  1. 05 reg BMW E61 525ise

  2. 05 reg BMW E61 525ise

    Only bought this at Christmas for the wife to use mainly as the e39 we had was getting a bit long in the tooth, Anyway she doesn,t like it and has taken my 325Ci as her daily now, MOT until Dec 18 Stamped service book upto 106,000mls,most recent service was done before my purchasing it but book not stamped, New Battery and Cam Cover gasket done 3 weeks ago, Two new rear tyres last week,Fronts still have around 4mm, Headlights polished,results are better but not perfect, Alloys could do with a refurb on close up inspection, Rear Wiper sticking,checked wiring through tailgate hinges and all is ok,gave wiper arm a little assistance and it moves so guessing it could do with a new wiper motor, Disconnected auto tailgate as the water ingress in wheel well fried the control box,cleaned and dried everything and had no water ingress since,fitted standard struts but the O/S needs replacing. Top Tailgate glass opens and closes as it should. The car is clean and damage free inside. This car is no show pony but is straight and clean. I,ve not advertised it anywhere else,i,ve seen an X5 i may take a punt on but if it doesn,t sell i,ll maybe just keep it as it is only used to get me to and from work which is a commute of 30miles twice a week, The car is in Trentham,Stoke on Trent at weekends which is the best time to have a look as it sits in the works car park all week in Burton while i,m away. Price is £2200 ovno. Pics to follow.

  12. What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    Took mine to our works yard so i could get in the garage,cam cover gasket done,headlights polished and non-working rear wiper investigated,wiring all ok through hinges,i think the motor is seized as it moves when given light assistance with my finger.
