  1. How Long Have You Owned Your E39?

    I have had my 2002 530 Touring for 13 years. She has 160.000 on the clock 100.000 are down to me. The NS wing needed replaced and the rear arches were showing rust. The Mrs thought it was time i changed to a newer car! Didn't happen new wing and all rust sorted out. I absolutely love this car! She looks as good as new now and I don't mean the Mrs!!

    My 530 manual Touring is on 160k. I have had her for 12 years. I did have to change a metal part that connects to the actual gears stick on top of the box. I can't remember what it was called now! Apart from that FSH and she has been brilliant.
