    Hello all

    I've joined as i'm hoping to get a bit of advice...

    At the moment i'm running an old range rover with a 4.6 in it, and a small diesel peugeot estate...i'm planning to get rid of both and get something a bit newer which will kinda cover the duties of both.

    Ideally more economical than my RR (10mpg ish on LPG so 20mpg equiv), but comfortable for long distance as i have a few trips to europe planned. Also something that will tow a large caravan.

    What I had in mind was an E39 tourer...and being a petrolhead and liking something fun to drive I was considering a 540i, ideally running on LPG (i'm familiar with lpg having had quite a few cars running on it).

    Can anyone offer any advice / suggestions / things to look out for?

    What tends to be common faults and are they expensive to fix?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Many thanks

    James

    Welcome to the site James
    Use the search function at the top to browse some topics regarding E39's, and if you can't much information start a new topic asking for E39 advice in the General BMW section, you'll get much more replies in there
