  1. Maybe it's different in NI but the last car I bought 2nd hand was in July 2019 and that V5 doesn't have the previous owner's details...

    General (private) fleet advice required

    Buy him a £500 shed off of ebay with a 12 month ticket and let him kill that.... No worry in regards to anyone else's car and allows you to keep the current fleet...

    E39 M5 on Collecting Cars.

    Funnily enough I found myself looking at these last year....prices seemed very reasonable and being the estate you have the option of the two seats facing backwards to turn it in to a 7 seater should the need arise... A step up from the C63 with a scarcity factor as well. Almost closed the deal on one... but decided to keep the funds and put them in to the pot as I'm looking to adding a decent size extension to the house, just waiting for planning permission to be granted... Currently turning the upstairs of my garage in to my office and then my current home office will become a fully self contained "garden room" to let out via Airbnb hopefully from next year.

    Removing the E39, M5 badge

    Maybe it's a regional thing, but I've not experienced any aggro or nuisance, occasionally, very occasionally I'll get a thumbs up and a smile usually due to the exhaust sound.

    E39 M5 on Collecting Cars.

    And it wasn't so long ago in the grand scheme of things... my current one was just over £7k in 2014 and was more than I really wanted to spend... these days you'd probably have to spend 50% more to find one that is running....

    Looks great... Agreed on the rear lights ^^^ also I wonder if the interior trim has been replaced as there is no TPMS button on the left of the steering wheel. With the low mileage and excellent looking paintwork that should command a hefty tag.

    Alternator issues

    I had to have a new alternator back in 2017, it came to £387, my indy sourced it but I don't know what he actually fitted, all it says on the invoice is "1 alternator 120 amp £387" I remember being chuffed to bits at the time as on Realoem they were coming up at $999...
  8. Emailed the seller to tell him to carry on smoking what he has been as he's clearly off his head...
  9. What is he smoking? "The car has not been modified in anyway and provides M5 type performance at a fraction of the cost whilst carrying 5 adults and luggage in complete luxury." Clearly never been in an M5.... vastly different performance...! Original mobile Phone? Clipped to the lower dashboard instead of being in the armrest. ... "M Sport aerodynamic package with front and rear spoilers inc front driving lights", okay give me a clue as to where the front and rear spoilers are. :) It's a nice enough car, but not £10ks nice ....
  10. ^^^ Same registration, so a hefty uplift in price....

    Car insurance renewal time

    I tend to use the website of furry Russian sounding critters, it keeps my details year on year and reminds me when my insurance is due... This year I can get fully comp on my E39 ///M5 for £163 but it's with £600 excess and a company I've never heard of (but they could be worth a punt) whereas for £231 I can get the same cover with £150 compulsory excess and that would be with the AA. There are several others in the same sort of ball park as well. I've yet to find a better deal over the last 7 or years when looking elsewhere.. Sergi seems to have a great offer each time I look... They even came up trumps when I needed to insure a 2nd car with 0 years NCD, they end up being £500 cheaper that Aviva who would mirror my existing NCD years...

    Driving License Expired

    ^^^ This... your licence won't have expired only the photo id card...you will still have a valid licence until 70... One good reason for hanging on to my paper one

    Capacitor Jump Starters

    Just to add, I picked up one similar to the one Dan recommended. I've used it twice without charging - 1st time on my shed - C200 Mercedes and then the second time on a little SLK200. Started both no problem. I've not needed it yet on the M5 yet though. Comes with a torch facility, red and blue flashing lights ! and will charge phones, tablets etc. The case it comes in is small enough to slip under a front seat but too big for the glove box, but will happily tuck away in the boot.... although as I found out... no good on the C200 Merc as that doesn't have an external boot release option.... LOL !!!
