BMW E39 M5

Post by MCB » Tue Sep 15, 2015 12:29 am

I think this one is a bit of a bargain. Even though it is being sold by Old Colonel. In this condition and with such low mialage I would expect at least a 15k price tag. Soooo tempting 8)

I'd want to check the dates on that service history very carefully, two Inspection 2's back to back? Something not right there.

Hmmm. Maybe it is just a typo John.

Could be, it's something I saw a lot of when I was E39 shopping a few years back though, and usually meant gaps in the history before a new owner came in and gave the car the full treatment.

Could equally be perfectly legitimate though :)

Funny enough, the thing that bothers me the most is the black kidney grills. When I see that on a car it makes me think it may of belonged to the boy racer brigade. :shock:
