Talk of M5 and E63 wagons is great and all, but those are essentially unicorns. Due to our country’s general aversion to the eminently practical and awesome wagon bodystyle, beggars can’t really be choosers and compromises must be made when buying a wagon. For many, a manual might just be a higher priority than the 540i’s V8. Today’s inline-sixed 5er wagon lets you row it yourself, which would help you forget the wagon’s association with family and concentrate on the fun parts. It’s covered a lot of miles as a commuter, but with just one diligent owner who had no problem addressing any service needed, this could be a great deal.

177,000 miles is the main question here, but the description does a great job reassuring that, while there will always be maintenance on the horizon with this many miles, anything that needed to be done thus far was taken care of and done properly. It looks extremely good inside and out, underscoring the care and gentle handling present for its entire life. Bidding is hot but not high, and this may be an opportunity to snag a versatile and great E39 for less than most of the E30s we’ve been seeing!
