A little hello,

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I’ve been a member here for a little while now, originally finding it whilst researching a potential new car.


(I bought it) :D

e39 540i/6 Touring - somewhat of a holy grail car


yes, it was previously owned by Barry on here, but I actually bought it from its interim owner.


it needs a bit of work to sort some issues I’ve found, but feel it’s worth it to preserve this beast.


I'm already spending on it (like I normally do with new cars), sorting the little trim bits out etc to make me happy with it.


the saloon in the background is an old friend. My dad owned it from new, putting 200+k on the clock, and I’ve got it all the way to 285. it’s been a really good car, I know every little bit of it, but it’s time to move it on... needs similar welding work as the touring, but I’ve been after a touring, specifically a 540 manual for a long time, growing family, road trips, camping etc, this just came up and the time was right.


im going to spend a little time swapping a few bits over, then get the old saloon over to my mates to renew the mot, and it’ll be time to say goodbye. :(

anyway, bit of a brief history....


cut my teeth with fords, joined the world of forums many years ago,
