I am selling my 2000 BMW 540i sport 6 speed manual transmission with 171,000KM for $11,000.
I have owned the car for 3 years. I am the second owner of this vehicle. I had purchased it from a doctor who took extremely good care of it and kept the service records for proof.
This Silver BMW is the closest thing to an M5. It comes with M5 suspension, steering/wheel, 8 way power adjustable sport seats, and of course the rare 6 speed manual transmission. It is close to 300 horsepower - the perfect blend of luxury and performance. It sits beautifully and is an absolute pleasure to drive. This vehicle was rated one of the best vehicles to buys under $100,000 when it came out.
I have babied this beast since owning it. Mechanically, this car is flawless. I do have most of the service records and receipts. Some of the things I have done to it since owning it:
clear lights all the way around including angel eyes with 8000K bulbs
new battery and alternator
new power steering pump
many suspension parts including shocks/stabilzers, etc.
02 sensors/abs module
*and much more.
The only problem this car has is the dead pixels in the odometer.. sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. This is a common problem which affects even some of the newer BMW's of today.
I have put a lot of money into this car to make sure it runs like new! The new owner of this vehicle will be extremely happy as much maintenance will not be needed though I have changed virtually everything possible to make sure this car can run another 100,000KM. The engine runs extremely efficient. I do full synthetic oil changes every 8000 - 1000KM(just did one last week) even though it is recommended to do them every 20,000KM. Even though this is a 4.4L V8 it is still one of the most fuel efficient V8's out there. I get about 8L-8.5L/100KM on highway and about 11-11.5L/100KM within the city. If you are a 3 series owner don't be surprised when a 540i 6 speed manual owner tells you that he gets better gas mileage then you.
I am including 2 sets of rims and tires. I have 17inch winter tires that I just bought this year (paid over $1000) They are 245/45/17 in the rear and 225/45/17 in the front.
I will also throw in my beautiful summer 18" summer staggered rims and tires. These tires were just bought last summer. They are 2 piece rims - I believe they are made by AC Shnizter but I could be wrong. They are 265/40/18 in the rear an 235/40/18 in the front. These rims give my car a very aggressive look!
There are stone chips on the hood and bumper that I was going to get repaired. I am willing to pay for the body work for the new buyer. This would be a great opportunity to purchase an M5 bumper and M5 lip spoiler to complete this vehicle's M5 look. Though I am getting it already painted I can get the bumpers painted and installed for you for free!
If you are in the market for an e39, then this is one of the best ones out there in my opinion. I have taken very good care of it, it has never been in an accident, original paint, rare 6 speed, 2 sets of rims and tires, plus all the luxury options make this vehicle a very good deal for what I am asking.
These are all the pics I have for now. I only negotiate in person with people who have a cheque in their hands. Serious enquiries only!
