I know what you're going to say, "Hey, what about the 2003 540i?" I'm actually not a fan of that garish (IMHO) nose treatment that BMW put on the 2003 540i 6-Speed models, so they're not under consideration.
You ALMOST knew what I was about to say.... actually my comment was going to be that I bet the rather overdone nose of the '03 would be an issue... I know it is the least favorite view of my car for me. It is also a bit of a pain - fortunately for my wallet my corporate driver training (from years ago) mandated backing in to parking spaces, so I have done that for years, otherwise that low front clip would be toast 10 times over!

Great minds, it seems, think along similar patterns.

Shipo if you are looking for some good E39s, go see my friends in Chichester.

Yeah, I browse their site on a fairly regular basis as they always seem to have a number of 540i 6-Speeds in stock. When the time comes, if they've got what I want, I'll be giving them a visit as they aren't even an hour away.

Fascinating that neither carry a single '03 530SP - e39's are out there, but guess owners like me aren't too rushed to sell!

Yeah, and a "well equipped" second-hand 335i Sport is impossible to come by as well. I did notice that Auto Sports by the Lake has an '06 550i and an '07 335i Sport for the exact same price! Who in their right mind would choose a 335i over a 550i for the same money?

Well I always wanted a 5 series but I couldn't pull the trigger on a 08. I also needed the Xi.
2006 CPO 530xi Sedan
Every Single Option available (some not needed like motorized rear shade)
Only missing piece is Satellite receiver but it is wired for it
The car was owned by a dealer, it has a small blemish on carfax...it hit a garbage can and needed cosmetic repair. I saw the repair bill to confirm it was cosmetic only.
I am ecstatic, pick up tomorrow...
