2003 e39 525i Touring 5 speed manual for sale

I hope I'm not breaking any forum rules by posting this for sale. It has been a long time since I've hung out in web forums and Bimmerfest and I may not be up on all the rules!

My wife and I have decided it is time to part with this family heirloom vehicle! Originally owned by my wife's dad, he sold this wagon to us 3 or so years ago and we have owned it since. Never in an accident, the car is a VERY RARE 5 speed manual E39 BMW wagon! If you are into these cars, this is an opportunity to grab one.

I re-did the entire suspension about a year ago with Bilstein HD shocks, new bushings, arms, bearings. I also put in a new water pump, radiator, and hoses.

The car has an ABS warning issue which I have not looked into and as such the traction control currently doesn't work. I think it may have a leak around the sunroof. I am also still chasing a coolant leak somewhere (car does NOT smoke).

Approximately 130k miles. Car is in NJ but spent most of its life in Virginia. VIN: WBADS33453GD50487

All this said, if you are into these cars, you may want to check this one out. Let me know if you're interested.

Looks good. 5 speeds are rare! Probably should post in the Classified section for more exposure.

I've got the car at $5000 on another forum and it is generating interest. I'll stick to that for now. Thanks for the potential referral.
