Like all cars, it comes down to how they are maintained, or not. The E39 is a well regarded platform, but check the service history, number of previous owners, how long this owner has had it for, all the normal stuff you should do before you buy a used car.

You are doing the right thing though, educate yourself about the car you are looking to buy and don't rush into buying the first car you see.

There are plenty of members that are more familiar with this model than I, so expect others to offer up their thoughts as well.


Riding in style

Thanks for the reply brettski.

As i am on the Gold Coast, Australia, i have heard of cars that were involved in the january floods in Brisbane being sold around the coast,brisbane and even sydney and melbourne.

So i have to watch out which ones i look at.
