and replaced it with, yes, another BMW:D

a 540 touring, 6 speed manual. exactly the spec i wanted pretty much but needs quite a bit of tidying up so i got it cheap. no pics yet as i have a few things to sort on it this weekend. FOund the original bill of sale in the SH for £53,255!!!! ouch indeed!

Got ok'ish money for the 530D but no one wants the manual ones really so it was hard to sell.

loving the V8 though, it has a full Janspeed exhaust on it and sounds like a Nascar. awesome!

going from 45mpg to 22 hurt this morning though :lol2

Hi Deano - you could go for a LPG conversion - I met a taxi driver with a 540 with 440,000 miles on the clock running on LPG ... have a look at http://www.professautogas.co.uk/ - excellent LPG conversion prices and very knowledgeable - they also run a 540 on LPG. (I used them for my 530i :))

its not all bad-it did 18mpg on the way home from work today :lol2

the bodywork isnt great but i aint fussed about that to be honest. The wheels are badly corroded but mechanically its great. its only done 74k so not even run in, it even came with a private plate so when i update the front end it'll look great.

Only thing i cant get used to is the servotronic steering. Its taking a bit of getting used to. the double glazing, 10 speaker hi-fi (it even has them in the ceiling) and the V8 are all very nice though :yes

I might LPG it but a conversion is about 2k and no where finances them.
