1998 Blue BMW Wanted

West Sussex, United Kingdom


BMW 528i Touring (E39) SE **SOLD - Similar Wanted**

**1 Oxford Professor Owner to 2018** FULL DEALER SERVICE HISTORY, MOT'd August 2020, £6,000+ of Options - Supplied new by North Oxford Garage, it was owned from new by an Oxford Professor until his death in 2018 and then briefly passed to a member of his staff. The BMW has a stunning Main Dealer Service History with 16 stamps, the last at 80,000 miles. The BMW was serviced with North Oxford BMW up until 2011 and then sent to St. Leonards Toyota where the Professor sent his Toyota Land Cruiser to be serviced. The car was professionally valeted every week up until his death in 2018 which perhaps goes to explain the remarkable condition that this car is in. There is not a scratch on the interior plastics and the wood totally un-faded. Without doubt, this is a close as it gets to a new E39 inside! The BMW was also unusually spec'd from new with M-Sport Suspension, very rare for an early SE shape car, and given the upgraded M-Sport Front Leather Seats, only usually seen on Sport models. The BMW also sits on the correct Pirelli P6000 tyres, all of which are in excellent condition.
This BMW Touring includes a formidable specification including - Full Sports Leather Black Interior (£1,450), M-Sports Suspension, M-Sports Multi-Function Steering Wheel (£645), Electric Sunroof (£695), Rain Sensor Wipers (£395), Electric Boot realise with Soft Close (£390), Electric Auto-dimming Mirrors (£290), Dual-Zone Driver & Passenger’s Climate Control (£450), Headlight Wash (£280), Extended Storage Pack (£350), Standard – Cruise Control, 15” Alloy Wheels, Trip Computer, Front Fog Lights, Temperature Gauge, Air Conditioning, Traction Control, Electronic Brake Distribution, ABS, Power Steering, HPI clear.
Sold with a recent MOT to August 2020, this superb 5-Series Touring has wanted for nothing and drives exactly as you would expect. The 5-Series (E39) Touring remains rightly highly sought after and cars in this condition are rare indeed. The last time we sourced one similar to this was three years ago and this is without doubt superior in every way. This top-of-the-range example has almost every conceivable option present on the car and is one of the highest spec examples we have ever encountered. The bodywork of the car defies its age and the leather interior is virtually unmarked. All 4 cupholders remain as new in this car, front and rear, a common fault with the E39. The interior plastics are unmarked and the wood trim is not scratched or faded whatsoever. The car comes complete with its original bookpack, service book, boot tool-kit, glovebox torch and 3 keys all present and correct. It drives superbly well and performs as effortlessly and smoothly as you would expect from this E39 shape BMW. The automatic tiptronic gearbox works smoothly and changes up and down as desired and the steering is beautifully weighted. Costing more than £46,000 new, this 5-Series is utterly unrepeatable and now represents an outstanding opportunity for the discerning enthusiast or collector. We are based Nr. Goodwood, West Sussex.
