    What's the price on the Recaro's? Fully working, leather good etc? C.

    Rather nice E39 530 Sport Manual

    Rare manual and looks great in Slate with Mint. Service History is hit and miss but with a little haggling that would be a good buy. C.
  3. They'd be pricey for a staggered setup IMO, so a square set of 8's will definitely struggle at any price into 4 figures. Unfortunately for you turbines (Style 20) are the more sought after wheel over throwing stars (Style 21). The only real way of determining the market price would be to ebay them auction style and maybe set a reserve if necessary. C.

    2002 E39 540I Auto Sport

    They may seem as if they make yours look good value, however the asking prices are just that "asking price". The fact they are not selling should help you with your asking price. C.

    2001 Facelift in Black/Black for £4.4k: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2001-BMW-E39-540i-Sport-Auto-4-4L-V8-167-000-FSH-Genuine-18-M-Parralel-MOT/223288013715?hash=item33fd00b393:g:N40AAOSwwj5b1gYx:rk:11:pf:0 2003 Facelift in Black/Champagne for £5.4k: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2003-03-BMW-5-SERIES-4-4-540I-SPORT-4DR/223114323074?hash=item33f2a66482:g:qTkAAOSwQf9bftdj:rk:12:pf:0 Both been around for a while and the earlier car has had the cooling system maintained/replaced. Cooling systems, auto box and rust are the e39's achilles heel and there's an awful lot of alternative/good cars out there for £5-6k. You may like the Grey Leather but most potential buyers will not. All i'm saying is be reasonable with the price and it will find a new owner fairly quickly. GLWS. C.

    Looks a nice motor, however 100k+ mileage, dull as dishwater leather and no wheels is not exactly selling the car at the inflated asking price. Shorten your advert, include some wheels and be realistic with the price and you have a good chance of selling within the next six months! C.

    E34 m5 on eBay

    Great potential and nice spec although the colour kills it for me. The car would need a full re-paint to look mint and then keeping it clean if regularly used would be a royal PITA. Diamond Schwartz Metallic is THE Black on 80's & 90's BMW's. It's more of a Graphite Grey which is heaps easier to maintain and still looks mega when clean or dirty. C.

    Classic 7 Series

    Smart looking 7... although wheels are bloody awful! C.

    E39 530i - 55k miles

    Got to agree... They're nicknamed "ditch finders" for a reason. From my own experience, the difference in a spirited drive on crap rubber and quality rubber is the difference between fearing for my life and enjoyment. That said, factor in a new set of boots and offer accordingly as some owners haven't the faintest clue when buying such things! C.

    Not on an e34. I've had two e39's and both had Isofix. C.
