BMW E39 530D 2002 Auto

Recommended Posts

I am selling my 3 owner, well-loved BMW E39 530d which is now shy of 190k on the clock, car has full service history and a box of receipts to back up the work that has been done to it. No expense has been spared on it. Previous owner (another forum member) has had the car deflapped and new turbo fitted by TCS High Wycombe, flexi joint changed, heated seats installed and chassis undersealed.


I have done the following in the last year, with no expense has been spared:

·      Interior LED bulbs

·      Replaced painted piano black trim with brand new original Grey trim with gearknob lever

·      Replaced SE steering wheel with Sports Steering wheel

·      Windows Tinted

·      JVC Bluetooth Stereo fitted

·      Bought and fitted new bosch battery

·      Osram Nightbreaker Genuine Xenon Bulbs fitted

·      Changed entire suspension with new lemforder parts - arms and bushes, track rods, engine mounts and transmission mounts also changed.

·      Replaced shocks with bilstein b8’s (bought from Larkspeed) in the front, and Monroe shocks rear – firm but very comfortable ride

·      Installed Eibach Springs along with the shocks (bought from Larkspeed -  Under Warranty)

·      BMW E39 Sports ARBs fitted – front and rear

·      Had a new steering rack installed including flush (ACS refurbed one-Warranty provided)

·      New steering pump (ACS again- Warranty provided)

·      New Windscreen fitted

·      Air Conditioning has been serviced

·      Engine been terracleaned, receipt to prove this

·      Car has been serviced twice in my time by local mechanic, last time 3000 miles ago

·      2 new injectors replaced by Lynx diesel (warranty provided)

·      New BMW original light levelling sensor installed, as old one had rusted and broke

·      New brakes (front and rear), Front was only down 2000 miles ago

·      Continental sports contact 5 tyres fitted with lots of wear left

·      Car has been aligned since work has been done, so all new buyer needs to do is get in and drive.

·      Last MOT was clean as everything has been changed!



·      Colour: Topaz Blue

·      Gearbox: Automatic

·      Model: 530d 192 bhp

·      Date of production: 2002-07-25

·      Mot expiry: 30th May 2018

·      Previous Owners: 2

·      Mileage: 189000

·      Wheels: Style 81 17” alloys




Bad bits

·      Missing pixels in instrument cluster

·      Bonnet stone chipped, various small parking dings and a few odd scratches around the car(mainly bumpers) nothing you wouldn’t expect on a 15-year-old car

·      Intermittent parking sensors issue, works fine most of the time

·      Drivers Mirror cover is not painted


Car drives very well indeed, just fancy going back to petrol now and was made an offer I couldn’t refuse! So, someone will be getting a very well maintained 530d for very little money. I have most if not all the receipts to back up my time with the car plus an extensive service history from the previous owner(s)


£2,000, Luton
