^ That was me.* Sorry.

Anyways, I have two of 'em.* I have a '01 525it with 205k miles.* My daily driver.* I've had to address the typical E39 problems: thrust arm bushings / control arms, rear subframe bushings (they take a lot of punishment on the Touring), cooling system overhaul, an alternator last year, plus normal maintenance.* That's over 5 years and 120k miles.* Right now it's pretty well sorted out and running well.* I plan on keeping it for as long as possible.* They don't make 'em like the E39 anymore.

I also have a '07 530xi with 80k miles.* My wife's daily driver.* Only things besides maintenance that I've had to do since I got it has been the front brakes and the electric water pump last summer.* It's pretty soft ride compared to the E39, but a nice car to cruise around in.

Very glad I haven't had to replace any window regulators.* I had three go on my old B5 A4.* What a PITA to fix...
