  1. What a difference in advert and presentation.... When compared the the £55k E39 M5 in Lincoln...this seller knows how to do it. You could buy 3 of these and still have change left over for a Caribbean cruise... Lovely car this 550i, would want the surround to the start button changing though.... looks like someone with claws has been pushing it...

    E39 M5 on eBay

    Trying to get my head around the "Communication Package" without a mobile in the arm rest and a "BMW advanced loudspeaker system"... Wondering what that is..? Seems like the seller really doesn't have a clue... no pictures of the engine bay.. nothing of the boot, they could have tried to sell it properly if they are wanting £55k.... Maybe the widescreen monitor and facelift lights make it worth loads more....
  3. Done I wonder how many people will hit the button for the first question....
  4. Spotted yesterday afternoon at the Covid jab centre in Hereford yesterday afternoon... Long time since I've seen another E39 around...

    Green M5 on eBay

    Seems like a very average car to me - a lot of money for a Cat C 1999 car with a reasonably high mileage. I can't help feel that someone is looking for a sharp profit on this particular car... whoever thought the exhaust tips looked even ok must have been visually challenged. The after market stereo leaves a lot to be desired: And to leave it with known issues such as the faulty oil sensor and faulty ABS sensor stinks of a somewhat cavalier attitude to car maintenance rather than being what he describes as being "very well looked after"... I know the market for these cars is all over at the moment but this car feels like it needs a really good going over to see what lurks...
  7. 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...
  14. Emailed the seller to tell him to carry on smoking what he has been as he's clearly off his head...
  15. 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 ....
