First pics of new ride

3481 21
Picked up my E39 on Sunday morning, gave it a bath yesterday and got a few pictures on my phone. I'm glad i got black Euro plates now. Next mod is to delete the tow bar and get a new diffuser, previous owner got it put on as an after thought and subsequently cut the diffuser panel to fit it. My favorite car to date was a MkV Golf R32 manual, it was faster than the 5er and sounded fantastic. Overall I think I prefer the 5er, plus it was about half the price, bargain! :D

Tis a beauty! Welcome to the forum.
Nice - too bad it was put into tow service. What up with that?
wow class 3 trailer hitch! Smart looking car!
I've never seen one so big on an E39, and a 6...
Very nice E39!! If yours is a true "Individual" please post interior pics as I would LOVE to see a Individual car as there so rare.
Thanks gang, yeah the tow thing put me off a bit but the mileage is low and the tranny feels great, the guy insisted he rarely towed and the parts used for towing look almost new so I believe him. I'm enjoying the snow at NZ now but will post more pics asap :)
Right? Who thought you could tow w ith a BMW... Oh, that is right, BMW.

Nice looking 530i, and factory mtech too.

1997 540i 6 Speed, Sport. My first Bimmer! I picked it up last week. Due to knee injury, I still couldnt drive it. It is killing me slowly....

I'm very late here, but there you go :)

Birch anthracite with Silverstone leather

whats a "BMW Individual" ?

Im sorry to be the 1st to say but thats not a true "Individual" As everything is stock color and nothing special about the interior. Just the door seals are Individual. A true "Individual" will have 2 tone interior and very rare color combos. But still a very clean E39 you have there:D
Thanks :) However, mine is an individual. What you mentioned above are "optional" components on the individual program. The whole idea of it is to customize your car to the color scheme you like most. You don't actually have to have to have two tone leather or the outrageous paint colours, most people just order those colours to stand out.

I know mine is one because it is Carbon Black (Only available on the M5 and individual cars) and it has birch anthracite trim, which is individual only.

...Not to mention I decoded the VIN before I purchased it :)

Hmmmmm Very good point about the paint:D
Yup, for once a BMW Individual buyer who had some taste. :thumbup:

I got lucky. More often than not the colour choices are (at least to me) very ostentatious and at times just horrible. To each there own though, some may say mine is too tame, whatever floats the boat :thumbup:
