He has all of the maintenance records; I am checking it out on Saturday. There are a couple of issues - slight oil leak Oil Filter Housing gasket and the LED's in the display seem to go out. common problem, need signal ribbon replaced Per reading in the forum, sounds like I need to find out if he had the cooling system done.

Really looking forward to seeing the car. It is an automatic and I am a manual guy but my wife doesn't drive stick and neither do my kids (yet) so I think auto is more practical. The color (interior and exterior) is perfect- Blue with sand interior.

Just wanted to say hello!
Congrats and welcome aboard!

2000 Dinan S1 //M5 (my DD), 06 DINAN E53 4.8iS (wife's DD), 90 Straman Z32TT (my pride & joy ride)
Gone, but not forgotten: 01 E53 3.0i, 01 525i Sport, 03 DINAN 540i MSport, 01 //M5 and 91 Z32TT
