Hi there, just thought I'd say hello for the first time here.
I've just become a BMW owner again after a gap of (wait for it) 27 years.
I've just bought a 99 model E39 523i SE Auto and I'm really impressed with the car, the marque has certainly advanced a great deal since 1983 when at that time I was the proud owner of a 1973 2002Tii in Golf Yellow, a sort of Lime Greeny/Yellow colour if anyone can blow away the mists of time and remember back that far.
Anyhow my current E39 is in Aspen Silver Metallic and has covered 118k miles but drives as if you can knock a 1 off that figure it's that good. Silky smooth V6, auto box is an absolute gem, loads of equipment and so economical for what the car is means I don't know why I've denied myself this pleasure for that long.
I'm going through the cleaning and polishing stage as I've only had the car for 5 days but the only thing that needs doing is the removal of 2 or 3 parking dings which is one of my pet hates. A mate of mine has the franchise for a paintless dent removal company in my area and he's coming tomorrow to make my sides as smooth as silk and back to new again.
I'll let you know how it looks when he's finished but for now I'm off to edit my profile and have a browse around as I'm still a junior on here
Bye for now and speak to you soon.
