  1. Evening all Had a car in storage a while and it's become very dirty due to being uncovered. Soon to be adding another car in there and would like to keep them covered whilst indoors. Any recommendations on car covers please. eBay looks a bit hit and miss. Cheers

    This is proving quite hard. Seems the lower end of the market is awash with turds at dealers. Looked at a car today described as excellent condition. It was a shed at excellent condition money. Nice one!

    M5 purchase potentially

    It is indeed that car and I feel reassured presently. Mileage is a small concern but I want to enjoy the car not wrap it in cotton wool and store it. Hoping to finalize things later today

    Alex, get this on the Facebook E39 pages. It's well priced in my opinion. Great spec and a well sorted car. Should sell easily. Shame I can't stretch to buying it back and the M

    Yeah saw that. Looks like I should be ok judging by the price for that on eBay. It was at 6k yesterday which I thought was it's limit

    No not a daily! Keeping the trusty old 530d until it rots away. So that's another year maybe! It's 9k but has had a lot of work recently. Tensioner, clutch, suspension etc. But no internal engine work. I think it's well priced and I would be looking at keeping it a long time if possible but I'm no M5 expert. Agreed at lower miles and mint I wouldn't want to use it so pointless in many ways. Pic of said car

    Evening all. Similar in many ways to Alex's post, but looking for a little reassurance before I take the plunge. I have been thinking about an E39 M5 for some years and have "agreed" a purchase of one. No money has changed hands as yet. My only concern is the 187k miles on the clocks. It has a lot of history, current and previous owners have been enthusiasts and known in various M5 forums so I know it has been cared for. At least two others have said it's well priced and nothing to worry about. But it's a big deal for me so I still have a minor niggle! I guess the question is how many miles can an M5 really handle engine wise? Not looking at it like an investment as I want to enjoy the car. That said it'll be lower value in say 5 years time if I cover any sort of mileage as it'll have over 200k on it by then. Cheers

    Yeah s max also Nearly bought one but got a touran which space size was good. Just riddled with issues so I got rid before anymore lights came up on the dash. Will investigate the ford option. At my price point it'll take some finding one that has been looked after

    Ford galaxy is a good shout. Funny that one of my suppliers turned up in one today. Like a van inside. Massive with three big rear seats. Hold their money apparently. French stuff is a no from me.

    Evening all It has become apparent that the seat altea the wife uses is too small for us all at the weekends. Three kids. Two boys in the Kevin and Perry stage and a toddler. This presents me with a problem now the boys are larger than they once were car wise. The car isn't big enough! Options out there for £3k max? Don't want a thirsty exciting thing. The wife is driving it 9-5 as it were and I am trying to build the M5 fund. I've sort of asked this before but estates were suggested. None of which are wide enough so it looks like touran territory. They are riddled with issues though. Any suggestions welcome Cheers

    This was my first E39 and I regretted selling it as soon as it went! So much so I went and found another. Which I still have. But it's not as good as this one. Hmm.....
