Billionairebum's E60 530d
Hello

I finally took ownership of this fantastic 5ver this weekend. Car is really clean and well looked after. 2009 E60 530d|Xenon|Msport|Black leather interior|PDC. I really am a big fan of the E60 shape and the added space really does help. Thanks to Sash for answering a few questions I had.

Maintenance already done:
  1. Gearbox was replaced(motorplan) at 95000km and gearbox oil service done at 190.
  1. Control arms and steering rack replaced.
  1. Turbo rebuilt.
  2. Engine and gearbox mounts replaced.

TO DO: Tyres, Intercooler, Software.

Very nice bud. Well done. Still one of the best 5ers to buy as far as I'm concerned. Happy motoring.

RE: Billionairebum's E60 530d
Michelin PS4 245/40/18 were put on all round, I had them on my Sportline and was very happy so it made sense to put them on the 530d.

Secondly, the intercooler was replaced and I found a non OEM seal with some gasket sealer slapped on. A quick message to @Sash also confirmed that it was not something I missed and was not correctly done.
