When friends and associates come to me and ask for my advice on large SUVs, I can’t help think that if I’m going to have a utility oriented vehicle with a large engine, why not make it fun? This is exactly where the E39 BMW 540i Touring comes in. Sure, it doesn’t have all-wheel drive, but it does everything else a mid to large sized SUV can, and rather well. Under the hood is the familiar 4.4 liter V8, coupled to a 5-speed automatic gearbox. Add to that cornering abilities that no truck could match and you have a recipe for family fun. As BMW’s commercial for the E39 stated when it debuted “why float through life, when you can drive?”

This car has lived a fabulous life. It is a two owner car from San Francisco, California and Phoenix, Arizona. First owner was actually a BMW distributor in Asia. This car was one of many cars in his USA personal car collection in the Biltmore Estates area in Arizona.
It was sold new at Camelback BMW Arizona. She still wears her original Camelback dealer license plate frames. The auto executive spent most of his time living overseas thus the low miles. This car mostly sat awaiting transport duty when the owner was in town.
The 2nd owner history is from Hillsborough, California. The car was meticulously serviced and maintained during its ownership. Again, this was one of many cars in the household in Hillsborough and the car just sat in the garage. Mostly used for weekend golf trips or going out to dinners.

Much like our Feature Listing 2003 BMW 540i M-Sport, it doesn’t bother me too much that this Touring is automatic, as that was the sole transmission choice for this model. Everything about this car is perfect for me. The low miles, shadowline trim and the gorgeous Style 32 wheels. Silver over gray leather isn’t the most engaging of colors for this particular car, but if you’re cruising on the motorway, it won’t grab the attention of the blues and twos, either. At no reserve, we’ll be watching this one very closely.
