    Almost exactly, right down to the rims. It's between one of these, or a new TSX, but I'm loving these the more I see them.

    Anyone happen to know what particular year and model this is, and about how much they go for nowadays in decent shape? :)

    Yes, although i'm not sure of the exact year or model, I just have a buncha saved 5-series pics.

    That's a 540i, a post 2001 model because of the lights.

    a brand new TSX will run you $29k, a 2 year old 540 will run you at least $35k.

    E39s are pretty expensive to purchase, maintain, and insure.

    I limited my looking to 2001s and newer though. :hs:

    I'm the other way around.

    2001 and below. :hs:

    It's still likely I will end up financing a TSX or picking up a used Grand Cherokee. :hs:

    Well, despite what I'd like to get, with the current shape my car is in, I foresee me getting a new one much sooner than I planned, and probably going for something that's significantly cheaper than any of my previous choices.
