Mein Auto: 2001 530i
Soon to be (hopefully) new E39 owner

Friend of 30+ years is selling his 2001 530. I have been in the market for a performance sedan so seems like a good match.

He has all of the maintenance records; I am checking it out on Saturday. There are a couple of issues - slight oil leak and the LED's in the display seem to go out. 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!
