Got a new 528 5spd today

After a Aramark truck hit my old e39 I picked this one up today it's a 97 528 5spd w/ sport package. I was upset at first but this is a much better car than the 1 I had. I already added facelift Xenon headlights and xenon foglights from my old car

Don't forget to replace the VANOS seals, and all fluids. Better luck on this one.

How long did you look for this car?
