BMW 528i (528) Sport Manual, FSH, Hi-spec - £1500 High Wycombe

Recommended Posts

2000 E39 528i Sport Manual for sale - with a nice collection of factory extras and unmodified.


Being married to a Canadian means that my lovely BMW needs to go in favour of something automatic. This has been a fantastic car to me, reliably taking me up and down the country whenever I've asked it.

It's a fairly rare manual version, specd by the previous owner's brother, bought by the previous owner then bought by me after he bought an E60 545i! It's a factory Sport model, meaning it comes with the M Sport wheels (alloy spare present with a good tyre) and bodykit (front/rear bumpers, sideskirts and boot lip spoiler, along with sport suspension and interior). The seats are the sport models which are really comfy and grippy, with all way adjustment and a adjustable knee rest. It has the nicer M Sport steering wheel with cruise/audio controls and the headlining and pillars are black.


Since purchasing it I have had lots of work done to it to keep it up to standard, including 2x services, a new alternator, new radiator and cooling system flush, new clutch and dual mass flywheel (still with 1yr warranty remaining on these), new lower arms and droplinks and new front and rear brakes. For the last MOT it needed a few new tyres so I replaced all 4 with Uniroyal Rainsports which have done about 1000 miles now. The car has a packed and full service history, showing it's wanted for nothing and not been neglected, including the original bill of sale from Oxford BMW in 2000 for a cost of about £30k! It came with a few nice and rare options such as the high OBC with extended business radio, intensive windscreen and headlight washing system, auto dimming interior and side mirrors and folding side mirrors. The manual gearbox makes it a lovely car to drive without robbing the car of it's economy that the auto box seems to on this model - 30mpg is easily achievable and it'll climb on a good run. The engine is quiet, powerful and torquey, not showing it's mileage at all. The new clutch and flywheel were fitted last year by Mr Clutch and still has a year of warranty remaining valid. The dashboard currently shows 5 green service lights and no check control errors. I fitted an aux in kit that works on the standard radio meaning the dashboard retains it's original look. All of the electric windows, mirrors and remote locking work, with two working remote radio keys present. The cruise control and climate control work as they should with some of the best air conditioning I've ever had on a car fitted.


I've also replaced the headlight lenses as they went a bit cloudy, please also note that a replacement BMW bonnet badge will be fitted by the time of sale! I also fitted a towbar to tow my small 'garden rubbish' trailer with electrics wired properly to a relay so no dashboard errors or lights not working when the trailer is plugged in. As the car is quite long and without parking sensors, I've fitted a small reversing camera that shows the rear bumper/towbar so you know when you're approaching something behind you and when to stop!


As the car is 18 years old it's not without it's little niggles, while I truly believe it doesn't drive like the mileage it's done I like to be totally honest about selling cars! There are a couple of small rust spots, one on the bottom of the boot and two underneath the boot which do not cause an MOT/structural issue but can be seen. I imagine they would cost a minimal amount to put right. The windscreen outer seal has broken up slightly (the windscreen does not leak as it's bonded to the car!) so a new owner may want to replace it.


Car is still in use, taxed and insured so a test drive would be welcomed if you are seriously considering purchasing. As with all private sales the car is sold as seem however will be sold in good faith that it will carry on for many many more miles. Any questions please call me (David) 07795202202. Payment will be accepted by cash or bank transfer only. Private plate will be removed before sale and an age related W registration will be fitted - this means it benefits from the cheaper tax band for a big car!

£1650 ono - car located in High Wycombe.
