FS/FT 1999 BMW 540i 6spd/Dinan %
Up for sale/trade is my 1999 BMW 540i 6spd equipped with Dinan packages. The car has 148k miles. The overall condition is good. It does not look brand new, but it doesn't look 13 years old either.
I am the 3rd owner of the car. The original owner serviced the car at the dealer and at Motor Works West. I have had all service performed at Motor Works West. I have all paperwork on the car going back to the original window sticker.
The car is really a beast. It puts out about 360hp & has a ton of low end torque. The E39 chassis is a modern classic that handles incredibly well. It can go from 60 to 90 as fast as it goes from 0 to 30. Drop down into 4th gear on the highway and there is very little that you cannot pass.
It is not badged as a Dinan 5, but it does qualify for the badge & I have the paperwork to verify this.

In the past 2-3 years the following have been replaced as part of normal maintenance
Pads & Rotors
Intake Manifold Gasket
Front tires are new and have about 100 miles on them
The Bad (See pics in the gallery):
Front DS fender needs bodywork, does not impact driving the car at all
2" ding near DS taillight
Paint is about average for a 13 year old car. Far from perfect, but also not horrible. The car still looks sharp.
Typical broken rear cupholder
Dead pixels on the instrument cluster display
