    Alpina B10 V8 n. 755

    This would be a perfect daily if the money was no object. V8 e39 with an auto box. She is a stunner. I hope you will change your mind as she deserves an attentive owner. Greg

    2001 BMW e39 525d manual £1250 - SOLD

    Thank you. Yes she proved herself and with 45mpg and over on motorway runs I cannot imagine a cruiser that would offer better quality for money! Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. The time has come to part ways with our trusted BMW. This pretty lady has been loved and during the last year or two I have replaced the following: - shock absorbers all around - springs all around - top mounts - front brake pads - richbrook mats - sh head unit - recovered the steering wheel - 4x15mm bilstein spacers - new extended bolts - various bulbs and other consumables - she was serviced approx 4K miles ago. She comes with a silver on black interior with sport steering wheel. sport cloth seats and glass sunroof. The previous owner fitted a short shifter which makes a great improvement in gear changes. Front and rear parking sensors, style 81 alloys and pretty much complete tool kit are both a plus. The light adjusters are broken so this will need to be looked at plus the paintwork is starting to show her age. In general she drives as nice as cars with a lot less mileage. I took her to Europe more times that I can remember and she has never failed me. Hence the mileage of 179k. She has been remaped and she pulls really well. I think I have a printout saying 217bhp. Originally I bought it off a forum member, sold it to my best friend who loved her. He then sold it onto another friend who then thankfully sold it back to me. I hope it will find its way to another forum member as it is a great car and really enjoyed owning her twice. I believe the price is very fair/quite low but this does not reflect the overall condition. I have purchased the replacement already this means she needs to go. £1250 Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. What about a nice e39? 525d, manual? It looks like I will be selling mine in a week or two. I've owned it twice, I sold it to a mate who then sold it to another mate before I bought it back. I bought it from a forum member in the first place so effectively I know last 4 owners and I have known this car for some years. Now it's a mortgage time... Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Breaking Various E39s

    I am looking for a steering pump and a head unit for a facelift 39 diesel. Can you help at all?

    SOLD: E39 15mm Eibach Spacers x 4

    Do you still have these? Thnaks
  9. Great stuff. I'm definitely interested. I'd rather an oem head unit myslef but this seems to be too good not to try. have you got any paperwork with it? thanks g.
  10. Why are you selling? I am after a head unit as mine seems to have lost the amplifier and only one side speakers work. Would it work with a facelift? How does the face compare to the OEM unit's face quality wise? Is the illumination colour same/similar to the OEM equipment? Finally, how difficult is it to fit? Thanks Greg

    RIP Donut

    I stumbled upon this as I popped in after a long while away from the forum. Very Sad. Rest in peace.
