    How economical are the e39 530i auto/manual

    I'm always getting 600 miles to a tank which is really surprising for a 14 year old heavy 525d. It's had a new Bosch maf, been remapped and had egr blanked off so suppose that will help. Looking to get an E39 M5 next year as I will be doing a 30 mile round trip on country lanes when I move and prefer more smiles to the gallon.

    Cheers Mick, I live in Stoke but work in Uttoxeter. I parked up in Uttoxeter Tesco car park miles out the way and when I came out there was a silver 2003 E39 sport parked next to me. It had an E39 car club sticker in the window. Looked like an E39 mini meet

    Thanks man, I had the wheels refurbed specifically in Anthracite because I've seen the same wheels on E39's in black and silver. I love them but each to their own I guess

    in the best colour.... More pics to follow when I pick my exhaust mountings up. One has perished and the exhaust is hanging down. Unfortunately I am driving our dogs car in the meantime (206 SW Quicksilver).

    USA hire car with satnav already fitted?

    I took my HGV sat nav with supposed worldwide maps which didn't work, ended up stopping at the nearest Wal-Mart in Vegas and buying a TomTom for $80. 2000 miles driving around Vegas, San Fran and L.A. - best holiday ever.

    I don't mind it, sure I've seen it featured in Fast Car or Max Power in the past?
