Hey all, just purchased an 06 525D M-Sport this week. Absolutely love this thing. Miles are high at 185K but it has been looked after.

Very clean, mint inside and only a few niggly items to resolve but the money was bang on so I’m landed.

Everything works now my mate has re-gassed the AC yesterday which is now ice cold, clutch pedal is sitting too low but if you lift the pedal before starting it it makes it easier to start without multiple retries, so I’m gonna attempt a bleed this week before changing the MC and wheels need a refurb as someone has used the kerbs as the parking marker! 

Was thinking of black chrome for the wheels but not sure I should just stick with bright sparkle silver on my A08-Silver Grey car? Opinions welcome.

 

Private reg included too which has been valued at £900 which will probably be sold to recoup some funds.

 

I have owned a few BeEms over the years in the shape of an E30, E30 Touring, E36 x 2 and an E34. All bar the 34 have been 4 pot cars and the 34 just a 2.0 - 6 with 180K on it.

Cheers d_a_n1979 I can only assume you mean the Bluetooth tuner in the cigarette lighter. Only other thing I’ve added are the fresh air vent deodorisers from Halfrauds.
