    E39 530D Breaking or Sale

    Old Faithfull for sale or Breaking I finally decided to part with Dirty D, the plan was to keep it for spares for Mari's 530D touring but i am planning on something else. It has a short mot remaining and was bumped on the rear passenger wing by a delivery lorry in work last January, it has not been subject to any insurance claim as the lorry could not be identified. The damage is limited to the back door lower rear wing and rear bumper. I continued to use the car until the passenger front spring failed. I will break the car if there is enough interest, however I would like it has go as a whole and I have priced the desirable parts accordingly which is less than the sum of its parts It has a very good engine and also has a chip module, it pulls like a train and does not smoke, the auto sports box works well and does not suffer with any hesitation issues, the electric sports seats are in good working condition, cruise works okay, privacy glass as standard, i was completing regular 250 mile trips to Southend twice a month and returning 48mpg. I replaced all the brakes 18 months ago, the two rear tyres are brand new 150 miles at most, the turbo was renewed 2 years ago approx 10k see the picture. there is also a set of new sports springs with the car. This is an original 530D SE with M specification to order from new. see list below, i think that these are reasonably priced and shows the value of the car should someone wish to break it. M-Sport Full interior, electric memory seats, door cards, and various trim (300) Fitted Carpets (30) Charcoal headlining (50) M-Sport multi function steering wheel (100) Good non faded rear parcel shelf (80) Privacy glass from factory (180) 17" M-Sport alloys x 5 (250) £50 each Xenon headlights (180) X 3 Rear Lights (50) M-Sport suspension with an additional set of new springs(200) Rear boot spoiler (100) 2.9 engine with replacement turbo (300) Automatic sports gearbox (150) I want £800 ono less than half the cost of all the parts listed above, perfect if you want to spec up your std E39 or just want a complete catalogue of spare parts For obvious reasons the car must be trailed away due to the broken front spring, however i am willing to replace the spring at a cost should it help, so that the car may be driven. In addition any of the larger items will need to be removed by the buyer Finally for any forum member if it helps guys I will trailer the car to the seven bridge because i appreciate its a pain in the arse to get down to me.

    Today the V8 had all new brakes, discs, calipers etc on the front end, new pads and shoes and rebuild the rear calipers then renewed the fluid. Started at first light and finished a 4pm with a few interruptions in between. Then if that wasn't enough it had a wash and polish with the new T-Cut colour restorer.

    Well i had a battle, because i was out of the 30 day return they did not want to help however they wrongly supplied me so the 30 days did not count as i didn't order wrongly ad the items were not defective so they eventually agree after several phone calls. Then they would not give me a returns slip to send the discs back! just a bad experience
