Back in April I took a look at a post-LCI E39 540i Sport with the desirable 6-speed manual:
Today’s earlier example looks great in hard-to-find Anthracite Metallic with the multi-piece BBS Style 19s. While it’s not a spring chicken, there looks to be a reasonable amount of value in this car. Let’s take a look:
CLICK FOR DETAILS: 2000 BMW 540i Sport 6-Speed on eBay
Model: 540i Sport
Engine: 4.4 liter V8
Transmission: 6-speed manual
Mileage: 167,000 mi
Location: Houston, Texas
Price: No Reserve Auction
2000 BMW 540i M sport with the highly desired 6 speed transmission. Vehicle is in great running condition and has a new set of Michelin tires for the next owner. TCG have been relaced and all work has been completed by certified BMW techs.
There’s not much to go on from the ad, but this one had pretty standard options; power-adjustable front sport seats, sport suspension, xenon headlights, rain-sensing wipers, and Dynamic Stability Control. The M62 is said to have received replacement timing chain guides, which is a question that always comes up, and the tires are claimed to be new as well. Both the body and interior look to be in good condition, as well – especially for nearly 170,000 miles. As I said with the A8, this is just the right generation for many – enough creature comforts, but not too many computer systems. The starting price is $7,500, which seems to be fairly reasonable for what you’re getting. I’m not sure I’d be interested in paying a lot more, but with a half a day spent on the headlights this one could really look like a steal.
