Arrow New South Australian owner 540iA

I thought it fair to post this as I have extensively scanned the E39 formus and have learned so much (possibly more than I wanted to know). I previously owned a 87' 735 for 14 years- it gave great service with much abuse. The cost of repairing it far exceeded its worth, so on a limited budget bought a Dec. 97' build local delivery 1 owner ithe 150km on the clock. It had been impecably serviced by the stealer with all the usual problem bits fixed. Great price- I love a bargain!
From these formus I realize the future expense, but will endevour to keep this amazing machine up to spec. Its all completely stock including the OEM wheels. I have got 60 profile tyres on it though and the speedo reads within 1-2 km/h at 100km.Will post a pix soon.
Many thanks to all you folk for the very BEST information I have seen for e39s!

G'day mate, always good to see another Aussie on the boards. Any chance of a pic of your new toy?

Thanks. Have noticed you here as an "Ol' Timer" Those wheels are the best. Mine has somewhat similar, but the std 16" oem. Just love them. There is a "Presence" the 7 series has that I miss with the 5 but it makes up with the "Sleeper" effect of a 5 with the 4.4
Pehaps you could advise on the best place to post an article I am preparing on the carriage or barn garage door auto opener I have constructed. Not many swing out doors left these days, but it may suit some folk.

The 7 is a BIG car, but it gets up and motors pretty well. I often wonder if I would have been better off with a 540, but my car has been good to me (pretty much) so far.

The FAQ & DIY section may be an appropriate spot for that sort of product.
