BMW 530i (E39)
I bought my 530 (a 2002 Edition Exclusive model) in October 2019 when circumstances required a second four-door car in the family. The car at the time had done 320,000km (200,000 miles), but was in good technical condition. The E39 has been called BMW’s best car ever, with better build quality than the E36/E46 3-series, reliable M52 and M54 engines, and far less electronics issues than the E60 successor. The posts below chronicle my efforts in keeping this quick and comfortable Youngtimer on the road.
