I found some footage of my old BMW 530i which was sold to an Eastern European car breakers just under a year ago. This is my little (12 sec) tribute to a car that was bought second hand ten years old, was tatty and often abused, but which gave me 50,000 miles of driving pleasure in complete comfort. Despite a 3 litre naturally aspirated late 90's petrol engine, I never returned less than 32mpg on my combined cycle - perhaps helped by that rarest of things in an e39, a manual gearbox.
