HISTORY FILE
Supplied new by BMW Main Dealer, Taylors of Boston, first registration took place on 1st August 1996.  The first and only owner, BMW enthusiast Mr Dennis Coxen, covered a mere 32,647 miles and the original V5 document lists zero former keepers.  A new car sales invoice and factory specification print out confirms the price paid of £28,221 less a part exchange allowance of £14,000 for his BMW E34 525i SE.  Subject to CBS, (Condition Based Servicing), the service book displays eight stamped entries, (five from the supplying Dealer), with the most recent being January 2019 at Sycamore BMW of Peterborough.  An insight into the fastidious owner is that he stipulated an oil and filter change on the running-in inspection despite not being a requirement by BMW! The A5 leather wallet also contains the dealer supplied book packs, manuals, user guides and point of sale literature.  Two sets of remote keys and an original sales brochure and option pamphlet complete the history file along with previous MOT certificates, maintenance invoices and BMW service check sheets.

To drive a low mileage and cosseted E39 BMW is a true motoring delight, with the manufacturer’s claim of creating the Ultimate Driving Machine clearly justified.
