Front lowered with Eibach Pro Sport springs.

Timeless NI number plate

All original documents and BMW wallet.


Hardly driven over the last few years, MOT'd + 6 months. Oil changed every 12 months regardless of ultra low miles driven.

156,500 miles, as you may know a replacement engine was fitted 3 yrs ago due to timing chain failure. New engine was from a 2000 car on just over 100k. Huge maintenance file for both cars. Drives perfectly.


No rust apart from the usual minor bubbling on front of sills.

All doors recently stripped and reassembled with new waterproof Butyl during the lockdown. Insides Waxoiled. Carpets as dry as a bone.

New tailgate dampers recently fitted.

Tailgate and doors rust free

Auto levelling sensor recently replaced.

New handbrake shoes fitted last year - it works!

Approx 3 years ago bonnet, tailgate and whole left hand side of car was respayed by Bimmerbuild.



DSP forgets settings everytime ignition is turned off.

Some touch up paint on front bumper.

Some small bubbling on front of sills as has every E39

Check rear lights message as facelift lights on pre facelift - needs resistors fitting, have got them but haven't got round to it yet. Still have original rears which I will pass to new owner.

As you know, front arch liners are £200 each from BMW so have fitted an eBay replica set. As is common, the fit isn't perfect.

Not perfect of course but pretty unique in terms of spec.


Have given it loads of love and attention since I bought it in December 2013 from a lady in Chelsea who used to be on Eurotrash.

Did this go to a forum member? Be cool to see it progress further on here!

 No, someone on an E39 Facebook group.
