Car looks mint!
Thanks for the welcome guys. This sounds like a great forum and i have learnt a lot already from reading the specific series 5 forum.
Car has just come back from its service. Passed with flying colours! Front pads will need doing in about 3 months but that's it. Very relieved that we seem to have picked up a good one. Engine warning light was just a damp sensor on the fuel flap somewhere? And it drives like a dream. First BMW and loving it so far!
Again really like the car.
So what made you pick an E39 anyway and what did you have before?
To be honest, we needed an automatic 5 seater having just sold our 7 seater Qasqai +2. We have a couple of other cars ( a cheap Fiesta and a lovely MX5 Arizona) so our family will now go out about in two cars (doesn't happen very often). I looked at older Mercs and a Honda Accord but the e39 really stood out! And we needed a car quick!
Last of the great true bmws in my opinion
