    Great minds think alike. I too bought an Aldi charger fir it’s trickle feature and I too had a stick on reg. plate on the front of my old 530d. Lovely car and I’m well jealous of your scissors lift.

    E39 #8, I bought another one

    •manual 525d se. •2002. •schwarz II I think this is aka “Jet Black 668” •cloth interior. •digital climate control •cruise control •mfsw •pdc •mouse droppings in glove box need two front wings replacing. also rust bubbles around boot keyhole. plans are to get it back to looking like a fresh black cruiser. not sure if I’ll bother with Msport bumpers or not. It’s been done to death. Maybe. We’ll see. Don’t want to spend too much money on it.

    E39 #8, I bought another one

    Got the drivers wing on and rattle canned it for the time being. Good ol’ halfrauds. Came out ok. Might get the front end sprayed eventually. A lot of scratches on the bonnet and bumper. And it looks like the passenger wing is in need of replacing too.

    E39 #8, I bought another one

    HaHa. No. I have had 8 since 2006. Every time I sell one. A couple of months later. I say. Wait. I miss my e39. And I buy another. The only reason I sell them is because of the road tax here in Ireland. €1080 for 12 months on a 2.5litre. And a massive €1494 for 12 months for a 3.0litre.

    E39 #8, I bought another one

    So I picked up a free e39 drivers wing. And inner arch liner. needs a little rust remedy and obviously respraying black. Hopefully not too much fettling the inner wing to make it fit nicely.

    This tool is a must if doing those bushes. I was lucky enough to buy one second hand here in Ireland. And used it last year. Made life so much easier.

    Great thread this. Hadn’t checked it in a while. Great to see the old girl still going strong. Fair play to you for keeping her in tip top nick.

    2002 E39 2L Petrol

    Looks good. Nice to see an Irish e39 saved. It will be a rare sight on the road. They’re getting scarce now. Sadly Just starting breaking my own. Bloody tax.
