If anyone is seriously looking for a manual 540i, check this out:

http://www.usedottawa.com/classified-ad/11285336

I saw the car today when I went to check out a Honda civic with my cousin (he is looking for one, it was the same seller).
I didn't ask much, but from what I was told, it has complete new cooling system : radiator, hoses, water pump, etc etc. Exhaust sounded nice too, but I like stock exhaust all the time.
Not a fan of the rims and exterior color.
But...
That peanut butter interior... wow!
It looked clean and amazing (remember I didn't thoroughly check everything). I loved that interior.

Not sure, its the guys car and he was driving it (it was registered) so probably a private sell since it was his personal car.

Imagine if it was anthracite instead of burgundy.

that 540 looks nice but whenever they put no year or mileage its always dodgy!

the 850 pulls nice, but needs 2 new cats... $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ plus dakar yellow? if only the car was the original black

The mileage was around 160 I think? I'm really not sure but I thought I saw something like 160 or 170 something.
The car was posted before and I believe its a 98.

The cats are easy if you get the Magnaflow performance cats that are CARB-certified. I paid ~$300 for both of mine, plus the price of getting them welded in.

I would be worried about what's causing the cats to fail.....

It was kinda in rough shape.
No AC, no records of timing belt being done, several dents and rust spots on the body. It could use a through detailing.

Saw that this morning. No way its an m-sport either. No body kit.

Some people think that just because their sport package car has an M on the steering wheel, makes it an m-sport. LOL
