2004 BMW 530d Sport 3.0 Diesel Touring Auto – Remapped to around 260bhp

18 posts in this topic

Sadly due to complete lack of use, change in personal circumstances, and now having moved I cannot justify keeping this anymore for a daily run of 8 miles a day.  I love driving it I just don't use it, and it’s not the right car for the use for what I am doing.  I've done just about 2,000 miles in her in over 6 months.  Bought of Digidick, forum member in January this year, and he in turn bought from another forum member!  I love the car but she’s not a keeper for me.

Since I've had it I have had to replace both front springs (Lesjöfors sports springs, from C3BMW, standard height for the car which has m-sport suspension) and fitted two front tyres (Conti Sport Contact 6) as the spring damaged one side so I replaced the pair with decent tyres as I had every intention of keeping her.  I've also had the front engine pulley and both belts replace, engine air filter as I always reckon it’s a good idea.  The total cost for all this has come in at just under £1k.  

 

Looking for offers around £4,750.

 

These are Digidicks photos but she still looks the same! except for the phone holder, which is a newer no-hole brodit one for iPhone 6/7.

 

Any q's please ask.

Taken from original advert, as nothing's changed apart from the above repairs!

Good luck with the sale buddy, she's was/is a beauty. Such a well sorted car, great spec and a real head turner with those 19's.

 

I can also help with any questions people might have.

Having bought Dicks E39 off him on the day he bought this E61 I can vouch for A) the 61 was a lovely car indeed and B.) any car Dick has owned has been very well looked after ;)

I know, having such a high spec motor and suffering passing pedestrians sniggering whilst struggling to park, it ain't easy :oops:.

 

But seriously, a very good desirable spec and price, hope you get it sold soon. Good luck ;).

Easy to park it is!  It's almost identical in size to the E39 Touring I had for 10-years!!  Wish I still had that now! :(

Not on here. Ex bmw guy near Andover.

 

Since we met my father in law is moving in as he can't look after himself so we've moved so now doing a short daily commute each day and no long journeys. it's not the car for the job, just a few miles each way in traffic. Just killing it so need something else ☹️

Ahh that's a shame mate. Did you get much interest, hope he didn't beat you up on the price?

some silly offers on ebay, more sensible one from autotrader advert. Insurance would be due tomorrow so have saved re-insuring it too.
