    E39 new seats?

    Coming up to two years now. It was a bit of a journey for the first year, mostly due to a combination of the low mileage and two years of storage after arriving from Japan - various gaskets springing leaks here and there, plus other miscellaneous servicing needs. Still, it's 100% sorted now. Keep us updated on the progress of yours.

    E39 new seats?

    Hi James, in answer to your question I have no idea but someone who knows will be along. However I would suspect that the required wiring might be there. And that's a lovely looking 530. Have you had it long?

    E39 Holey Crap that's not good!

    That's a sad decision. Selling whole or breaking?

    E39 530 Touring - new wheels

    I would probably have kept the 66s that the 540 came with had they been 18s and seemed to be the 'wheel of choice' for the Japanese market. They're a good looking wheel style, but be it a tourer or saloon, 18s just look 'right' on an E39 without going OTT.

    Mind you, my previous E39 was an SE, but sat on M suspension from the factory...

    Brilliant reg number

    The other day I saw PAW 50D (poor sod) on an old nail of a Ford something or other. And the best for a long while, a local plumber has P005 TOP arranged to read POO STOP....

    I know it's all coming to us within the next few years, but I'll stick with the 540 for the moment....

    E39 M5 Values - Polarising subject

    Even if I keep it for another five years (which will be the absolute maximum and governed by retirement) and did, say, an average of 300 miles per month, that would still only be 58,500 miles ish at 24 years old. If it's kept well maintained (which it will be) and in the condition it is now, it certainly won't be worth any less than it is today, whatever that figure might be. Right, I'm popping out for a drive!
