    well after 3 weeks of being on pistonheads the 1st viewer came yesterday afternoon,
    He wants the car that i have loved and cherished for more than 4 years, He came back round today with the deposit and wants to take the car at the weekend i feel sick at the thought of it going now and im dreading the day he drives it away.
    it has been by far my best car but on the up side i get to shop for e39 M5s.:jump:
    i just hope the bmw forums are as helpful and frieendly as everyone this forum

    Regards
    gav

    Good good, so the burning question that everyone wants to know is, what did you let it go for, or is that classified? lol :)

    Well they do seem to be notorious money pits. A M5 will be much more enjoyable too. Shame I probably would prefer a red one

    Not a bad price at this time of year, did he get the Porsche rims etc. with the sale? Bargain if he did to be fair.

    pretty much all what i spent was on mods lol so its my own fault but i did change all my perished hoses.
    got to love a nice red car best colour imo on the right car of course.

    You have (had!) a great looking car. £6600 for all that is a blimmin' bargain imo.

    thanks mate
    the milage was at 99k and i prefer doing my own servicing (dont trust garages)
    think that would put people off.
    I think he got one hell of a bargain but atleast i got the funds i need to get my new car now so im happy

    E39 M5 is 1998 to 2003, still 5.0 litre V8 and 400bhp will put a massive smile on your face, and possibly a big hole in your pocket if you have a heavy right foot. Would love a go in one myself, a lot of car for not a lot of money these days. although I think id go for a B6 S4 over the M5 just because I want an estate lol. Good luck with the search. Some bmw forums are good, I was on an e30 forum when I had my 318is, some really helpful people on there but when looking into e36 other forums werent as good, but that was 4 years ago now so things may have changed.
