Looks about the same vintage as my own 2000 540i, still a low-miler  
with less than 125 kmiles. What year and model is your 5er?
BTW, when I ordered my car and took delivery of it in Muenchen 10  
years ago come October, I did so?of course!?to honor my German  
ancestry too?my Ritter forbear came over in the 1680s, fleeing I  
suppose from some creditor (or angry husband!).
