1995 540i 6 Speed - Feeler

Hi all

Thinking about selling my car (pic in sig).

Its a 1995 540i/6 speed, oxford green on parchment, 260 000kms. The car is in fantastic shape - don't let the miles fool you. Stock except for 18" OEM style 5's, in dash CD player and lowered (by PO - details on suspension to follow). Car is certified/emissions tested. Running on virtually brand new (probably 500kms) Pirelli P-Zero Rosso's. Asking $5500.

Mechanically solid - pulls very hard, clutch in great shape. Inspected by Chuck's Auto last week, going into Bimmersport tomorrow for a few little things (oil change, more detailed inspection, etc).

Pictures should be up tomorrow.

Bought the car recently, but debating switching to an E36. No rush to sell.

PM/call (416-302-1956) if interested.

Thanks

Whats the reason for the quick sale? Is it a Nikasil block? Hows the compression?

I'll sell it only if I can get the right price - am in no rush. The reason is that on balance, I've decided I would prefer an E36 coupe - M3 or a decent 328is. I can only pick one up if I sell this car though, and given the work that is currently being done on it, I'm not as eager to get rid of it as I was.

I believe it is a Nikasil block, but I'll have to double check that. Compression test was run by PO a couple of years ago and it was pretty even. I don't have a recent test though. I have only used 91 octane or higher (though I've only had it a couple weeks) and its running well.

Bimmersport went over it this week and other than a few minor things which are currently being addressed (AC drive belt, control arm bushing, front brakes, shocks), it received a clean bill of health.

In theory yes, but I'm really not motivated to sell at the moment - really too busy to look for a replacement - but for the right price, I might decide to part with it. Also, as mentioned above, I've just put a bunch of money into it, and there's no way I'll get that back selling it, so I'm thinking I'll just drive it for the next little while - likely it'll be back on the market next May/June and at that point I'll be far more motivated.

Edit: if "sproule905" ends up wanting to sell his, I might suddenly become very motivated to sell...

The silver one in your album? If so, let me know - if I can sell mine, I'd be interested for sure.

My daughter just turned 4...

My e46 touring has been perfect, room for the stroller and all the junk.

Once a year when we take a big holiday I put a thule box on the roof, tons of room.

Next year it is time for a new car, thinking of going back to a coupe!

Hi all,

I've received a few calls on this so I feel I should update - I've just put a bunch of money into the car, and I know I wont get any of it back if I decide to sell. Plus, I don't really have the time to look for a replacement right now, and so I'm going to drive the car for a few months and then put it back on the market in the spring.

Those of you who called/PM'd, thanks for your interest. Look for this car for sale again (by a motivated seller) next May.

Cheers
