115K? Nice!

I wish I could honestly have one that low of miles and mod without worry about other things going out.

I just hope I can get rid of the rust issue, if I can then I'll have this car the rest of my life, it has a huge sentimental value to me.

I'm pretty attached to the one I'm driving as well. What color is it? Sebring Grau or close?

I really like the E39 rims on this car. Shot them Gunmetal grey instead of the plasti cote black that was on them when I bought it.

Don't apologize, not affected by this comment at all. I bought the car exactly as you see it (besides spraying the wheels gunmetal). I didn't like the "dipped" black wheels and I like the gray much better.

I always find it interesting when the only comment is something the poster perceives as negative. I guess you couldn't find anything positive to write.

I like the way the car looks and the previous owners "Alpina" fixation was not even a minor deterrent to my purchase.

Considering the age of the car, I think it looks quite good, Alpina badges and all!

Looking good Eero! The BBS definitely give it a more "performance" look.

Your car is seriously clean…
