Just dropping in to say hello! I'm taking on a mates E39 as he is going to work abroad for a few years, so thought I'd join up to be able to get the lowdown on the issues I will inevitably encounter (well the car has done 135K, albeit well looked after!)
It's not my first forray into BMW's, as until last year I had a rather nice 123d 3dr SE auto from new as my company car. In white, Terra leather and 18 inch alloys, all the toys - a great car!
Now I run my own business I've got to be rather more careful with the pennies, hence taking up my mates offer of his E39 at a good price.
A 3dr 1 series to a 5 series estate in the space of a year? That's the effect of parenthood for you.........
Will be diving into the forums shortly!
BTW, this is my old 123d, as I haven't picked up the E39 yet:
