View Full Version : 5 Series 2003 540i M-Tech, 6spd, low milage, A RARE BEAUTY!!!

06-07-2011, 07:04 PM
I’m selling my 2003 BMW 540i, M-tech, 6spd, sterling grey, with only 96,000 Km. Original paint, clear title, NO accidents, NO stories!

As some of you may know, it is rare to find a 2003 540i M in 6spd. This fact coupled with the colour combination and condition, makes this car a unique opportunity for many to own. Just to give you an idea, there was only 60 2003 540i M-tech imported into Canada, among which, only a handful in 6spd.

I bought this car last summer (2010). It had almost 93,000 Km on it. The car was owned by an older gentleman who had the car services at Otto BMW here in Ottawa. The car was then bought by a luxury car ldealership, from where I bought the car. Before buying the car, I contacted Otto BMW with the VIN to ensure the car was services properly. I was pleased to hear that the car was serviced regularly until it was returned to Otto BMW. Of course, for confidentiality reasons, I was not able to obtain the service records. Since owning the car, I have babied it … flushed/changed all liquids, synthetic oil, buffed, leather treatment, new carpets, new battery, premium gas, etc. I have also put on new brakes (3000 km ago), brand new tires (200 km ago) - 275 Michelin Sports in the back, and 245 Eagle F1 in the front, and a brand new clutch (100 km ago). Receipts are available.

The car is in excellent condition in and out…. the pictures speak for themselves. Few options worth mentioning are the power rear sunshade and the two manual side-rear shades, and the fold-down seats. I will not mention the standard option this car comes within given the audience.

I put the car to sleep during last winter and it seems that the original owner didn’t drive it much, if at all, during the winter given it’s condition. It does have the usual stone chips (very few) and dead pixels. The wheels are in exceptional condition with a very small curb rash on the left front wheel.
I’m selling this beauty as I now have an opportunity to get my self into an M5 for a good deal. I’m in no hurry to sell as the M5 belongs to a relative in Florida and he is willing to hold it for me until next summer. As such, I want to free some cash to supplement the future purchase. Also, I have another 540i M (auto) and therefore can’t justify buying another E39 that “all look the same” to the wife.

I’m asking $19,800.00. This car needs nothing but another enthusiast!!!
I ask that you please respect my time and yours and that you refrain from any negative comments that will not serve the purpose of this add. With all due respect, I will not respond to any unreasonable offers. Serious inquiries only PLEASE.

If the car is not sold by the end of June 2011 through this forum, I will use alternate methods of solicitation. I can be contacted at (613) 868-9372 for any questions you may have.

Bump for a good guy who keeps his vehicles in immaculate condition. He lives in my neighbourhood and I've never EVER seen either of his cars in any condition but sparkling.
