Been to Egypt half a dozen times over the years. The driving environment is really tough on cars, with the dust, heat, road quality and high traffic density. Sounds like the car held up well over...

I am not sure I could do what you did. After 8 years in 2 E60s, (5 years on my last one), my current car took over a year to find and it had some pretty big shoes to fill. As common as the E60 is,...

I've had two E60s, maybe I can help with a few of your questions:

Life After E60

It has been about 7 months since I sold my 535i, and admittedly it is missed. However, I think I miss participating regularly in this forum almost as much. The E60 forum has got to be the most...

Didn't get out of work as early as I thought today. Let us all know how you make out.

FWIW- I sold my 2009 535i last October at 5 years old. It was garaged and ding free, with 36k miles. It...

I'd try $34.5k. Do you live far from Darien, CT? I can spin by there and take a quick look for you to verify it is as advertised and pristine.

That car will sell. If you are familiar with that area of CT, people buy those cars for the nannies to shuttle the kids around. Agree that 40k is high, but it will get sold. That dealership has a...

I heard most of the new BMW biturbo V8s require a huge rebuild. Makes the old issues with the N54s looks like a blown tail light. And, I think they will run a lot more than 800!

Ok, that sounds good to me. However, I find the location of the shifter and shape clumsy for anything but pressing the buttons or sliding it over into DS. The pre-LCI shifter was nicely done.
