    Hello all,

    Well i bought an E39 540i last weekend, it was a trade in at the dealership i work at, so i thought i would take a punt (my Mazda MX5 is up for sale if anyone is interested).

    I've spent the last 2 weekends cleaning it & bringing it back to its former glory.

    This is what it looked like when i bought it. It was looking rather sorry for itself & needed the alloy wheels refurbing & a damm good clean..




    And now it looks like this..

    Cheers Sparky, the cars in pretty good condition really, it has a couple of scuff marks on the front & rear bumpers, but thats about it really. Its done 122000 miles and has full BMW service history up to July 2008, the last owner has replaced everything thats ever been needed.
