1998 BMW E39 535i V8 Manual £3500 NE66

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

For sale is my 1998 (Pre-Vanos) E39 535i V8, with the rare 5 speed Manual Gearbox, finished in the classy Biarritz Blue.

 

Having been on the look-out for a well-maintained M62 V8 Manual for some time, I jumped at opportunity to acquire this car when it came on the market around 3 months ago.

 

However, I have recently bought another car, and this combined with the fact that I will be working from home for the foreseeable future with no commute, means I cannot justify keeping this car.

 

The car has covered 184K miles with only 2 previous owners. It comes with FSH, MOT until August 2021, and has clearly been well maintained. (There are 19 Service Stamps in the Booklet)

 

There is also a large folder of receipts, showing the extensive maintenance which has been performed on the car over the years.

 

A summary of the most recent / significant work performed on the car (all with receipts to prove):

 

-          Recent Engine Oil and Filter change (Sep 2020)

-          X2 new Avon ZV7 Tyres (Jul 2020)

-          New Front & Rear ABS Sensors (Aug 2020)

-          Both Rear Shock Absorbers replaced (Jul 2019)

-          Front Lower Suspension Arms, Wishbones, Anti-Roll Bar (Sep 2019)

-          New Bosch Battery (Jan 2019)

-          Rocker Cover Gaskets (Feb 2018)

-          Alternator (Feb 2016)

-          Starter Motor (Dec 2016)

-          Rear roll-bar links (May 2015)

-          Coil Pack (May 2015)

-          Bonnet Respray (Aug 2015)

-          Alternator (Sep 2011)

-          Clutch and Flywheel (Feb 2008 – 140k)

 

Cosmetically the car is generally very clean for its age, although there are a few small patches of surface-level rust emerging as is pictured in the photos.

 

Points a new owner would want to address:

-          The car consumes a very small amount of coolant. Previous owner advised it needs a top-up every 6-800 miles.

-          Minor oil leak (likely rear main seal)

 

The car is located in Northumberland, NE66.

 

£3,500 ONO
