31000 Miles - 1 Lady Owner
Unique Investment BMW
Presents As A Virtual New Car
Detailed 143 Image Portfolio

The Ultimate Modern Classic
The best of what is left of the E39 cars are slow burbling Modern Classics
and truly excellent prestige saloons. Setting this car widely apart from other
E39s is the fact its not a flashy model thats been passed about half a dozen
times and painted as regular as a council corridor. To the contrary, a tasteful
SE model with the silky smooth 6 cylinder engine, a rare paint finish and
contrasting leathers and wood.
This 20 year old BMW is probably the best used car I have ever owned, a bold
statement considering the length and breadth of my car ownership experience.
The originality is captivating, pure and simple, as soon as I walked round it I
had to own it, the occasions that has happened are few and far between, the
condition is to coin an old trade phrase "Double Dye Mint", as is the
cars story, a very special BMW.

Pre delivery inspected and first registered by Dunedin BMW of Edinburgh to the
one and only keeper a Mrs Gordon of Inverkeithing on 03 01 1998. The original
sales order form dated 11 08 1197 details the desired specification and the on
the road price of £29,366.48. This was inclusive of number transfer fee for
cherished number A100 WM which has been on the vehicle since and stays
with the car.

A very low 31,000 miles over the course of 20 years, this has been a garaged car
and one of the owners parting comments was " its virtually never been out in the
rain as if it were raining i never took it out". The couple have been devoted to
their BMW, one of two, it presents dare I say still "as new". Mr Gordon was a
lifelong senior engineer with Caterpillar, old school engine man concerned with
the oily bits and his care was better than any dealer network could ever hope to
offer. The car is perfect to the last detail.

Condition - So Good, very difficult to illustrate with pictures
Cosmetically as the pictures bear testament to it is in excellent glossy order
its 20 years, the paint is superb with a wet look finish. Details I have tried
illustrate in the image gallery, its fine details such as unmarked seatbelts and
bolsters, immaculate engine boot carpets engine bay and switchgear. The car
sublime, it has a fine unused feel and an almost tangible depth to the
that is lost today. A study of the underside reveals a dry corrosion free car
is excellent. Original dealer plates and factory original throughout. One that
much has to be seen and driven to be fully appreciated. This car has been
with a passion and carefully used cleaned and stored. All bushes and bearings
are are
as tight as the day it was new.
The cabin remains 100 % box fresh with very clean leathers which should suit
even the
fussiest of tastes, the drivers seat is very straight as pictured, the rear and
area barely used, and the foot wells and rears of the seats and the mats are all
and unspoiled. Everything in full working order. A car can cover a mile in
ways. Some cars can be cleaned and cleaned over the course of a few days and
still only manage to look a percentage of this, the difference here is this one
never got dirty.
