My third E39! :)

Recommended Posts

Ok sussed it!! 'Bout time!! :D Pics courtesy of the sellers advert.

 

It's not the prettiest car from the front, but it's an uber cruiser and damn fast when you boot it. I do still miss having an E39 to be honest, but this will tick some other boxes in the future for me.

Thanks Dan, it's not half bad!! There's a scuff on the front bumper, but it's on the trim insert where the parking sensors are so an easy sort and the alloys are in need of a refurb as a little bubbly. Other than that, it just needs a good detail - and an interior freshen up! It has auto boot opening on hydraulic rams but that's failed. Apparently a common issue with the pipes becoming porous and leaking fluid. Whilst there's no fluid sloshing about anywhere, you can smell hydraulic fluid in the car and especially when you open the boot.

 

The only other item needing attention is an occasional knock on 1st-2nd and 2nd-1st gear. Sadly it didn't happen on the test drive. I'm pretty certain it's the prop guibo - again a common issue it seems. So I've ordered one for replacement. That's an easy enough job, just a lot to remove to get to it, including the exhaust system.

 

The PO had it over 6 years and was only selling due to circumstances, he was gutted to see it go. It's certainly been well loved!

Why? 

For what reason do you think a cancer inducing fuel is good? 

Unless you own a pharmaceutical company that makes pills to aid with living with such a vile and cruel disease of cause....

in latvia

diesel 1.10

petrol 1.22

 

in lithuania even cheaper

 

How much in London nowadays?

 

Couple of years ago I went from Tallinn to Malaga with Saab 95 Petrol 2000

Starting from Germany -> Holland -> France -> I got royally screwed by petrol at 1.65 Euros, at most doing 750 km per tank :/

Never again!

is that true UK wants to tax diesels to death?

Yup; because it's shite and the bullshit they've been spewing for years about it's amazing economy and how clean it is, has ended up on their faces

 

Appears that countries in the Eastern Block are a bit more lax when it comes to this etc

 

Anyway; this isn't the right thread for this conversation, feel free to start a war on petrol vs diesel in a separate topic ;)
