 Up for auction here is my 2001 51 plate BMW E39 530d, that I have owned for just over 2 years. It has been ultra reliable and never let me down! It is finished in Titan silver with full black leather trim. It is the SE model so fully loaded.

I bought it in 2012 with 111k miles on, and now done just over 132k miles. It is very powerful and pulls like a train, yet remaining economical too!

It's MOT'd until April next year and Taxed until the end of October this year. It comes with all receipts for bits I've done on it (including a service last year, suspension drop links exhaust flexi's etc) and some old MOT's, with VOSA print out to confirm genuine mileage, but I have no service history prior to my ownership. I also had the inlet swirl flaps replaced, along with new fuel pressure switch just after I got it.

The car was recorded as a Cat C insurance loss in 2009 due to damage on the rear offside quarter, but was fully repaired.

Last year some one scraped the near side (just the doors) so I replaced these, and drivers ones , for ones from a mint E39 M sport also in Titan silver. I also put on the genuine M Sport front and rear bumpers, boot spoiler and genuine 17inch staggered M sport wheels from the same car. The colour match was virtually spot on so none were painted, and the door gaps are the best I could get (no leaks). The pictures speak for themselves. It's a bright presentable car, has the odd light scratch here and there and very small amount of rust around the boot lock. Wheels are in good condition, rear tyres are new, front have a couple thousand miles left. It has upgraded Angel Eye headlights also.

The car drives very well, pulls very well through all gears, changes up and down without any issue. Has the switchable Sports mode as well as tiptronic change, as well as normal auto change.

The interior is full black leather, generally in good condition with small amount of wear. ALL the equipment works axactly as it should, including: Dual zone climate control, heated fully electric memory seats, cruise control, Front and rear parking sensors, auto dimming rear mirror, elec windows, central locking, elec mirrors remote steering radio funtion etc etc... The only fault (if you can call it that) is the driver seat button is loose, but all works fine.

Only other faults I can think of are, it has a crack in the left hand side of the screen just above the tax disc (always passed MOT and not really bothered me) the bonnet 'kidneys are a loose and could do with changing, and the central locking only works on the door key.

Any questions please ask.

This will be strictly cash on collection only. I will require a £100 deposit via paypal within 24hours of the auction end - no exceptions. If you arrive and dis-agree with my description there will be no hard feelings and I'll refund the deposit, but as you'll see from my feedback I describe everything as it is.

UK bidders only, anyone with any less feedback than a 5 email me to discuss prior to bidding as I will not be messed about.

 All, due to a number of questions already asked hopefully I can clarify...

There is no buy it now price sorry. I am away at the moment so not about to secure a sale before Friday. I have set a reserve as am not giving it away, it will sell for what ever it makes on auction.

It drives fine, has a slight whine from a rear bearing, but has been like this since i've owned it and never bothered me...not that bad at all, but it's there and i'm being honest. Pulls as it should, handles as it should and stops as it should. All the ESP and traction control works. All gears change up and down fine, in auto sport or tiptronic.

Body work is ok, has a couple of scratches as I've said - 1 on the nearside rear quarter about 4 inches long (will probably polish out and can just be seen in the pictures) and a couple of light ones on the front offside wing, minor marks on the front and rear bumpers being critical. Doors are lined up as best I can and not that bad, and colour match is pretty good as you can see but not 100%. These were complete from the M Sport including the upper window surrounds and black mouldings. Also fitted brand new front fog lights at the same time.

Just noticed one of the front mud flaps is missing...

No service history prior to me owning it.

I spent about £600 on the swirl flap conversion, new fuel pressure switch and rail just after I got it.

Hope this helps.
