Car: 1999 BMW 540i 6 speed.
Miles: 92,900
Color: Alpine White with Tan interior
Price: $20,500 or best offer
Contact: via PM, email [email protected] or call 773 600-9401

Up for sale is my beautiful and beloved Alpine White 540i 6 speed. When I have bought this car in December 2002, I said I will keep this car forever. I started moding it, to make it run, handle, sound and look better. I have put thousands of dollars into it. My loss is your gain. It is sad that I have to part with it, but currently have 3 cars and there really isn’t any point for me to keep this car any longer.
In the past year, I’ve put only ~2,500 miles on it. This car was meant to be driven, and since I’ve purchased the M5 I just haven’t driven it much. Right now it’s garaged and under a car cover.
No door dings, paint is in great shape and the car doesn’t need anything. Runs very strong, and much better than the day I have bought it. Maintenance is up to date, and preventive maintenance as well. I have tons of receipts.
