    Hello ,

    I am living on a tiny island called Mauritius, and just bought my 3rd Beemer! Yay!

    Its a beautiful E39 520i Touring, and only one of 3 on the Island. I am a bit of a maniac and usually go for super clean cars with low mileage and history .. but .. As I fell in love with this model a while back and they are soo rare here, when I saw the touring sitting at a secondhand car dealers, I had to have it!

    The interior and bodywork is clean. But unfortunately the engine is in a bit of a sorry state (No power)
    Its up for a full service and tune up next week hope the bills don't start to add up !
    Everything else looks ok, the rear tailgate is Very stiff and the radio/cd works but no sound

    Pics will follow soon..

    I have loads of plans for this car and hope to share as much as I can on the forum.
    So would appreciate your suggestions and comments in the months to come!

    That was one hell of an awesome colour!

    Here are some pics of my Mauritius Blue E39 touring 520i just after I got it.
    Planned changes
    • Those headlights !!!
    • Unfortunately the wheels will have to go :( - 19' wheels on Mauritius roads ... not a good idea.

    Thanks,
    This 99 520i set me back around £5000, quite expensive compared to uk prices
    Fuel is @ approx £1 a liter ... and raising :s
