I am selling my 540i as I just picked up 2011 535xi
had this one for 8 years
Titanium Silver 540i Sport
manual transmission (short shifter, CDV delete, clutch stop)
upgraded to 2001 HELA HIDs
Upgraded (2001 look) rear lights
New Koni FSD shocks front and back
All new front suspension components
clean in an out.
235 thousand kms
two sets of wheels with new tires - winter 1 season and summer - half a season
looks and drives like new
VERY strong motor - was always stronger than other ones, kind of lucky.
I spent over 6 grand a couple of month ago to rebuild the motor, cooling system , and suspension - I thought I'd be driving it for another 3-4 years at least.
Compression (leak down test) in all cylinders is same as on new engine now.
The car is pretty much like new everywhere. Motor with all new parts, cooling fully replaced - pump, hoses, rad - the whole bit.
I overhauled it for myself to enjoy for years to come but my business picked up and I could afford a brand new one. Who seen my car, knows it is VERY well cared for.
