Allright folks im a complete noob and have just purchased my first e39 bmw 5 series its a 520i got it at a bargain price of£600 it has 78000 on the clocks and full bmw service history up until 2009 and from them the car has covered 4 thousand miles the previous owner bought it and realised it was too big for him and sold it to me im now the third owner of the car the bodywork is in brilliant condition for age only 1 bit of rust on the tailgate and the interior is amazing apart from the driverside seat has all ripped and freyd as if someones wallet has rubbed on it but i plan on changing the interior to full leather and remove the wooden trim for some other sort anyway look forward to get to know a few of you thanks
