E39's are getting awfully old... everything has it's time. I remember when you would see quite a few MK2 Supras on the road. I haven't seen one in almost a decade. I had 2 of them up til 2007. Again, one of Toyotas best cars ever. Same with the E39's.... very respected, game changing platform. To me, I can't see in 2-3yrs when my E39 has 200k getting another. I'll go newer, but still used BMW. Kudos on the F. Should be a nice new car. Least you didn't go get a FWD VW, I mean Audi.
