1999 540i auto; 133k miles; one family ownership; $5k

Selling my 1999 BMW e39 540i Sport automatic. 133k miles.

$5000 OBO. I'd like to sell it to a BMW person, which is why I came to Pelican first.

Located in Austin, TX. Capable of driving any distance reliably (and quickly).

My father ordered this from the factory and put 55k miles on it before he passed away in 2010. I brought it home and used it as a highway commuter car (always had an SUV for chores and bad weather, as did Dad) from then until now. I've finally replaced this with a new car. I will miss it.

No issues other than rock chips, scratches and wear appropriate to this mileage. Engine and transmission are both strong and working well. All electronics, including original stereo, lights, auto up/down electric windows, locks, keyless entry, seats with 3-position memory work properly. Car cover, bra and windshield sun screen included.

Maintenance History:
  • Fuel tank replaced in ~2010 when I hit a retread on the highway.
  • Valve cover gaskets, timing cover gasket and entire cooling system replaced in 2010.
  • ABS module and water pump replaced 12/2015.
  • Front left fender replaced when it was backed into at low speed in my driveway. The crease went through a bodyline and would have been more costly to repair.
  • Front-end resprayed to address the rock chips accumulated during the Austin to San Antonio commute that I did for a couple of years.
  • Fuel pump & filter replaced earlier this year.
  • Control arms and front brakes replaced 4/2014
  • Reaction arm bushings, plugs, brake fluid replaced 2/2015
  • Power steering hoses replaced 11/2015
  • V-Belts replaced 11/2015
  • Continental ExtremeContact DW tires new as of 2/2015. Less than 5k miles.

I have full records.

Professionally tinted to cope with Texas summers. The car just passed Texas inspection a couple of weeks ago. Clean Texas title in my name.
