up for sale is my 1998 BMW 540i automatic transmission
Mileage is 166688 as of today!
Clean title in hand!
AC blows cold. Heat/heated seats works wonders
I bought the car in December 2010. To be honest the car wasn't in very good shape mechanically.
I did a lot of work and spent MAJOR $$$ to maintain/upgrade whatever is needed.
I drove about 6000 miles on the car and within 6k miles I did the following
OEM intake reseal kit & valve cover gasket by BMW master tech. This is a very important mod as most of you know to keep the engine healthy.
OEM BMW spark plugs
3 oil changes with OEM filter and 5W-30 oil. no joke! i want my engine to be clean. the last oil change was done on 2/15/2012
ECS magnetic oil drain plug
Bilstein HD shocks at all 4 corners
B&G lowering springs
Centric Cross drilled rotors on all 4 corners with Posi super quiet ceramic pads
Brand new rebuilt front brake calipers since the old ones were junk!
OEM wheel bearings on all 4 corners
Mahle Intake Air filter
Battery replacement about 1 month ago with NEW Exide battery
Depo HID headlight kit. angel eyes aren't working though
Front & rear suspension components overhaul. control arms, thrust arms etc
D-Force 18x8.5 et15 Empower gold wheels each weighs about 19lbs
245/40-18 hankook V12 evo summer tires. all these are bought new!
I put on two resonators on the exhaust because the exhaust was loud for me.
Two new Magnaflow 200cell HFCs no CEL!
Transmission complete flush with OEM tranny fluid
Brake fluid flush with DOT4 brake fluid
Brand New radiator and OEM hoses
Coolant flush with OEM coolant
New water pump
New Bosch O2 sensors all around
Mahle Fuel filter
Dynavin unit swap. everything works! I did it myself.
During the time the car was with me, I had the car complete washed/detailed in and out 5 times because I am anal.
I probably have forgot something since I have done so many with this car.
Right now the car is mechanically perfect!
All the mechanical works were performed by ACE/D-Force. I have some of the receipts for it. If you ad up the grand total, it's over $10K easy with parts and labor.
Now onto the pictures
I don't know why some pictures are rotated!
Needless to say this car is a labor of love! People who knows me know how much I put into my car. Also i am not going to post a for sale price asking for $20K because that's just crazy and no one will buy it. However I am not going to give it away either.
Reason for sale: very simple, I have way tooooooo many cars and I don't know what to do with them. I am trying to sell this one and my 350Z.
Above are all the good stuff
now the bad stuff
AC vent is missing a part, I will replace it though.
Exterior does need TLC like a respray. It does have scratches, dings.. I was going to get it done but at this point, just not worth my time and money.
The outside temp sensor is not working, it only shows -40F all the time.
very few missing pixels.
Angel eyes not working.
Interior is showing wear on some trims, shift knob.
that's it. The car is mechanically perfect. It has not letting me down since I did all the work to it.
you guys can check me over on M3forum since I use the same user name. I don't get on here much.
Price $9000 obo to be realistic. Please don't low ball me, I am not giving the car away. However, you guys can throw me what you think it's worth and it's reasonable. Keep in mind
please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for the fastest response!
