2003 BMW 540i Sport 6 Speed | M-Tech (1/1190) | Alpine White On Black (1/12) - SOLD!

SOLD SOLD SOLD!

2003 BMW 540i 6 Speed Sport
Alpine White On Black
Mileage: 137,000
Title: Clean Wisconsin
VIN: WBADN53473GF71740


This 2003 BMW 540i is one 1190 M-Tech models imported into the US for the 2003 model year only. Of those, only 12 were made in this color combination. According to my research this is #879/1190. This package consisted of M5 bumpers, M5 suspension, M-Parallel wheels and M trim inside the car from the factory as well as the normal sport package upgrades for those not familiar with the model.

I was searching for a southern car and purchased this in North Carolina in 2011, having it dealer inspected before flying out with my good friend and board member e46king to verify that there were no problems or damage. The car spent its life between Virginia and North Carolina. There is absolutely no rust on the vehicle and it has never been involved in an accident. It has typical wear for age and mileage such as rock chips and scuffs on the underside of the bumper. I have stored it each winter; the only time it has left the garage during the winter months was to take pictures for this ad. Any prospective buyers are welcome to take a look under the car as I have access to a lift. I can also have the vehicle inspected at a BMW dealership at the buyer's prepaid expense. The closest dealership is International Autos in West Allis Wisconsin for reference.

The car has a clean Wisconsin title however due to a clerical error while registering the car in 2011 the DMV worker incorrectly labeled this as having "inaccurate mileage", apparently not knowing how to read a North Carolina title. I did not find out until it was too late and after inquiring with the DMV they do not edit registrations once they are submitted due to odometer laws. I can provide the email correspondence with the DMV to show this. I mention this because I believe in full disclosure and it will show up on a CarFax; however you will see that all mileage records line up perfectly and there are no discrepancies. Basically, all that this means is that the title says "Not Actual" next to the mileage instead of "Actual". Fortunately this can be verified by a BMW dealer as certain modules on the vehicle store mileage data and the "odometer tamper indicator" (which is triggered when any of the modules show a different mileage) is not active on the instrument cluster.

Edit 1/17: Looking at these pictures I realized that I forgot to mention the intermittent SRS light which happened to be on at the time I took these pictures. I scanned all of the systems on the car a year ago and the only code was for the passenger occupancy sensor which is fairly common on these. I know I took a screen shot of the code but I can't seem to find it! I intended to build a simulator as they are cheap (all sourced at radio shack) but haven't had a chance. The airbags still function when the light is triggered so it is mainly a visual nuisance. Basically the car sees a fault in the sensor, triggers the dash light, and defaults to "occupied". Also the battery in the key fob died, I have a new replacement but need to bring it to someone since it needs to be soldered to the circuit board. This will be fixed, but I am noting it in case someone looks at the car when the fob is still apart. I hate surprises when I am looking at cars and I am sure you do too!


Factory options include:
M-Tech sport package
Homelink, intensive windshield cleaner, automatic wipers
Heated seats
Auto leveling Xenon headlights
DSP premium audio
High on board computer (OBC)
Cold weather package (heated seats, mirrors, windshield squirters, ski pass through etc.)
Fold down rear seats

Additions:
BC Racing coilovers
Osram D2S CBI headlight bulbs
Monster aux adapter (interfaces factory radio)
Clutch delay valve (CDV) delete
Royal Purple transmission fluid
3M 35% window film
Black kidney grills
White "T bar" removed from lower grill (can be reattached in seconds)


No trades (unless if you have a cheap AWD + cash), only looking to sell outright. No low ballers or tire kickers; I will entertain reasonable offers. Please direct any inquiries to (612)548-4445, call, text, PM or email. The car is located in Racine, Wisconsin 53406 but I am willing to travel within reasonable distance for out of town buyers if the sale feels solid.

Thanks for looking!

Mike

No I don't mind. I started a business last year and want to focus my finances on that, which includes selling all my nonessential toys and going down to one car. If it weren't for that I would not even consider selling this for many years.
