I'm also on the hunt - I love my e34 touring, but the e39 just looks better to me.
Thats what I have... A 528iT/5 sport. It had the Style 5s on it when I bought it. I still have those and the M-sport wheels (M-Sports are on my e32)

I must say I love the 5speed. I actually passed up a 540it because the 528 was a manual. Its reasonably quick and I get between 25-32 MPG... NO complaints here!!

i have a 525iT and it's awesome - two baby seats in the back pretty much fills up the last row, but with the trunk, you can still shove a ton of stuff. if that's what you're looking for, i;ve seen others with a full stereo setup (woofer, rear channels, amp..etc). very versatile, sure as heck beats a minivan.

It looks like they posted a Black '99 540iT over the weekend.

If the milage is correct, they may have under priced it... but then again it may require some TLC.

It though it was but it looks like the Date on the add changes each day.

Pictures don't tell the whole story... I wonder why it hasn't sold.

Yeah a bit of TLC for sure, on the interior anyways, the seats are all dirty and worn.
