Liking that Touring, there's a properly nice motor in there with a bit of tidying.

Perhaps not large enough to be a proper barge, but I can't help but feel love for this:

Who doesn't want a Maserati with 2 turbos and 4 doors. All the car you could ever need and you get to say "I own a Maserati"...

i wouldn't go anywhere near that, not only because i think it looks awful, but because it would be extortionate to keep, i suspect.

A working Maser for £2k. Madness.

Most endearing terms I've ever heard rust described in too.

The clock will be the only bit that works anywhere near reliably. Until it breaks.

The only people who feel any sexual twinge when regarding such metal is sad old weirdbeard men. Like us and even then, far from all.

JAYB might give you a desultory handshandy, but that's the limit of any action that car will buy you.

Gents. Apologies for the obvious, but I must admit to being rather enamoured with this:

http://autotrader.mobi/used-cars/advert/2012174664...

I'm doing some serious motorway munching of late, I reckon ideal family wagon with ~20% better empeegees. I've also been eyeing late E46 330i Tourings, but reckon a late E39 is the right call.

At £3k, yes but not at £5k. Whether you're a fan of it or not, that is E60 money and if you don't like the E60 is probably better spent on an A6 Avant Quattro or something.

Looks a tasty treat - I like.

yup. i noticed an E60 530d with around 110k for cheaper.

i don't care what people say, on non-RFT's the ride is really quite good.

Like it. My Dad had a Tornado Red 90 with the 2.3 10v engine. The proprietor of the local garage who looked after it had a 2.3 20v Quattro which I thought was amazing.

Having had a look, a decent E60 530d Touring can't be had for much less than £7k which is quite a bit more than the E39 above - just don't see it as a £5k car even though there are plenty in the classifieds at up to £6k.

Yes it's a bit steep because it's a dag dag, but there's none around at cheaper money unless you want moon miles. It's on a 53 with full BMW SH and is a good buy at 4.5 I reckon.

Early E60 interiors aren't all that and besides you are looking at 3k more anyway.

That is not E60 530d Sport money at all and neither is it really previous gen A6 money either, sub £5k tends to buy the 96-04 shape A6 that was in direct competition with the E39.

I wouldn't buy that car either because it's a 530d and the same 530i would be a grand less with less bork-tendancy, but the E60 wouldnt factor into my reason why not.

fir enough HR - go for it....is it a case of the 728i has to go before the E39 comes in? if so....i wouldn't bank on a particularly quick sale of these cars these days frown

would have been funny if i was looking for a 728i 6-7 months later than i did, huh hehe

A better clean engine bay pic:



Facelifted double VANOS 2.8 for a good price and a very well written/detailed walkaround (including minor items of bork) description of the car that few vendors in these murky waters would ever bother with. Speaks to being the sort of buyer and previous owner I'd be happier to deal with for such a punt.
Want! Mileage puts me off though.....

ETA jonny want to swap your 330 for my integra wink

My dad had one too back in 1990, it was the same colour as this, but it was a quattro and had air con. E290 HPF if anyone knows it..
