Since so little of them were built, I should get the data for them in a couple of hours, so check back.
Got the data for it.
9 - 1998-2000 BMW 523i Touring Manual (DR32) - RHD painted in Glacier Green Metallic (334) with English Green Flock Cloth (F6EG) interior were built.
The most rare option on your car is the option S339A - Shadow-Line. It was installed on 97 out of 573 cars.
P.S. Ask your friend for the photos of the interior. Would love to see how the Green cloth interior looks.
