Bought a new lens today and snapped a few pics. Wish I could've gotten out when the light was better.

Show off your E39 post pics!!!

Just purchased this 530iA a couple of weeks ago with only 30k miles. Already did a full service on it and saw an increase of 2 mpg. I love the m54 engine. This car reminds me of my 3 before I started modding it, except a bit bigger and heavier. It has that same BMW essence. So far I love it.

It has replaced my 3 series as the daily driver because I have two kids and the commute was getting crazy for my 6 speed with heavy duty pressure plate. My leg was starting to take a beating.
