    New to me 540i Touring

    Welcome along/back to E39 ownership. Needs some work but appears to be a good find.

    I'd be interested to see what he has for sale, E39 wise. The website does appear to be advertising the same stuff from a few years back. What contact do you use to get hold of him, email and phone -wise?

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Nice to see Dan's old 530 is still about! But what's with the turbines - winter wheels? Ooops - I quoted the wrong post - Doh!

    Gms cars

    I don't think he's in business anymore, certainly not to the extent of having circa 40 E39s in his back garden (aka "land") when I puchased the 540 four years ago. Took a look at his website yesterday and it still shows the same cars - I'm sure mine is in one of the photos! Nice guy, but slightly chaotic to deal with. When I picked up the car on the day of sale there was no invoice prepared (he hastily hand wrote one out) and had to hunt around for a battery!

    Gms cars

    Yes I did. PM me if you need to discuss further! His website doesn't seem to have changed in a long time and I thought he's ceased trading. However, when passing his house the other day (big place, lots of land) there were certainly a handful of Classic BMWs there. But, they may have just sat there for a couple of years now.

    I certainly did buy from GMS!

    540i Sport Saloon - M25 Tues (Jap Import)

    So it does - using a full size monitor helps! I wasn't refering to the 540 badging, rather 540 being part of the registration.

    A lot of great work there. Well done and keep it up.

    540i Sport Saloon - M25 Tues (Jap Import)

    I though that was my old one for a minute - can't quite make out the registration, but it doesn't appear to say "540".

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Glad to have been of service then!

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Blimey, when did I do that?!

    New 520d owner with problems already

    Welcome along and sorry to hear of the problem with the car so soon. If you've not done so already, copy your text into a new thread in the appropriate Tech Section, further down the home page. It will get much better coverage there and hopefully a few responses. Good luck.
  13. I think that maybe they suit the tourer better than the saloon. Plus you've got the colour right and ties in well with the rest of the car.
  14. You know what Dan - I'd keep it on 66s, it really does look great like that.

    My Dilemma

    I got a quote from WBAC for a car we wanted to trade in and tried them on the off chance. A very competitive price was offered but the figure plunged rapidly when I mentioned one minor wheel scuff and a few tiny marks from stone chips on an otherwise immaculate and low mileage vehicle. Not worth it unless you're desperate.
