Back in a Saab, so this is going. Six years in my ownership, and still solid to drive. Tyres are legal but not lots left, and it's a 5 series, so there is an intermittent shimmy on the front (they all do that, sir), but it's priced to be the cheapest one out there by quite a margin.

Sapphire Black, Sand Beige leather and walnut interior, BMW M-Sport wheels

178,000 miles, 50MPG

MOT October 2016. Genuine BMW M-Parallel deep-dish alloys from new; BMW mats; leather seats, doors, steering wheel, gearstick gaiter; 6 CD changer; front and rear parking radar; very effective dual-zone climate control; cruise control; electric passenger seat; electric driver’s seat, mirrors and powered steering column all with 3 memory settings; auto-dim mirror; auto Xenon angel-eye headlights with active levelling; auto wipers; steering wheel controls for cruise, radio.

Stamped history up to 82,000 miles, then maintained by me using high-quality parts and fully synthetic oil to schedule.

All the typical e39 jobs have been done: front and rear suspension rebuilt using poly bushes where available; clutch pedal weakness welded; EGR bypass; rear door seals; exhaust flexies; turbo oil filter; fuel pumps; fuel filter.

Recent work in the last year or so has included: master cylinder, front and rear discs and pads, front callipers, brake fluid; fuel pipes; front wheel hubs and bearings; exhaust flexy sections (high-quality stainless steel fittings); air filter; prop-shaft coupling; main electrical ‘hedgehog’ resister; battery with warranty; two diesel injectors

Typical blemishes, rust bubbles, a dent in the lower sill as seen in the pictures, and wear to go with the genuine age and mileage. Nothing structural, or even anything that people in general notice, and still much admired. All manuals and lots of receipts in the original BMW binder. Two Keys.

I have driven almost 100,000 miles over 6 years getting 50MPG in this car and it remains reliable and economical, and ready to give more years’ service to a new owner

I don't need any part-ex or contact from agencies, thank you.
