    Thumbs up 2000 540i 6-speed Sport - Enthusiast Owned

    For sale is my 2000 BMW 540i Sport 6-speed with 105XXX miles, Titanium Silver/Gray (a feature car in the Boston E46 Fanatics 2010 “Benefit for Dave” Calendar - HERE)
    Options: Sport Package, Sport Heated Seats, Premium DSP Stereo, Sunroof, Xenon Headlights, Factory Alarm w/ Interior Motion Sensors

    -NH Inspection until 5/10
    -Hardwired for Radar Detector
    -35% Tint all around
    -Custom Painted Gunmetal OEM Style 66s
    -Brembo Rotors w/ Akebono Ceramic pads up front
    -Angel Eyes, 6000k HID Fogs
    -Matte Black M5 Kidney Grilles
    -E39 M5 Lighted Shift Knob
    -OEM E60 545i shifter
    -K&N Air Filter
    -CDV Delete
    -Every cooling system hose replaced 8/09
    -OEM M5 tail lights (have original ambers as well)
    -OEM 2003 540 M-tech rear bumper
    -OEM M5 rear swaybar
    -Custom Magnaflow exhaust w/ 4” tip

    -WINTER: Set of Four 17” Mille Miglia MM11-2 Sport wheels/BRAND NEW winter tires and OEM rubber floor mats

    The Good: Meticulously cared for, fully detailed twice a year, oil changed with Amsoil Euro Formula every 7500 miles w/ new OEM Mann filter. Have all service records and receipts from the time I purchased the car (June ’07). Have an Excel spreadsheet that itemizes all services that I performed personally (with mileage/date). I have a strong background in cars and have owned and cared for this car as a true enthusiast. I am also a member of the BMWCCA and participate via the Boston Chapter. I have two sets of keys and a valet key as well.

    This car dynoed 260HP/311TQ at the rear wheels (approximately 305+HP/365+TQ at the flywheel) back when it was stock and pulls VERY strong.

    The Bad: Unfortunately, last week the air conditioning stopped working. I had the problem diagnosed and found that the condenser has developed a small leak and will need to be replaced ($125 OEM part by Baer). Other than that (and verified by my service records), this car is mechanically sound and drives like an absolute dream. Also, the rear passenger door handle is broken on the inside only. It isn’t visibly broken, but the slider has popped off the handle inside the door and can’t be opened from the inside at this time. Some wear and tear nicks on the front end and the hood. The cup holders (as with every other E39 ever made) do not work and are stuck closed, but are useless anyways. The 6-disc CD changer stopped working shortly after I purchased the car and I never replaced it (use iPod via tape deck in dash).

    I would rate this car as a 8/10 exterior, 9/10 interior and would love to see this car go to another BMW enthusiast. I’m asking $9,000 OBO, which is under Blue Book, and am motivated for a quick sale to the right person. The name of someone that decides to buy my car would be worth $100 in my book... Please PM me for contact info and additional pictures as I do not want spam phone calls or emails. Thanks!

    –Rick G.
