Question Your opinions on e39 530i

http://wwwb.autotrader.ca/a/BMW/5+Se...owcpo=ShowCPOi

Hi everybody

I'm looking at a 2003 530i with M Sport + Comfort Package, 131,845 km, grey on grey. 2 sets of tires at asking price.

They are asking $11,800. $10,900 Special. Car looks clean.

Is that overpriced? What would be a reasonable price for that kind of car?

What are your opinions and any advice is welcomed. Or if you know of any similar selling.

Thanks.

Can't help you with the price, but this is not an M-Sport package. That's a basic Sport package. Also those wheels seem like a replica.
I'm 90% sure there was no Premium package for the 530i in Canada.

Get the VIN and enter it here http://www.bmwarchive.org/vin/bmw-vin-decoder.html to see the options the car actually has.

To me, the price seems high for 10 year old car with aftermarket rims.
Most 530s are selling for 2-3 thousand LESS.

Ultimately, the buyer sets th price...

Non M-Sport, aftermarket rims, missing bleeder screw, almost sure it was repainted...Sure not worth $10K!!!

Good eye on that screw. And yeah, it is definitely a repaint. It is missing a VIN sticker on the trunk lid.

Thank you guys! It's good to have a few experts. I felt its overpriced and the rims weren't real.

I had a super clean blk/blk 528i Sport for many years and I was in love with her, she was my baby. Unfortunatly had to be total by the insurance because it was arsoned. That left me without my baby and on a search to replace my first car/love.

I've always loved the e39 so I would love to find a clean, well mantained 530i with the M Sport, but that seems to be hard with all the M "wanna-be".

So, the search continues...what about this one?

Thank you for your expertiese...

^^^That one is even worst...aftermarket bumper, lights, and poor front end repair/paint/fitment. Cheap wheels. I wouldn't even bother looking at it, unless its $3000, and looking for a beater.

Maybe just my eyes, felt like its sticking out a lot, maybe the angle of the picture.


Would this one be worth taking a look at?

The last one is BY far the best choice, from what i can see in the pictures. Might be worth looking at.

Finally getting on the right track lol

If i find others, I will share to read your insight.

Also, if you happen to come across a 530i that you feel is good and worth looking at PLEASE share.

Ask for maintenance records if they have them. Cooling system and CCV seem to go on the 530i so ask if and when it was replaced.

This car belongs to an ex-coworker. It's nice and worth the asking price, check it out.
