    1998 E39 540 Touring - Manual Box - Potential Value?

    Maybe but the box and engine have a fair value. If if I saw a 540i facelift sport touring manual I’d be very tempted to replace mine.

    Sunday bump. It will go for whatever it fetches or it goes in the skip. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    That's probably par for the course. Is it worth running it through an mot? Miles are sensible so might get a reasonable figure with an mot? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Depends on the rust but scrappy ones seem to fetch 2.5-3 or so on eBay So if half reasonable maybe more Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    E39 2003 525i Touring Fully Loaded Mint Low Miles

    I know where you're coming from I had a 523i se auto touring a few years back. It wasn't fast but went well enough and was a very nice place to cover some miles. My current 530d is a sport and manual touring and again could be faster but it averages 40mpg and does most things well. In my experience when you try to make a car something it wasn't designed to be the kind of get worse. It's like the manufacturer knows something about making cars [emoji23] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Personally I’d just enjoy it as it is.

    I don’t Think I’d worry about it being a jap import as the subtle diffences aside it looks a very tidy car and I bet with 35k it drives beautifully. I think the underseal thing thing relates to JDM cars and would assume bmw protected all cars the same being European built? in terms of upping the power you’ve not much options really. A chip might give a little but prob not worth it. Dropping a 3.0 in wouldgivr the best result but would spoil the usp of the car id think. Supercharger kit maybe?

    Welcome along though too. Does putting the vin in a decoder or realoem give any clues?

    Are the orange indicators and steering wheel not a clue too? Not sure that’s the normal se wheel?
