Selling my baby, only if i get the asking price for it. $12.500

The car is BMW 540i 6spd manual with 124.000km. The is the cleanest example of E39 locally, enthusiast owned, always maintained.

All the problems that are common (and expensive) have been taken care of: radiator, water pump, expansion tank, thermostat, clutch fan, control arms.

Car has always been winter stored, NO RUST!

Recently did a top end reseal : valve cover gaskets, intake manifold gaskets. At the same time also did a pre-vanos intake manifold and a tune done by BimmerSport Automotive.

Suspension: Koni Yellows at all four corners, GC sleeves, Eibach springs, 500lb/in front, 350lb/in rear (stock suspension can also be included).

Wheels DO NOT come with the car, but another set (style 32s) with very good tires will be included.

Car has a stock DSP system (original amp and sub), iPod/iPhone integration. B&M short shifter and much more.

The car will come safetied and E-tested.

No test pilots.

i dont think wheels have anything to do with the sale of this car, and if somebody really wants them with the car, they can have them for extra $, plus 2 of them need to be refinished.

This car looked great on my previous wheels also.

They are BC racing.

List your mods, might help with the sale...

You clearly have an exhaust, and an AA (or style) m5 front bumper grill with air ducts. I'm guessing you have more. Very clean car. Glws *th-up*

Btw rims are sik. You should include them.

When you show the car, have the wheels you want to sell with it.
Hide the wheels you want to keep!!!!!

People will always say, I'll take it at $X dollars, but with the wheels.
This goes for pretty much anything. It's always easier to negotiate accessories than price.

For example, when you have a set of snow tires, for a car that is for sale, donít ever mention it.
If you were asking $10K, most will say, Iíll take it for $9.5K with the snows.

You are better off selling the car, and then contacting the buyer a day or two later (after you have your money), and say, Iíve got snows for it, are you interested?

70% of the time, then ended up buying my snows as well.

Good luck! Love the wheels.
