Towards the end of the E34 run, the 540i was offered in the US with an M-Sport package. This added sport seats, an M-tech body kit and mirrors plus suspension and steering components borrowed from the M5. Only 200 units were produced, and of those only 139 came equipped with the 6-speed manual gearbox. So equipped, the 540i is an attractive and cheaper alternative to the M5, whose values we’ve seen creep up lately as the M-enthusiast crowd has rediscovered their love for the E34. This clean, low-mileage example is one of those manual cars.

I’m a fan of the simple, unfussy arctic silver over black color scheme, and the bodykit and throwing star wheels which add just the right amount of sporting pretension to the already classy lines of the E34 body shape. The most interesting thing about this car is the noted presence of the 3.23 rear diff, which I believe was offered on the M5 but not the M-Sport.
The exterior of this car looks to be in excellent condition, with no flaws apparent from pictures. The interior is similarly clean. I’ve noted before how disappointing it is that so many E34s come to market in poor shape, so it’s refreshing to see one that’s so clean. The leather seats look barely used, with no bolster-wear apparent. Even the door cards look clear of the dreaded peel that is so common to these cars. The headliner, however, does appear to be sagging in the corners. But that is a cheap and easy fix.
The auction for the car starts at $12k; at the time of writing there has been no action. I wonder if that’s a little too high given that an M5 can be had for not much more (though admittedly not with such low mileage).
