Mein Auto: Artic Silver '01 E39 530i
I'm new here as I just purchased my first BMW (Titanium Silver 1998 e39 528i). I really wanted a manual shift, but the wife veto-ed it, so I'll have to suffer through the automatic for now. Got it at a great price, as it's a bit of a "project" car. I just refurbished the stereo and got the keyless entry working again thanks to this forum. Thanks for the great advice, BTW. I guess the previous owner was a bit of a tool as he tried to put in a video system. It took me about 4 hours to get the wiring out and replace the blown fuses!

I'll eventually change out the rims, brakes, exhaust and suspension. Everything is just stock for now.

Been a long time fan of BMWs everywhere since my dad's old 320i in the 1980s.

I'm also an avid F1 fan and I've been watching and going to the races (with dad) since the 1970s at Watkins Glen. I'm gutted that there is no more race in North America as I loved going both to Indy and Montreal.

Looking forward to chatting with you all on the boards!
