E39 530i for $15k !

Recommended Posts

What looks to be a lovely example of a 530 which is no doubt a great great car, wanting offers around $15k though is dreaming. 134ks is ok but not earth shattering.

I would think 8 or 9k would top out, end of the day they can ask and good luck to them, but pass

Heh. Was just looking at this. Moonbeams. It does look in top condition, but... some serious haggle room built in I guess. 

Still. Good luck to him. A rising tide and all that...

Funny how some people think low km is special, @hqstu has dropped some coin on my old one but nearly double this things km and probably as tidy. And it isn't silver 😉 Still, nice to see a tidy well looked after example.

Silver and auto hah, was expecting it to be manual or something really special. 8k tops assuming no issues.

AM i wrong in saying that rear seat looks rather grey instead of black?

Is it 2010 again? Maybe relative pricing back then.

I dont think the sellers actually think its worth 15k, a realistic offer on this is $5k to start and settle around $6-7k.

Sold my NZ new black msport 2002 sedan with 17x kms for 6k last year and it was as tidy if not tidier than this

It makes me laugh that people invite realistic offers but provide no indication what they view a realistic offer to be. That coupled with the sellers attitude would count me out.

Also interesting that they mention the bad pixels being an inexpensive fix yet they've not bothered doing on their "pride and joy".

Nice car yeah, but no thanks.

Exactly

The replies from the seller - "Stick to things like old clothes tyres" have been all deleted.  These were in response to people giving him a hard time about his price.  But I am pretty keen to take it for a spin and offer him 4k just to see his reaction.

It is a very nice example but yep he needs to halve the price! :)

Wow.  E39's are worth nothing here in the US.  Seen them just as tidy going through the auctions for less than $4K.

Few M5's sneak in under $10K every now and then.  Though the NZD is shitting itself.

Paid $7500 for our black one at 138000km 2 years ago. If it was a factory manual maybe . . . . . . .
