Si's E39 Saloon project.

Post by cockneyrebel » 28 Sep 2017, 09:36

Right Guys/Girls I will be bidding farewell to Yibi soon and finding a 39 with the spec I want is proving quite difficult, so if you could keep a look out for me it'll be appreciated,
Colour.. Not really fussy but not white please,
Engine/Model.. 523 /528
Interior.. Has to be black
Distance.. South of England if poss, but could travel for a goodun.
Thanks for looking, Si.

3.0 engine is the best option
I've been looking myself but the only cars I've seen that are worth buying are over priced so I know the problem your having

I'm looking at alpina's now
Life's to short to be driving boring cars

It's a 525, but I'll have Tom with me, so I'm sure a good arrangement will be made. :d
