Mein Auto: E39 '01 525i Sport Wagon
Newbie with '01 525i Wagon - should I keep it?

Thanks for the insight and compliments. Up until recently, I have done TONS of DIY (try having a '69 Cougar and '72 Luxury LeMans as your only daily drivers in modern times- we looked cool but I did a lot of wrenching). A couple yrs ago Ipersonally changed the Trans in a hand-me-down car due to need. Now, with a toddler, I can't take on the DIY cars for a long while... As much as I (and my wife & friends, etc. ) dig this car, I need to pass it on.

I drove it to my n'hood Trans shop just to get codes pulled. Strangely, it seemed to shift fine to me... Though I probly only got to 3rd gear in that short distance...maybe 4th and or 5th is blown??

As for repairs, I missed one of the pages of the report- it shows getting the AC head unit replaced, as well as new wheel caps. Suspension wise, the left fr control arm was replaced. I'm still waiting for the earlier service history...

As far as I can tell, this car has all but a couple if options (main one being the Nav).
