    540i Touring. Ideally Se auto

    Good question. It's in the bodyshop having a few niggly bits sorted plus new discs & pads all round, service, new timing chain tensioner etc. My intention was to run it for the remainder of the summer and store over winter, however everything is for sale at the right price... Its a 2003 Sport model with a good spec. Comfort Seats, working air-con, Glass Sunroof, Nav, Electric Tailgate etc. It owes me about £7k (purchase & current spend). C.

    540i Touring. Ideally Se auto

    Thanks and no probs. I couldn't let mine go for that unfortunately. Good luck with your search. I'm sure there are a couple on eBay currently which may fit the bill. C.

    540i Touring. Ideally Se auto

    Budget, mileage shelf, although maintenance record is probably just as important...? C.
  6. That's a nice looking wagon and looks in fine fettle. Undecided on rims... Is it my eyes or are the front bumper lower corners missing? C.
  7. Finished at £17k +6% buyers fee (£18020). C.

    Thanks. Could be an option if I can't find any with power folding. C.

    As per title in good condition. Not bothered on colour as they will be painted. Preferably electric folding. WHY. C.

    18" e39 Alloys...

    Looking for a staggered or square set of 18's in ideally the following styles: Style 32 (e60, e39, e38) Style 37 (e39) Style 69 (e39) Alpina Softline (e39) Used or refurbished considered. Happy to do a trade on a set of OEM 19" e60 Spiders if required. C.
  12. I sometimes forget I have it... however body done, engine in and running with just some cable tidying and exhaust to fabricate. Plan is to get it back in the autumn for interior fit and replace or renew trims as required. C.
  13. As a sum of parts it's probably about right at the £15k bid as of today. Looks great from a distance, however a fair bit of tidying required on the body which could soon mount up. Nice little project never the less. C.
