Mein Auto: E39'01 540i6,E39'03 525iT
FS: 2003 525iT $6200 145638 miles, Seattle WA

I'm selling my '03 E39 wagon. Oxford Green Metallic, cold weather package, everything works. I bought this car in the fall of '14 and I'm the sixth owner. Carfax is clean, and I have every receipt and service record since I bought it. Style 31s on it with less than 8,000 miles on the tires.


The good:
This wagon has the following new parts:

New alternator
CCV Valve and breather Hoses
Oil Filter Housing Gasket
HP VANOS oil line
Air suspension level sensors replaced on both sides
New air spring for rear air suspension, left side
New front sway bar links
Diff fluid changed
Transmission fluid flushed and changed
AC belt and tensioner, new idler pulley
Expansion tank, thermostat, upper and lower radiator hoses, auxiliary switch, fan clutch replaced, PO replaced radiator at 120k miles.
Front brake pads and rotors
Oil last changed at 141,000 miles, always Mobil1 at factory intervals
New window regulator 11/4/2015, driver's side front

Cold Weather Package (ski bag, headlight washers, heated seats)
Parking Assist

The bad:

Oil leak from upper oil pan gasket. I have put 1.5 quarts of oil (always Mobil 1) in since the last oil change at 141,xxx miles. This amount has been normal for 10k miles.
Suspension noise from right front
Suspension squeak right rear
There are rock chips on the hood.
There is a ding on the passenger side front bumper from a previous owner's parking lot incident. The bottom of the front bumper has seen better days.
This car will need rear pads and rotors. 3 mm left on the rear pads.
A few pixels are out on the radio. All the dash pixels work fine (see pics)

I washed it today and that's what you see in the pictures, so there may be a bit of pollen on it when you see it. I'm willing to wash it again before selling.

This car is my wife's daily driver so the mileage may increase a bit.
