1997 BMW 540i sport, 6 speed manual, M Sport suspension, 2pc factory 17? Style 5s (BBS RC090) with polished lips, also has 16? Borbet wheels with winter tires, black on black (Schwarz 2), 4.4L V8 M62 non vanos, pw, pl, heated steering wheel, heated 16 way comfort seats, sunroof, wood interior trim, DSP, 6 disc cd changer in the trunk, cassette in the dash, cruise, power tilt/telescopic steering, 2 key fobs with new buttons and batteries were replaced recently, and auto tint rear view mirror. I bought brand new BMW E39 factory black floor rubber mats, special order from the dealer. Also has the factory carpet floor mats too. Always ran premium fuel with Amsoil synthetic. Overall the car is in good shape, couple little spots of rust just starting, next to no door dents. One jack pad got soft about a month ago.
Car currently has about 260,000km, bought it with about 240,000km and have owned it for about 5 years. Just bought a new car, so no longer need my E39 anymore. Any repairs that were done, I didn?t use BMW specific parts but the parts manufacturers that BMW uses, Bosch, Lemforder, etc. All parts were brand new, so nothing used. Everything that has been done to the car since I?ve bought it is as follows:
-valley pan gasket
-BMW coolant
-gaskets in the intake
-pcv valve assembly
-coolant hoses at the rear of the engine and from the heater control valves
-heater control valves
-injector o-rings
-Bosch +4 platinum spark plugs
-all four knock sensors
-windshield rubber trim
-rear window rubber trim
-sunroof tilt mechanism
-ignition switch
-random intake hoses
-mass airflow sensor assembly
-1 oxygen sensor
-flex disc
-thrust arms
-rear sway bar links
-driver side wheel bearing
-driver side abs sensor
-both serpentine belts
-ilder pulleys and tensioners
-both headlight adjusters
-recent engine air filter
-recent charcoal cabin filters
-fuel filter
-trunk struts
-hood struts
-front and rear cup holders
-climate control button panel
-passenger lower fender liner
-new tires on the Style 5s not even 3000km ago (BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2, 255 in the rear and 235 up front)
-Amsoil synthetic power steering fluid
-brake fluid flush
-center console storage compartment with door
As for upgraded parts:
-genuine Alpina front bumper lip, had it imported from England
-genuine power fold M5 mirrors with module and window switch (has auto tinting glass, but not hooked up)
-E60 shifter which is a short shifter upgrade, also has new bushings and rubber boot
-2000 M5 tail lights (only made for one year, still uses the incandescent bulbs but doesn?t require modifications to the tail light bucket)
-Stoptech stainless steel braided flex lines at all calipers
-E39 face-lifted exterior body color matched trim on the bumpers, fenders, and doors (factory my car had the rubber black with a chrome trim top)
-Auxbeam LED high beams
-face-lifted fender lights that were tinted black
-ported/polished throttle body and traction control assembly
There is probably some parts I?m forgetting, selling the car as is, located just outside of Grand Bend. My new car is going on the road next week, so this will be parked. If you?d like to know more info about the car, feel free to message me. Asking $4000 with both sets of wheels or $3500 with winter wheels. And before anyone ask, no I am not selling any parts off the car. I'll try to get some more photos this weekend. I have attached a few, the links are the full resolution version, they're from the late summer so more recent.
