looks very well maintained. Just needs a nice detailing job and she will new again.
You plan to keep her stock or pimp it?? Also if its not a problem could you disclose how much you got her for?
Somehow haven't seen a lot of these in Delhi.

Awesome car. 5-Series has been my all time favorite. For how much you bought it and what all modifications you are planning to do?

Good buy, for sure. Did you get it checked at the local BMW dealership before you bought it?

Wow!! Two Bimmers in the house
Congratulations! And an E39 that's run ~57000 kms is a good buy there.
Please throw some light on the "16 L/100 kms"; I'm sure these are city driving figures, but would like to know how much she fares on a highway trip.

Superb car Abix. Can you let us know the specs?? V8 or I6 and history like from which country she was imported.?

In the US, the type 1 E39 came with only 528i and 540i but the older model had a 530i V8.

Hey guys, thanks for the comments, glad u all like it! The car is a 3 litre inline 6. Mechanically it is as good as new as it was really taken care of and it has original 57000 kms on the odo. The 16l/100km is the mileage it gives so ive noticed that even when pressed hard it does deliver around 6kms per litre. As far as the mods are planned, at the moment im going to upgrade to HIDs and then go in for an audio upgrade. Wheels im planning on upsizing to 18 inch M parallels or maybe shadowlines which came on the E39 M5 as well as ordering a replica M kit.

Great buy Abix! Still love those interiors. HID's are always good upgrades. looking forward to your M-Kit upgrade. Will change the complete look of the car. Looks like its automatic, correct me if I'm wrong.
