For many enthusiasts that read this blog, the E39 BMW 5 series is revered as the consummate sport sedan before BMW went crazy with i-Drive and funky styling. The fact that E39 series sedans are readily available with manual transmissions in both 6 cylinder and V8 format makes them even more attractive to enthusiasts. But when is the last time you saw a 5 series wagon with a manual transmission. And one with less than 60,000 miles? Here’s one available in Pennsylvania.
The seller states:
2000 BMW 528iT Wagon, 5 speed. Sunroof, leather, heated seats, BMW Dealer serviced.
Given the cost of SUVs these days, this 5 series wagon offers a nice combination of style, utility and performance for a very reasonable price. Given what these cost new, this is an immense bargain and the proven mechanicals should provide years of blissful service. If I needed something more commodious than a sedan, this car would get my vote.
