I absolutely love this car and I will be sad to see it go. I will have to replace my daily beater at some point with something more fun to make up for the lack of BMW.

Some lady coming from Kapuskasing a day early for a meeting so she can see the car.

Bump for the weekend.

I seriously thought there would be more interest in the car. Only two e-mails from kijiji so far.

Not going to get an E39 wagon? I dread the day I have 3 kids which means the wagon can stay... 2 max with these cars. If there's ever 3 kids I am going to get a Land Cruiser to hell with the gas prices.

I love the E39 wagon! But with the amount of travel we do a van is very convenient. Whoever is not driving will be sitting in the very back entertaining both kids. I thought about an SUV, even test drove a few. My wife has hip problems so her turning around all the time wouldn't happen.

I have thought about it long and hard and unfortunately the van is the way to go for us. I will put it to goo use that's for sure, no more calling friends to use their pick up trucks to move things.

Yeah, when you have those kind of requirements it makes sense. Good luck.

Need new rear brake line flex hoses for safety. I have them in hand and they will be done.

Apparently it won't pass safety check without the fog light either. Funny how it "passed" when I bought it and it didn't have a fog light. Also have this already and it will be replaced.

And finally the driver's side mirror is discolored and will be replaced.

So it will be certified.

I need this gone soon.
$8,900 takes it
after I replace the items above of course.

free bump - but if you need a van, let me know - family members own one of the larger used family vehicle dealerships in the GTA. Over 250 cars stocked...

I doubt I'll travel anywhere to get a vehicle, but shoot me a link.

Thanks!
