Steerpike is an unknown quantity at this point
After renting 5 series sedans on two different trips to Europe, we finally broke down and bought a 525i wagon of our very own! My question is (and my dealer isn't helping) do I have an E39 or an E60? It's a 2003 525iT, without the funky body line that's on the newest 5 series sedans.

Thanks
