    540i/6DB reacted to Tesla in Sterling Grey E39 530 Sport Touring   
    Hi, pleased to still see this car getting the care it deserves, I was the previous owner to Sutts and a friend of mine and (ex?) forum members’ father owned before me. During my ownership I was e39 nuts and still have a big soft spot for them, if you ever want/need to know pre-sutts history or ever considering selling then give me a shout.
     
    Enjoy.

    Purchased from member sutts last week (also acquired from the forum by him), my 2nd E39 Touring although this one is in far better condition! Lots of paperwork and history came with it and it was obviously very well cared for in the past. Notable extras include auto lights, auto wipers, folding mirrors and auto a/c.

    540i/6DB got a reaction from BarryM in removing wires from fusebox ?   
    There are 2 little 'ears' on the metal holder that clips into little grooves in the plastic holder when it's pushed in.
     
    They are in effect one-way so carefully cutting into the fuseholder is the only way to remove them. If just you tug on the wire either that or the metal end will break rendering it useless.

    Thanks. A whack in the door released it. Still sticks but at least I know how to get it moving.

    Rear window motors can stick through lack of use. Try thumping the middle of the door card hard while prodding the switch a few times as this can free them off. 
     
    Rear wiper is likely to be broken wire(s) in the loom near the hinge. Front wiper clonk will be a worn out rack, not an easy fix as new are very difficult to source (poss. discontinued by BMW??) & good used one nearly as hard to find!

    I usually reserve judgement on these things until I have seen it in the flesh but so far probably Brilliant Red.

    If I recall the other was for sale some time back & it had low miles but there was something fishy about it??
     
    Also there was 1 Touring in DB as well. I always keep my eyes open for it but suspect it's long been turned into beer cans!  They would make a nice pair..........
