipers are in bad condition (Heavily rusted), Lower drivers seat trim is scratched, And one of my pet hates - its got rusty wheel bolts/nuts. Also in my opinion it hasn't got a best spec either as its missing : Full extended leather option, Alcantara roof lining option, Which for the price they want i'd want the above options.
  2. I have thought about getting a plate for it mate but both the ones i wanted for it (A540 BMW / A540 DOG) aren't / weren't available so i dunno what type of plate i'd want for it plus some of prices people want for plates is .
  3. Update : Brought another set of BBS CK Air II's (Yes i now own two sets of the same wheels) - This set will be having the centers powdered coated either BBS Motorsport Gold with Red center caps or a dark Anthracite colour with Black center caps, I've not 100% made up my mind yet.
  4. My 1st E39 wooohoooo

  5. Piper's E61 520d Touring

    @Piper - You might want to add Comfort seat retrofit on your list of plans. Other than it not coming with the Comfort seats that doesn't look bad at all, Looks like a good buy. I take it the N47 lump doesn't have swirl flaps fitted to it?
  6. E39 530D

    I've also seen this, as most people above have said, the bidding looks a little suspect and considering its nearly up to £7500 has me wondering what the reserve has been set at. Is it worth it, not to me its not but it might be to someone out there, you just never know. One thing i would say is that if someone carried out a few retrofits / upgrades to it then it could be made into a very nice E39. I just doubt that if someone does pay say 8K for it that they'll then want to start spending money on parts for retrofits / upgrades. Anyways added it to my ebay watch list and will be keeping an eye on it for : 1 - At what price does the reserve get matched, if it does get matched at all. 2 - What price it sells for or doesn't sell for, 3 - or if it gets removed before the auction ends.

    Hi Chris, Sorry to hear you've left the E39 community, Would be interested to hear your thoughts on how the E61 compares to the E39. As Dennis said above interested to see what retrofits / upgrades you perform to the E61. All the best buddy
