1999 BMW 528i H5 2.8 Hartge

A super-rare 3 owner Hartge H5 E39 with just 56,550 miles.


Converted by Birds Garage from new in 1999, our 528i was built with the full H5 specification (see below) including the Switch-logic semi-auto gearbox. A V8 was fitted to the car but when the 1st owner pulled out of the build the original 2.8i lump was put back in. The car was never delivered. The car was then purchased from Birds by the second owner in January 2001. The service book shows seven stamps and a PDi stamp from Cuntz Speyer in Germany from before it arrived in the UK. The first three stamps are from Birds and the last by us. The car will come with a new MOT for the next owner. We have performed a minor restoration on the car to bring it back to its former glory. Work includes four new Dunlop tyres, full wheel refurb, new discs and pads all round, lower front ball joints, camshaft and crankshaft sensors, gearbox service, new mats, new wipers, new keys, new key transponders, radiator cowl, induction pipes, new windscreen and rubbers and cowl, new kick panels, drivers door rubber, a/c re-gas, oil and filter, all parking dents removed and full paint correction. The car now looks and performs beautifully.

The interior is very clean and tidy and the leather still looks good. Under the bonnet is very clean as is the boot area. Headlamps are clear and there is no rust visible on the car.
