2002 BMW 530i

Of all of the BMWs that have come and gone over the last two decades, the E39 5 series happens to be one of my favorite, ranking right up there with the E38 7 series and iconic M Coupe. While there are still a good number of clean, low mileage M5s circulating around, these come with a high price. However, if you are willing to sacrifice a bit of performance but maybe want something a bit more tame and reasonable on the wallet for daily use, this 530i for sale in Florida should work just nicely. Finished in Blue Water Metallic and sitting on Style 42 alloys, this low mileage beauty is bound to make some Bimmer enthusiast happy.

If there’s one thing that I wish sellers would stop doing is putting their vehicle descriptions in ALL CAPS. It’s distracting and makes it appear as if a serial killer is selling the vehicle. Believe me, if we’re featuring the car here on GCFSB, we know its special. Now that I’ve gotten that minor gripe out of the way, on to the 530i at hand. Even though it’s saddled with a slushbox, I love this car. The color, the wheels, the condition, everything. The 530i was always a bit of a dark horse in the later US E39 lineup, as it seems more people opted for the entry level 525i, or went all out with the 540i or M5. For me, the 530i was the Goldilocks 5 series, just enough power with less weight over the front axle with the ubiquitous M54 inline-6. The asking price here represents a little bit of a premium in light of the low miles, but considering that similar vintage M5s are hard to source in good condition for under $15,000, the 530i represents the chance to enjoy a classic 5 series sedan with a bit of a sporting edge at a considerable discount.

  1. Wow, no mention of the accident history on Carfax? I wouldn’t go too gaga on a e39 with damage to the A pillar.

  2. Agreed. I applaud the seller for including such detailed pics – at least you can see the less than perfect panel fits at the left front corner. I once owned an E90 335i in this color and while I am not a blue car guy this shade grows on you after awhile.

  3. Way to many cheap E39s out there in good to excellent condition to go that high of $$$.
    Hell, you can buy 3 1997-2000 540i’s with 6speeds at that price. 🙂

  4. All the nit picking issues that develop on a 540i’s V8 will drive you nuts. Better to stick with the I6

  5. After lusting for an E39 540 for years, I test drove one of these with the I6 and was amazed at how more agile and responsive it felt. So less bloated. It really spoke to me.

    Unfortunately, the subject car was previously owned by the world’s heaviest chain smoker and the car was absolutely fouled with smoke odor.
