E39 523i manual

Recommended Posts

Some what poverty spec vehicle but looks good, probably needs a 2.8L in it though. Is first E39 ive seen in NZ with a single climate control setup, great bonus since rotary temperature knobs are superior.

Wow, that thing is mega poverty pack. Would be good for a manual swap on a 530i though...

It's back!  But at a premium and without the Type 66 wheels 😕   

This was an auction last time and with a few minutes left is was $2500.. so I auto bid $6800. After much late bidding, it sold for $6900, presumably to this guy.

I agree with him about the radio, simple is good,  but not the manual climate control, and no cruise control 😞

Manual heater controls are the best part. Id take them any day over crappy 90's digital button units (glad they were short lived)

Much nicer looking car with the type 66 wheels... Would want to change out the headunit and maybe motorsport steering wheel also.
