It's a bit more aggressive that's for sure. I'm looking forward to the cat delete.

Me too... question is e39 or e61? Due to current life situation I'll probably end up with a >= 2010 e61 mtech.

E39
But they are hard to find in good condition AND for a reasonable price

Yup most E39 Tourings are trashed around here. Mileage is way up, multiple owners, etc Only decent thing is you can pick up one for cheap that needs a lot of TLC and build it out to your liking

All true, but not as large as an E61... and that would add one more vehicle I'd have to do an NBT retrofit too. LOL

Unfortunately thats right
Had one before the E53: drove it 10 years, sold it last year.
I just had a look on the market some weeks ago: it was frustrating...

E61 was not an alternative for me - I don't like the design (interieur & exterieur) - looks like a pregnant whale from the side
Late and !nice! looking ones (M package, black or dark grey, yellow/creme leather) E61s are very rare and not much cheaper (at least here) if compared to a F11
