*RIP* Another Bimmer

Hey picked this up just over a week ago. Just over 143ks on it.

Quick Specs...
Model: 540i
Gearbox: Tiptronic

Seems to have every option available for a non-m sport model and everything works except tape player. Needs a couple of little things done to tidy it up but otherwise very happy with it.

To do list...
- Replace rocker cover seals (one done, other one to be done when I get time)
- Think i'll do the sump gasket sometime to as it's got a wee bit of oil on it.
- Clean up headlights, may clean the lenses up but if that doesn't work il have to source something cos they are truely awful in their current state.
- get front left wheel cleaned up, bit of curbing on it, nothing major but annoys me.

Future stuff/Being fussy
- M sport steering wheel
- Exhaust (got priced today should be on within a couple of weeks)
- Respray front lip, clearcoat coming off on drivers corner from smackin something as you can see in pic
- Something with the stereo, the standard sounds let the whole styling of the car down.
- Vinyl wrap the woodgrain in silver

Otherwise I think il leave it alone, have enough other things on the go and just want a reliable tidy daily.

Very nice pickup my friend :) I wish I had the money to go the 5 series route for my daily a couple of years ago, they are very nice cars.

Cheers. Yeah it is very nice to drive, handles pretty good for a tank and not to bad on gas either.

Haha engine looks like a right prick to work on but nothing to scary in there. 1998, so it's missing the angel eyes of the later models. But all in good time!
