G60 Leather Steering Wheel also included.

While i had the engine out i checked the cam chain tension and the checked the cams for any sign of wear and they are absolutely perfect, the engine now runs very tight and the car is an absolute rocket. I drove the car for about 2 weeks before the power steering rack packed in, I also bought an e39 m sport at the time so this car has had no use. I have sourced and fitted a replacement power steering rack so nothing to worry about there anymore.

Oil cooler replaced prior to my ownership

Alarm with immobiliser & remote central locking. New alarm siren fitted by previous owner. New key fob & batteries.

Uprated lighting loom & relays, including Philips & Osram bulbs to all front lights.

Lower foglight replaced with original Hella (because the bulb holder had broken).

Slight laqueur peel on passenger side around windows. (Passenger side resprayed oak-green-ish, Aug 2008 because of some parking dings that were beginning to rust.)

German style plates, Silver on black & standard plastic also with the sale

Body was waxoiled Aug 2008. Very, very little rust.

Wheels / Tyres:
Original 15" BBS RA's, with very good Vredestein tyres.

Bad Bits:
Tax & NCT are currently out.

Last NCT test called up small stuff, brake balance controller, handbrake and headlight alignment was out, the work that I have done would have addressed all this.

When i was working on the car I got hold of a brand new power steering rack that had been sitting on a shelf for a number of years. What i hadnt realised was that the seals had perished and the rack leaked.

As i said above the rack has been swapped out and the rack mount bushes were replaced at the same time, car will have to go in for wheel alignment and camber.

I also think the ISV may need to be replaced, when you start the car it idles fast but if you tap the throttle it drops to its correct idle speed.

The only reason i'm selling the car without finishing it is because I simply dont have the time to finish the car at the moment and the e39 is taking up most time and alot of my money at the moment :D and I would rather focus on that car.

I'm going to put a price of 2900 on the car. Consider the spec, work done and everything included i think its quite reasonable.
