Research the two years on edmunds.com then go test drive both then decide. I would really say price or milage is a factor since they are so close. I would recomend maintenance records and a carfax.

all depending on the maintenance records, have dealer check them both out for you, then u know what ur getting into.both cars are the same.the 03 is a good deal if can get the price lowered. I was Service Manager at a BMW dealer when these models came out. The 530s were the best at the time, drove like a 3 series but bigger car. Also extremely reliable, rare to have them come in for repairs unless it was for routine maintenance.

The one with the manual is the one to choose. The slushbox is not what you want if you are planning on purchasing an E39. Mileage is irrelevant, especially on these vehicles. You will still have the same mechanical issues in time. What colors are you looking at? Personally, I am partial to Ti Silver ad Barritz or Monaco Blue.
