David here. I'm looking for a 2003 e39 530i with a manual transmission and sport package. I'm also looking at the '97-'98 528i with sport package and manual transmission. Either car should have less than 80,000 miles on it. I realize I can't be too picky because the number of manual transmission cars is so small and I'm not really a fan of black either. My spare car died so I'm in the market for another car. My '85 e28 535i will become the new spare car; I'm looking to get a newer model. I'm a club member but I have to get a hold of the main office to figure out why I can't match this user name up with my membership. On a side note, does anyone know if the passenger airbag can be depowered for children sitting in the front seat on the e39? I live in the Los Angeles area but am willing to consider cars outside my area. Please PM me if you have a lead on a car that fits these specs. Thanks everyone.
