Well, I bought my E39 on Sunday and am loving it :D It's a 2002 with fully BMW history up to 100k and specialist thereafter!! She's currently on 129k so not mega mileage!! This is the only pic I've got at the minute, just after getting the backboxes replaced with straight pipes :biggrin:















I absolutely love it, it's so much smoother than my last car, 2005 Impreza STi running 475bhp/ 460lb ft !!

Here's a wee vid too!!

Congratulations on your purchase. It is amazing how many high mileage E39s there are out there that are still running strong. The E39s just seem to keep going and going. Enjoy your new purchase.

What tips are those? I like how they appear to fill up the spaces in the rear valance. Size/diameter?

Those pipes make a huge difference to the rear end. Your mechanic looks chuffed too!

Those pipes look and sound great. Your Bootlid badge is in the wrong place tho!
Nice car, Carbon Black is the fastest :)

Thanks for tour comments guys :) not sure about the boot badge, off to BMW to get it looked over next week so will ask them then! I paid £7k for it which equates to about $11500 I believe!!

DAMN! Forgot to tick quote message.

I was talking about the bootlid badge. It looks right to me.
