My E39 540it M-Sport project

Or should i say 550it project! As some know i have been looking for a clean shell to swap my S62 driveline into, original plan was an E38 740i Sport but all i could find was IL's...So when this rare find came my way, i knew it was the one; meet the 2002 540ita M-Sport!!! The car is very clean, making it the perfect base for the M5 engine and 6 speed swap.

Like I said on the phone when you call me, sickest possible project.

If it existed from BMW, I would be owning the M5T! I thought about it in the past. Here is a lot of fun stuff for you to read through;

Great colour combo, just get rid of the wood, fast. Haha


Here are a few pics from my collection I came across;

Did you buy this car from a gentleman named Graham? I'm pretty sure I saw this EXACT car a few years back when I got my initial diagnosis for my left knee, thought I'd be stuck driving automatics for a couple years. Sweet project, I've always wanted a M5T.
