This is an 24 year old BMW e39 523i, automatic from 1997 with 264000 km. on the clock, that I bought back in 2010. Here are some of the things that have been renewed and changed through the years.
The car has adjustable shocks on all fours(not anymor), chip tuned engine, m50 manifold, stainless steel headers and exhaust with X pipes, M5 front bumper, wings with integrated café grills, 18” wheels and Ac-Schnitzer components. Best af all are the Schnitcher mirrors instead oh the "Mickey Mouse" ones.
Inside it comes with mat silver interior trimmings (originally with wood trim), and a new thicker steering wheel ( have changed it for eaven newer one look at the pictures), a new GPS/combo, a new gear leveller, electrical rear blinds and electrical memory comfort seats.

Repainted in first quarter of 2018 after having 21 year old paint and some rust coming through around the rear bumper. The car was beautiful befor but now... golly smoke! ......

New set of B12 Bilstein and Eibach springs (2018) that turned out to be much harder than I expected and first turn soft around 60mph.and upward. 

Automatic Back up cam (2018)

Brighter LED head lights.(2016)

Got a new set of refurbished ( in UK) fuel jets and all funny ticking noice dissappeared from the engen..(2016)

Put in 6 new coils, just to be on the safe side.(2018)

New steering wheel with 2 stage airbag.(2018)

Open functional bezel around the fog lights (cools down the altenator).(2018)
Colour of the car is Aspen Silver (922) some time it looks like "purple pimp" color. 

Sins I had the car painted I have been without it for at least 2 months and they had to mend and repaint it at least 5 times and I'm not finished with them at all.

Best of all, no red lights and it runs like a bat out of hel from(1997 -2019) knock on wood.
