  1. Hi, I’m selling a set of genuine m5 style 65 wheels. Wider rears and refurbished in shadow chrome . There are are a few slight marks on the tears but nothing overly noticeable. Wheels are in very good condition overall and look stunning. £750 collection from Banbury Oxfordshire, or delivery could be arranged. Just a small note, due to the wheels being refurbished unfortunately the part numbers on the inside are now unreadable, but these are still very much the same wheels I purchased a year ago and the part numbers are as follows. Part No: 2228950, 2228960. Thanks.

    Thanks, I know it’s not the best time to be selling them but they take up a fair amount of space and I could do with freeing up some cash what with a trip to Canada looming The wheels are certainly cheap at £600 it took me ages to find a genuine set in the first place. I paid £850 and then had them refurbished as there were a few small marks that niggled me. I have dropped the price for the same reason, the wheels have some small marks on them I can only assume from when the tyres were removed (wish I’d had a closer look at them afterwards). So I figure whoever buys them will probably want them sorted.

    No problem I can see the confusion! I was going to just sell the rep set, hence that original post. But I decided that it was time to part with the 540 and after spending so much on the car I wanted to get as much money back as I could. And no I don’t get anywhere near to Southampton I’m afraid!

    I had a set of wheels on my car when I bought it that were replica rears and genuine fronts. I had the opportunity to buy a genuine set to replace them with which is this set. Ive since sold sold my car and want to sell the genuine set to recoup some of the money I spent. These are are genuine set. The replicas I had didn’t have the indent for the M badge below the center cap. Sorry for any confusion. Dan

    Hi It's sadly time to sell my 2002 540i sport touring in azure blue. The car runs and drives very well for the age and miliage and has been a joy to own. I have spent a small fortune over the two years I've owned it in maintenance a lot of major work has been carried out over the last 5000 miles including an entirely new coolant system, new cam chains and guides, new alternator and battery. New rear suspension airbags and carrier bushes, gear box service and upgraded bm54 amp. Mechanically the car should be good for a long time to come. Bodywork wise the panels are all straight, no dents or scratches, the front bumper is a genuine BMW e39 sport bumper and was replaced last year, it has fog lights fitted but no surrounds. There is however some rust around the front arches and the skirts at the rear wheels. Having this sorted was next on my list but unfortunately the I've run out of time and funds to get it sorted. Interior is in very good condition for its age and mileage. Black electric leather sport seats with driver side memory settings. Electric steering adjustment, widescreen mk4 nav with 2016 maps and speed cameras, 6 disc cd changer, parking sensors front and rear, cruise control. Automatic headlights and windscreen wipers. And dual zone aircon. The aircon Is currently not working due to a split in one of the pipes, easily repaired. There are also the standard dead pixels on the dash but they never bothered me enough to have fixed I would be looking around £3000, I'm not overly sure what the car is worth as there aren't many around so would obviously be open to any suggestions and offers. I think I've covered most of the details and have tried to be as honest as possible, any questions just ask on here or call me on 07535807721 car is located in Banbury Oxfordshire. Many thanks, Dan.

    Jacking points and sills are all fine, nice and solid. The car was up in the air yesterday so had a good look underneath. And there is a small amount of bubbling on the inner edge of the fuel cap area.

    No sorry, I've gone and got myself a 635d so have no need for another car.

    Thanks Ian, the lpg has saved me a small fortune traveling from Essex to Oxfordshire regularly, fully understand it's not everyone's cup of tea but 200 miles of v8 motoring at £30 is a joyous thing And yes it is very hilly round here!

    Thanks, I can't find many other 540 sport tourings for sale so imagine it's a bit of an acquired taste and could take a while to sell.

    Thanks mate, appreciate the feedback, it is a nice car.
  16. 2002 E39 540i Sport Touring for sale. 172k

    You could own the car and never use the gas it's an independent system. You can switch it off. But there really is no difference from running it on petrol.
  17. 2002 E39 540i Sport Touring for sale. 172k

    Yes has a 60 litre tank in the spare wheel bay for lpg, switches over to gas once warmed up. Very good system.

    Hi Jay I have a set that I'm looking to sell, two genuine M5 fronts and two replica rears, the reps have a slight buckle to them but i couldn't feel any vibration when they were on my 540. The genuine ones are perfect, all been re-furbished in Graphite but don't have tyres.
  20. I have always had a real passion for cars and apart from my first car I I'm quite content with my history so far but I'm sure many members on here can trump my list . It would be great to see what fellow petrol heads have owned so thought I would get the ball rolling with my list. So... My first car was a Honda Civic 1.4 tornado and the last FWD car I owned its quite embarrassing looking back at it! get a load of those wolfrace wheels

    Hi Afy I purchased these a little while back https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00JJ3ZFOA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I've not had any problems with them, pretty much plug and play with no errors or anything. Hope this helps Dan.

    the 328i didn't last long which brought me to my current 540i touring I had this with the RX8 for a little while but running a V8 and a Rotary was more expensive than running the M6 so part exchanged it in towards the girlfriends Nissan Juke Nismo RS
