Mein Auto: E39 535/6
Nothing special, I'm a mere sole parent pensioner these days, but I'm just working away a little bit at a time.
My E39, 1997 535i just about to hit 260000km (161500Mi) with few issues.
Since I got it I've had to replace a water pump and put a rear window repair kit in it (drivers side stopped going up and passenger side was done as preventative) and I've replaced damaged front and rear bumpers, clouded headlights with broken adjusters and the tail lights, which were pretty much thrown in when I bought the set of two bumpers. The side indicators are in transit, I should have them soon Wheel centre cap stickers will be next on my list of things to buy.
I'll be replacing the entire front and rear suspension (mostly preventative though the driver's (right) rear spring is sagging just over a half inch) in the next week as well with the help of my two oldest sons. I'll be replacing the front control arms, rack ends and link pins in my oldest son's E36 328i while I'm at it.
I'm loving this car, I've put 30000km (18600Mi) on it since I picked it up in March and it makes the frequent long trips I take a pleasure.
