    Time has come to sell my e39 drift car , Ive built this up over last 3 years and tbh i dont really wanna sell but i need to get the money to put towards a deposit and drift cars and saving dont seem to work at the same time.

    Car started life as a Manual 1998 535i se 5 series and the mix of a 530i Mport 2001 that i mixed the parts to get the best from both. its had plenty of work done to it to make it a very easy car to drift. With it being the smaller v8 i fitted a low ratio diff from a 530i auto ( i think ) i cant remember the exact ratio but this car has a very low ratio setup on it. top speed is around 130 which can make it a bit of a pain on the motorway as your pretty high up in the rev's on a run. But round a track its perfect.

    Spec

    Suspension & Brakes

    Hsd Coilovers (Around 5k)
    Modified front knuckles (specially made)
    Custom lockstops to stop over center
    Powerflex Black series Front lower tie bar to chassis
    M sport brakes fitted on front ( much bigger than stock )
    Low ratio diff 3.46 i believe
    Recent 4 wheel laser alignment (drift setup)

    Engine

    Stock engine
    Spark plugs and oil changed 5k ago
    Gen Bmw camshaft sensor changed 4 months ago
    52mm Alloy rad fitted
    Electronic thermostat fan control
    1 x Large electric fan (switch inside)
    Rocker cover gaskets changed 5k ago
    Gen Bmw Thermostat 5k ago
    Standard exhaust had silencers and tip changed (Cats left in otherwise would be too loud)


    Wheels and tires

    17 x 8.5j Rondell 58 ( could do with a minor refurb ) or Borbet A 17 x 8.5j with 4 very good tyres
    20mm Hubcentric front spacers
    50mm Hubcentric superforma rear spacers
    4 x yoko parada spec 2 tyres 205/40/17 ( 2 almost brand new and 2 5k ago )


    Interior

    2 x Cobra Imola seats ( Out of fia ) very good condition
    obp hydro handbrake (extra big handbrake , clears the dash)
    Driftworks hydro lines
    Steering boss
    Nardi steering wheel (not sure if its real as i got it with another car so assume its a copy to be safe)
    2 x 3 inch TRS 4 point harness ( Out of fia )
    Stripped out rear and boot
    Bootlid lightened
    Switch for fan

    Exterior

    Bolt on rear arches
    Rear wings cut out bent up and welded together (Sealed to stop rust)
    M sport front and rear bumpers (some damage and repairs done to them
    Facelift front lights and bonnet
    Repainted in a matt grey
    Front and rear bumper quick release things (forgotten what they are called)

    Sum it up this is a very capable drift car , Has no problem drifting every other week . very reliable engine and suspension set-up, been drifting it for 2 years pretty much at least once a month with no problems and car is mot'd for 11 months i believe

    Bad bits

    Paint work is ok nothing special but if you come expecting a show car you will be disappointed
    Both rear jacking points have been cut out and had plates welded in . Never been to much of a issue as i use the diff when drifting. Car has covered 170,000 miles but you wouldn't know it to drive it

    Spares

    If the car goes for close or the money i want i will include a entire front end (minus headlights) preface lift
    2 x spare diffs (1 x 535i manual diff , 1 x 530i Manual welded diff)
    5 x drift rims

    Money wise i was looking for around 3.5k which i think is fair with the spec and the manual box etc . I might be open to part ex for a decent jap daily plus cash my way . Car is Located in Bournemouth

    If i dont get much interest it will be broken for parts , Such a shame if i have to break it
