Hi There Touring Team!

I haven't been on here in ages, it's nice to see the support for E39s and especially E39Ts. There are some beautiful examples on here.

I guess I will join the parade with my latest addition - Stasya Olga (Don't Ask... )

She arrived with issues first week of 2013 and I am in the process of solving them.

No Sound - Radio is completely dead, but Navigation works.

Tranny - I think it is about to die. Just noticed this . Almost seems to over rev, and it clunks down into low gear when slowing down.

Needs new shocks probably, but an upgrade was already planned.

Front Fog lights dead, bumper to be replaced.

Driver's seat has a rip - will be replacing with E38 or M5 seats for dual tone interior.

Rear leak on driver's side. Bad enough that there was mold (see picture).

Missing CD cartridge for CD player.

Brake Lights - Weird Action. The brakes lights seem to work intermittently. They come on and all, but they seem to go off even when the brakes are applied or if you come to a stop. I am suspected something wet somewhere or a faulty brake light switch?

Needs new key - don't have master key with remote lock.

Rear Tail Gate and Glass will need new shocks soon... not looking forward to that.

I guess it could be worse for $3.5K....

Had to vacuum the water out of the rear foot well....

Packed up the Shop-Vac used to get the water out. At least the rear tail gate works, but needs new shocks:

On the way home with her sister:
