Got a kick out of this one,
M5 PACKAGE, M5 WHEELS ON THIS 2001 540 V8 BMW. THIS VEHICLE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THE INTERIOR IS PERFECT AND THE PAINT IS EXCELLENT. THE COLOR IS A GREYISH BLUE AND THE CAR HAS EVERYTHING THE M5 HAS EXCEPT THE M5 ENGINE. HOWEVER THIS V8 HAS PLENTY OF POWER.

Maybe I should just keep my good ole '00 540i/6 and not move up to an '01-'03 M5 like I want. After all the sports wheel makes it an M5 except for the engine!

There is a lot more than the engine that differ between a 540i and an M5.

-Suspension
-Interior
-Engine (obviously)
-Gearbox, transmission
-Brakes
-Steering
-Bodywork
-And lacks the Pure M factor you can only get from a M car.

This is not even an "bomb" 540i.

you must be joking....because I can't tell the difference between this car and a 520i.

But every kid gets his wet dream first before he becomes a real man.

Let's consider this as a wet dream.:D

You can fool some of the people some of the time and "there is one born every minute". Lets see, a fool and his money are soon parted.

Certainly you must have more that apply here.

Come on, we've all been down that road before! I had several
540's, not one has the M5 magic. I was on the 5 step program,
5 steps to an M5! It all became quite clear to me once I got my M5,
that there is nothing close. I actually went through about 9 Bimmers
before I settled in. Just buy the M5, you wont be sorry, and if you dont
buy one, you will always be behind.

I think the point was that this 540 wasn't even trying to pose as an M5, although the owner was trying to claim otherwise.

I emaile him to ask him about his car. Here are some of the things he had to say... (four responses)

You can figure out what I asked by his answers.

It has the m5 suspension. Not sure of the gearing but it was the whole
package they had for that year.
Thanks
Mark

The wheels say m5 right on them with the m symbol. You are wrong.
Sorry.

You are obviously an idiot. I am selling the car as it is represented.
If you think the car canot have the m5 suspension or wheels you are
wrong and misinformed which makes you ignorant. Don't waste my time
anymore and move on with your obviously ignorant life.

Get a life.


Sounds like quite the diplomat huh?

I think what he really means is that his car has everything that an M5 has excect for the M5 package. If you look, he does have a BMW that has wheels and tires and windows and a nice paint job. Other than that, you can't tell what else it might have because you can't see the interior. I do assume that it has an engine and a transmission and a radio and probably some other stuff too.

It's not an M5, but it's close. Just add a few items (at about $40k for the parts, who knows about the labor), and... viola, an M5 clone.

There are "players" and there are "posers". Calling this car/seller a "poser" would be a definate step-up! Dig that M5 front air-dam & wheels! You actually trying to sell this as an "M5 look-alike"??????????? C'mon...even Stevie Wonder could figure this POS out:nono: .

MPowerChicago, if you sell this as mentioned "AND THE CAR HAS EVERYTHING THE M5 HAS EXCEPT THE M5 ENGINE. HOWEVER THIS V8 HAS PLENTY OF POWER" You are commiting FRAUD:grrrrr: . Sell this line of crap on Flee-Bay, not here!

Just to clarify, that is not my car. I think most folks here got that but just in case anyone else was confused on my original post. I just got a kick out of that during one of my searches on eBay so I posted it here to poke fun at it.
