E39 528i Touring 5sp manual for sale



Reliable daily driver, but needs work to get it back to top condition. I was going to work on it this spring but I found something more interesting to drive. Would be a good fit for someone looking for a unique project car.

Rare Factory 5 speed manual
M sport bumpers - real ones... front has some wicked cracks... I was going to repair it.
495,000 km - but certainly doesn't seem like it's ready to die.
Rust here and there - Hatch is pretty bad. I was going to repair it again and wrap it.
Engine and tranny seem fine. shifter is super sloppy - needs bushing replaced. 5th gear is sticky when super cold out.
Shocks - I think they could be replaced, but my wife can't tell. Diff mount is making that clunk noise. Got a replacement bushing - just got to install it.
Steering rack works fine, but is worn in the center - presumably because of the mileage. Clunk noise going over slow big bumps. Otherwise OK
I broke the sunroof - did something stupid to it... got the spare part, just need time to install.
CEL - secondary air flow...pump works. I was going to try changing the valve.
Vanos Seals - needs to be done, but seems to drive OK except for the idle hunting during warm up.
A/C Hvac is fine...not even a noisy blower!
Driver seat heater has a broen trace... I was going to fix that too. Otherwise interior is decent.
Rear Susp air bags done recently. Subframe bushings "reparied"
Brakes - prolly need changing all around.

Make an offer....

Sure... you want pix of what it was like when I first restored it, or NOW to see how much work you're getting into?
