Then the mileage was inputted as 39,545 on 09/20/2007 which is based on the mileage on the title and not the actual mileage of the vehicle when auctioned to and bought by Moss Motors who then inputted the actual mileage of the vehicle from the cluster.

Mein Auto: 530i Sport Package
Just had my 530i detailed. Just when you think it can't get any better. These BaT posts are nice.

The E39 broke the mold. I've owned a few cars but for some reason my e39 triggers something in me just by looking at her. I can't explain it. I see newer flashier cars that catch my eye but my 530i hits me in a very unique way. Even when I park I find myself looking back after taking several steps to get a full view.

Is it just me?

My 150K+ engine still purrs like a lion. The auto-transmission is smooth as butter. Headlights look showroom new thanks to the protective film. My leather seats just feel right. Bimmerfest has been a big help.

I meant to say I think I saw a Imola red with the black/grey combo for MY2000 once before. Otherwise it might not have been offered as you suggested.

I'd love a Imola Red or an Oxford Green or Avus Blue M5 with caramel interior. Only problen is that caramel is a difficult interior color to keep looking nice. Not something that would be good for a daily driver in my case.

Joe - interesting, didn't realize/remember you bought after RNM and avoided the fee. I should have interviewed you for the story!

Good luck Nate!

Well this is encouraging Nate, $21k, 87k miles and a 2002 post facelift.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/20..._listing_ended

That Imola may be closer to $15 than we think. Depends on the premium people are willing to pay for the color I guess. The car above is a better deal without taking the color into consideration, or maybe silver just goes at a discount?

Id press buy now with out any doubt, or hesitation


THAT is the perfect platform,

It comes home, gets a coolant overhaul and inspection and becomes a sunny day driver until the next part breaks

If you have done it with the 540, you have basically done the same thing as what till have to be done with a young blood m5 *some of it cost slightly more, but if your handy with the part number

that's lightly disappointing.. it didnt have the high gloss shadow line, So someone messed around there,

pretty base line package, for m5?



So.. i take that back.. looks like that is the standard for m5 vin packages... I just ran about 10 different cars i could find for sale online.. and they all seem to be exactly the same (im just taking notice to how the m5 e39 was sold)

Hmmm....at first I thought you had to be joking, I was, but I guess for $10 grand or less and a new hood, you could have an M5 with reasonable miles.

Titanium silver has the advantage of being ubiquitous. I could probably go to a junkyard now and walk out with a hood in ~1hr.

Not the most popular color but I do like it. Another one with that sweet spot on mileage that may make it affordable or south of $15k. I'll say $14,500.

It's at 13.5 with 4 days remaining. It'll see low 20's if not 25k.

Did this car had the timing chain guides replaced ? Just curious to know,.. If not, you may deduct $3K from the bidding price !!

Yeah the price shot up very quickly after I posted. There is definitely a premium for a well documented car and how much effort the seller puts into the listing.

This car will probably go for $10k more than the Imola 2000 with similar miles. Crazy.

I see this car as substantially more refreshed than the Imola, with quality mods, a rare color and complete leather. Seems to me it should go for more. Plus Imola was MY2000 and had an accident. Of course things like color and mods are subjective, but well known brands here.

If seller had addressed fender piece and gas cap rust, it would prob sell for even more.

You all may not like the interior, but this car is a beast. Not worth importing I presume. $70,000 USD

Not a bad deal, color had to be a factor:

This one very similar to my car, so I watched closely. Might have been held back a bit due to seller not knowing some details re his car:
