This is my "new" 2003 525iA Sport Wagon. Has an amazing 12,000 mi on it. All I have done, and all I will be doing, is replaced the OEM, (manufactured in 2002!) Conti Touring tires with Conti Extreme Contacts, installed Akibono(sp) Euro pads, dropped in a Pioneer Avic w/amp/sub, a K&N air filter, and tinted the windows w/30%. Car drives like a brand new car! Could used another 300 horses, but who couldn't!

Yep, no kidding on hitting the jackpot. This was the classic little old lady's car, who yr after yr, just didn't put any mi on it. As mentioned, the tires were the originals from the factory, made in 2002, but also, the air cleaner most likely was the original too. When I pulled it out, the foam backing on the one side literally disintegrated when I touched it! While I don't want to say exactly what I paid for it, it was at the top end of the retail range, but it was worth it to me, to get a virtually new car.
