    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently serving with the RAF in the Falkland Islands, where my family and I are coming to the end of a 2.5 year tour. We cannot wait to return to the UK in a couple of weeks time not least for the shopping and the sky HD telly, but because I can finally buy another e39 after having to sell my old 520 SE to come here. The wife and I currently run a pair of his and hers P38 V8 Range Rovers, as fuel is cheap and insurance even cheaper; where else could you run a pair of these beasts and afford it? (apart from the Middle East, US, Canada.....)

    Anyway, I'm desparately looking for a black 530d manual SE or Sport e39, with preferably under 110k miles on it. Can anyone help??? I have the cash ready and waiting for my return to the UK on 1 Sep, and need to car asap after that as I will be hiring a car until I find my e39.

    I'm sure the right car will come along, and I look forward to becoming an active member of the forum when it does.

    I was down in MPA 1st in 1990, then in 2003 just before I left the RAF, buggers got me when I PVR'd. I was Trade Group 3 Telecommunications, based in JCUFI.

    Left the MOB and now work for SERCo doing the same job (Skynet) that I did at Oakhanger, Hants.

    Welcome aboard mate, tis a small world

    Wow this forum really is friendly. Thank you all for your kind welcome.

    Tall Steve, nothing has changed with the place since 2003, or even 1998 when I was first here.
