FOR SALE: BMW Toolset for E39 Touring Tailgate Struts

FOR SALE: one original BMW toolset 83 30 0 492 604 for replacing the tailgate and rear window struts on the E39 Touring. The toolset consists of
5 12 153 Plastic Protector (small sheet of plastic to protect roof)
5 12 152 Windows Strut Tool (turned and drilled aluminum tube)
5 12 151 Tailgate Strut Tool (aluminum bar with collar and fulcrum pin)

Purchased from Bavarian Autosport for $121.95 plus shipping, used for my strut replacement.
I am asking $100 plus shipping for the toolset.

Here are photos of the tools and the strut replacement process.

Here is a writeup from this forum with instructions from the TIS.

You will need two each
51248190688 Hatch Window Strut ($30 to $45 each from Autohaus Arizona)
51248220072 Tailgate Strut ($57 each from Autohaus Arizona)

I have been reading since I got the Touring in November 2005, so I guess this is also my introductory note.
