are you still looking? I just put my '07 with 51K miles up for sale. And I'm up in the North East so you don't have to go far to see it :)

FS: 2007 BMW 530xiT - 6sp

Hi Everyone,

I haven't posted in a while, been busy with work and the family.

Confirmed. I did the same thing with my 740 last year. Took off the oil pan to check if the oil pan bolts are on nice and tight. I removed the oil with my Griot's vacuum tool, and when I removed...

I love it. In fact I think it's a great idea to list all the options on your car in a column along side the xDrive logo. It can look something like this:

+1

You should be fine. If you're ok with spending $1.5K/year on maintenance/repairs once the cpo runs out you'll be fine. A good indy mechanic is indespensable.

It'll fit, but keep in mind that 540's have the cdv, M5's don't. Another cheap alternative is to throw in an e60 545 shifter. Do a search on this and you will get plenty of satisfied customers. I...

I have 2 young kids, the older one grew up with my 2003 with the black interior, which still looks as good as the day I got it. Although the kids try to destroy it, they have yet to achieve success.
