I sold mine with nearly the same K's, same pkg, except I had 17" sport rims, 6-speed true M-sport. It was an awesome car, and I regret getting rid of it.
I sold it for around that last year, AND I'm contemplating buying another. You may want to have it appraised if you think you'll get $40K. My car was a certified series car. I had 16" winter rims and tires with it as well. IT TOOK A LONG TIME TO GET RID OF. There are too many E39 540's out there available for sale.
5-er's are dropping in price at a phenomenal rate. I think you'll have a hard time getting $30K-$32K. You might want to trade it in as some BMW dealers are known to pay well for low-K BMW trade ins that they can certify and sell as certified series cars...
If you get $40K for that car, I have a salesperson job for you at my company (and I'm not joking).
Regardless, good luck with the sale. Bump for one awesome car.
