    Aluminium front suspension might need more than a rub down. Multilink rear will need a complete rebuild at least. Lots of sensors will need replacing.
    Yes, for a pro or very keen amateur, there’s the possibility of money in that if £6k is the purchase price, but as soon as you need to pay for help it’s bye bye profit, and another unfinished project on the market.

    The advert said for spares. I’d agree.

    I know my mind works in an odd manner but to me the title says eighties Leica with a pre war screw lens adaptor.

    Basically, if Munich Legends won't take a punt on getting it up to A1 spec and selling it for an arm and a leg, it's basically a shed. Chances are that like many E39s it's got terminal rot and ask yourself, why has it been sat there with 60k on the clock? Answer, the engine's FUBAR. If you think you can fix all of that and turn a profit selling it £25k, buoyant E39 market or not, fill your boots.

    If that's being sold by Hexagon, it'll be, what, £30k?

    Same period, but 10 years ahead in looks and now about half the price of the M5.


    Soz, I don't get the M5 at all. I didn't realize they had got so collectable either, I guess based on the V engine?

    I'll spend 13 on the M3, you spend 25 on that. Everybody happy.

    Mike sums up everything I don't like in a certain group of people, all mouth with no discernible skills. Basically Soylent Green in waiting.

    Please stop posting pictures of him, the urge to punch the screen can only be contained up to a point.
