1998 BMW E39 528i AT sold

Post by Me. @ Sat Dec 27, 2014 6:57 pm

In silver-blue metallic (more silver than blue) with black leather interior in excellent condition. The body has a few dinks but generally will be good when ready (next week) and has a set of AC Schnitzer alloys. The mileage is just under 150K and has history and the motor is sweet as usual on these. This is the single Vanos engine. Climate control, Business radio/cd changer/cassette, remote central locking, ASC, steering height adjust, seat height adjust, Auto dim mirrors, electric mirrors, electric windows, wood effect trim.
A good solid car with a lot spent (450.00) just to get the last MOT in August after which it has only covered 75 miles. It has been lowered and would not be suitable for someone living in an area of violent speed bumps, that's what took the AC S splitter off already.
No knocks, clonks or any indication of the usual rear bushes, front control arms or similar. New wheel bearings being fitted next week, full service, new coil pack x2, paint repairs and tyres.
£890.00 OVNO.
Pics to follow.

Actually....forget it.
Turns out the seller was way less honest than I gave them credit for.
Needs coils, rocker cover gasket (fcuking pita in these) and might as well do PCV.
Bonnet needs complete respray.
both rear and one front arch need paint.
boot sill needs paint.
front wheel bearings need replacing
front bumper needs attention then paint.
Taped over Airbag light....didn't see it at the time.
More previous users than Katie Price.

So.....just as well I like them and have a buyer on the Jag. I'll sort this out so I'm happy with it and use it to write it back to a saleable value.
Just as well it has the AC Schnitzer alloys and has been dropped correctly using Eibach springs and Bilstien dampers. The interior is a very nice almost black green and in the soft leather, exterior is Glacier Green, a colour I am keen on.
So I guess it's my new car then for a while.
