Ask the seller to send pic of pedals.

NOVAX5.......if it is an SMG, the shifter knob will say "SMG". The picture is of a 6MT.......can't you see the gates?! Either that picture is not of the actual car, or the SMG is a typo.

Personally, I'd never buy a used car from a dealer that makes the leather and steering wheel so glossy and unnaturally shiny. It shows they just used Armor All on the entire interior and don't give a damn about actually taking car and prepping it correctly.

That is definately a 6sp manual.
It would suck if the dealer made the car more expensive since they are advertising it as an SMG....that could get them into big doo doo.
Also, did they not notice that the car is completly out of fuel? What if somebody wants to test drive it? I would not trust this dealer.....

dude.. where do you get your information?? Mcguire's and even Zaino offer interior leather and vinyl protection with UVA and UVB protection that will make it shiny.. it's not just armor all (not saying that the dealer didn't use armor all), you need to get your info straight before posting.

Either way, you shouldn't put any products on the steering wheel, unless you want it to slip out of you hand.

NOVAX5: I would skip this particular 530i.

I would guess there are literally hundreds of cars for sale, in that
species, at any given moment, here in the ol'US of A.

Hellsbells, there are a dozen+ for sale, every month in our
little Blue Ridge edition of the BMW CCA news.

Keep looking, and don't fall in love...
And, learn how to discern a MT6, or tell the CEO to learn
how to drive one.

Do you really think a dealer is going to use Zaino products?

Why would you want a steering wheel all shiny and slippery? It ought to look like new, day one leather. Last time I checked, I don't think new BMWs at the dealership had shiny leather anywhere.

Sans point was that it wasn't necessarily AA.

Um, if you can't tell that the particular pic is of a 6MT 530, then you & wifey should definitely stick to an automatic transmission IMO.

Agree with MD, there are tons of 530's for sale...just keep looking.

just because a leather protectant is shiny doesn't mean is slippery. Get a clue..BTW, my dealer uses Mcguiar detailing products.
