E39 Touring manual
 
Unicorns I tell ya.
Im looking for e39 touring with a manual trans... later model, 6 cylinder. M sport a + but not needed.

Ive toyed with the idea of auto but Id rather not. There are two up right now locally ,auto ,kind of eh condition and older. I doubt this will even help but I thought Id toss out a line and see.

what's your budget?, Fil(Eurostyle) is selling his E39 Wagon with S62 & 6speed swap, give him a PM.

SiR 09-13-2013 04:08 PM

ive pm'd him many times about tourings(since he has so many relatively speaking). He doesnt seem keen on pm'ing me back.

but I suspect his is way out of my price range....but some of the others he has kicking around could be viable.


thanks for the heads up.

Calling him multiple times is the best way to reach him. Keep calling until you get through.

thanks for the tip. Even if he has one that needs some massaging(within reason) to be worthy for the road Id probably be down if its manual and the right price. :)

he has a topaz blue one thats pretty hawt

You are right about the unicorn part. They are indeed very rare. Manual E39 Tourings were only available as 528i(1999-2000) and as 525i(2001-2003).

BMW built 740 528i and 570 525i for North America.
Canada got 22 528i and 12 525i.

As of right now, those 528i are in:

Alberta - 6
Quebec - 3
Ontario - 12 (1 Unrebuildable title, 1 Salvage)
BC - 1

525i are in:

Ontatio - 10 (1 Salvage)
Alberta - 2

You can also forget about factory M-Sport. On Tourings it was only available on 540i

I just bought one. :)
I guess I should hold on to it though.

How you come up with all that info is just :eek::eek:*th-up*

But I gotta disappoint;
From the 12 528it's, we scrapped 3...so only 9 left. And from the 10 525it's, my mechanic has one, and we are parting another, so 8 left! *th-up*

So in total, I have about 1/4 of the Tourings in Ontario!!!:D

I didn't message back because they are WAY too far gone! Unless you want to put a ton of $$$ into them, and at that point might as well buy a clean 540it...Seen a few in the $10K range, and its worth it IMO, they might even go up in price in the next few years when they get impossible to find!!!*wave*

I figured as much but how gone is gone? I really think you are my only hope to find what I am looking for.

Im a handy gent and wouldnt mind something that needed some work. Really anything I buy will likely need some bushings here and there anyways(among other stuff). Obviously a running car with engine and trans thats still there would be what I am after if you have something...with 17 kickin around another car that can run shouldnt be hard to find/put together?


10k is really more than I am wanting to spend.And as mentioned Id rather have a 6 cylinder with the manual compared to a 540 auto...ya I know v8's are win but Id just rather have the 6 for cost of running,ease to wrench on etc.

I dont NEED m sport...I really just want the m5 steering wheel. Id prefer the 525i MY02/03.

Pretty easy. Archive of BMW build sheets + Autocheck does wonders :)

525i Touring with a regular Sport Package did come with the M5 steering wheel.

8 out of 12 Canadian 525i Touring had Sport Package

SiR 09-16-2013 09:59 AM

So there it is.

How far is too far gone? I realize your business is to part out cars...but with tourings being a limited run how many folks are buying touring parts when there arent that many out there?

Yes I know many parts are identical to the sedan but with you hoarding that many tourings :) there has to be a few in there that arent that far off from being usable/"sellable".

525it with a manual and sport package. <3

SiR 09-17-2013 11:41 AM

:( :( :(

Could I come out and see you what have?

Quack 09-17-2013 12:39 PM
