    E39 528i SE or 530i Sport

    Hi all, back to the fold.... Possibly interested in what's out there. Only really interested if it's a 530i Sport or 528i SE or Sport. Manual/Auto doesn't matter. I'm in Dorset, don't care about mileage. After decent history and good bodywork. Cheers Colin.

    That rust thing...

    I spent £2500 on fixing rust on my two E39's. Cut out and weld new metal, it's the only way.

    Thinking of selling my 535 se

    This is coming in £600 cheaper to insure than an E39 530i Sport.. any more pics?

    BMW 540i/6 Sport

    It's at least £2k overpriced!

    E39 525 M Sport - Was There Such a Thing?

    There are no M Sport E39's.
  6. Crikey, that's a lot of rust. I'd be looking elsewhere if I were you.

    528I Autobox Help

    A full rebuild is less than £1500 nowadays.
  8. Jumping from the battery was a bad idea, you should use the terminals under the bonnet.

    19-21 around town, 28-32 on a run. I had 35 mpg out of my old 530i before and 40 out of the 528i, but it was very boring.

    Thank you, yes I have tried everything, to the point of being a bit fed up of it! Looking to get an actual 25 plus year old classic now so I can get reasonable insurance, no one can quote me reasonably in this.

    2001 E39 530i Sport auto £2200 SOLD

    NOW SOLD E39 BMW 530i Titanium Metallic Silver 113600 miles Fully stamped history MOT Feb 2018 I've only just purchased this car, unfortunately I (stupidly) did not realise that I cannot use my no claims discount on two cars (already have a family car) therefore making this one super expensive for me to insure, even at my age. The car is in overall great condition. It has a fully stamped history and has had a lot of preventive maintenance. It's had a refurbished gearbox and new radiator and 4 Dunlop Tyres purchased in December 2016 that have covered less than 1000 miles. The bodywork has minor marks commensurate with it's age but nothing out of the ordinary. Almost everything's works perfectly. There are a couple of faults that I am aware of: The memo button on the radio is loose. The front cup holders do not work. The right rear ABS sensor requires replacing. It intermittently comes on the dash but will go off when the car is switched off and on again. It has just been diagnosed. The asking price reflects the work not being done. The sensor is £70 for a genuine BMW one and it's 40 minutes work to change it. I love this car and am gutted I have to sell it, but there's no way I can justify paying a hefty premium to insure it. That said the vehicle is insured at the moment and will be till it sells. I wouldn't buy a car without test driving it and I wouldn't expect anyone else to. Please make sure you are insured to drive other cars though if you want to come see it. The interior and sunroof photos are from the ad in June. I'm getting some better shots of it soon! The vehicle is now on Y653 UBY Please call me on 07875387217 for more info. The car is available now. I'm asking £2200 for it, I will consider offers but don't want to lose too much of my original purchase price! Thank you

    Have I done this right? No claims discount.

    Life's a bit different now. And I cannot use my 9 years no claims. I'm not about to do anything illegal, and insurance fraud is very, very illegal. I'd rather do it 100% legit or not at all. If an insurance company cancels your insurance you have to declare it for the rest of your life.. it'd cost way more than £1200 then!
