    Beige interior. Convince me!

    Liking the look of the contrast paddy. The car as a whole is good. Mechanically and cosmetically it's tidy and the choices out there are limited. But. I think I will pass and wait for the sterling grey one I would really like Or the red one!

    Apologies for the photos. That's a lot of beige Apologies also as this should probably be in general

    Hmm. I generally wear black jeans when not working. Have three kids also but they wouldn't spend much time in it, only for longer trips etc. Dyeing it is an option. I think it's the beige that stops it being bought by others as it's had a lot of work done and seems a decent example... Just that beige!!

    Evening all Seen a nice E39 touring for sale in topaz blue. But it's got a lot of beige going on inside. Always been a fan of black leather and carpets. Grey looks drab. Beige. I really don't know if I like it. Sounds odd but not sure I've ever seen one in the flesh. Marmite colour or a sign of me approaching 50!!?? The car otherwise is tidy. Hmmm

    E39, when to call it a day?

    An update. Mine is now on 227k with nothing on my list fixed. The rust is forming but it's been utterly dependable. With all its loyalty in mind I will be sorting some bits soon and it will get to another mot. What happens after that is anyone's guess! All that said i am always looking for it's replacement in touring form

    potential whats it worth post

    Potential interest from me. Would rather a touring but price and condition depending I could be swayed. Will keep an eye out for the ad

    Best to get a proper ad up. As said anything between a grand and three. Rust is the price driver

    Haha. It's not scrap material yet. But I do have another 530d sport that has rusty sills which I have yet to get round to dismantling. Severe lack of time!

    E39 jacking points question

    Do you take them off and leave them off then? Would make sense in many ways I guess as it can dry out

    E39 jacking points question

    Well if there are I can’t find any worth having. My last E39 was north of Liverpool. As for not salting the roads as soon as it gets anywhere near zero they are out. That said it’s not much above zero in Scotland in the summer so I guess they would salt more.

    I’ve asked for pics with the covers off. Car is in Scotland. I’m on the south coast!

    Unfortunately that isn’t an option for me to do. Distance is against me to view. I have asked the seller to remove the plastics and send me some pics but he said someone else was keen to see it this weekend so has gone a bit cold.

    E39 jacking points question

    Yeah I appreciate it’s hard to tell. It has almost 100k miles less on the car than mine and he’s done a lot of remedial mechanical work. I may be expecting too much to find an e39 that isn’t getting to this point rust wise unless I’m willing to spend big.

    Morning all Ive seen an e39 touring for sale. It’s pretty much ticked all the boxes apart from one picture I’ve been sent that’s made me hesitant. The guy has been really open and sent pics of everything I’ve asked for. Car is a well priced but 350 miles away so I want to be sure it’s worth the travel time. Seller stated it’s solid but...... opinions please! Would want to strike a deal today if I can be happy it’s not as scary as it looks!
