Still miss mine, would love to know whether it's still around (I suspect not)

 

A 530i SE (RX52NXE) which was traded in for a F30 328i. Better on paper in pretty much every respect but does it have that solid E39 'feel' ? Not a chance

Yeah, reckon it's been scrapped

 

It had plenty wrong with it although was still perfectly driveable. Would love to have kept it somewhere but no space and no time to work on it meant I needed something dependable so decided to let it go.

Although I was perfectly happy with the spec (a base SE,)it actually had everything I needed but was pretty worthless as it seems only sport models have a following,

Dont get me wrong, a F30 328i is a very capable car, far better technology wise than the E39 but just feels flimsy compared with the E39. I suspect a F10 5-series would be a better comparison though
