If you spend the money for a 540i, the v8 and 6 speed manual is nearly bulletproof. It's fairly cheap if you know how to use a wrench to maintain

Yeah my dad uses all seasons/weather. He had a flat probably a month ago and called me because he "couldn't get the tire off". I had to drive to him and it took 20 or so kicks to get it off

So don't buy one off a guy who beat the s(h)it out of it

Timming chains and rod bearings should be fine if oil changes were done at the...

My dads car (pre LCI, N52 530xi) is at 220,000 miles.

Fastest you've driven your e39
