Used to have the plate RAYZR, might be familiar to someone.

Asking $1500, talks about transmission needing service... i take that as code that it shifts like a dog but they think fresh oil will fix it...  expired wof also, no plans to get one, never a good sign.

thankfully it has "exhaust fitted", despite it not being his cup of tea.  :rolleyes:

"Please note I am going to carry out the Transmission service the cost will reflect the work carried out, will have receipt for the work"  This appears to be an about-face to his comment "At this point I have no plans or intentions to remedy the issues, if I went down that path I'd be asking more,..." 

Well I'd hope the cost of the transmission work would be reflected in the receipt... hopefully he doesnt think that spending seven-fiddy at a transmission specialist will be directly proportional to his sell price!  

At least the lower guides have been done.

Those e60 wheels look odd on the e39.

As he says, it could work out okay for someone handy with a spanner, engine flush, new water pump, t'stat, and prolly some hoses... *if* the trans is okay.  Probably benefit greatly from a good clean inside and out!

More importantly, how did he fit e60 wheels on an e39? I thought e39 had a large hub centre than every other BMW?

might've had them machined - enlarged the centrebore?  They are e60 rims from a 530i, yeah?

Style 138 E60 rims yes, but not necessarily a 530i.

fair call. [engaging train spotter mode] consulting P65 of my US market e60 brochure, style 138 is standard on 530i, and not part of any of the option packs for other cars (though the diesel was non-existent there).  Style 116 standard on 545i... and the sport package wheels go from there.  /trainspotter mode
