Considering trading my beloved and rare wagon/touring for a well cared for diesel truck. Would want to inspect truck in person, so ideally is close to me. Could be straight trade or trade + cash. I bought the car from Irvine BMW from a lease return at ~25k miles and have owned since. Very detailed history and is a pampered garage queen.


Quick rundown:
The Good.
2003 540iTA
91k miles
Factory M Sport package with sport suspension
Silver ext w/black interior and dark wood trim
Paint & Body 9/10, waxed, waxed, clay bar, sealant regularly, only couple tiny door dings (only noticeable if looking carefully for them); no dents otherwise
Interior 9.5/10, Sport Seats (very nice!), bolsters all great
Mechanical 9/10, have phone app full of detailed maintenance history since I have bought it. I may have over maintained it, but I'm ok with that..
Old School maintenance (Non-Computer frequency oil changes using factory oil since new, Auto trans fluid & filter change, Diff Fluid Change, Cooling system change, brake fluid flush, power steering fluid flush)
Square style 65's 9/10 (these are e39 m5 OEM wheels)
OEM M5 front & rear bumpers w/brake ducts
Medium window tint
Thule roof rack
Proactive engine refresh
Captains seat bolsters are not beat up
Just replaced hatch struts
Suspension parts new (struts &.shocks, thrust bushings, all rear suspension assembly replaced)
BMW Rubber hatch floor mat
New OEM BMW Floor mats
Dinan Cold Air Intake
Dinan Engine Software
Dinan Transmission software (allows you to hold a gear unlike steptronics forced gear changes)
Magnaflow Exhaust (sounds great, complements car nicely)
BMW Individual High Gloss Satin Chrome Trim from factory
BMW Individual Anthracite Headliner from factory

Not as good:
Some pixels out in radio
Some small paint nicks
Tires could be replaced in next 10k miles
Couple small scratches in leather
Headlights have some pitting
1 inch minor curb rash on 1 wheel, rest are near perfection
Rear passenger seat wood trim on door has small crack in it, hard to notice though
Steering wheel center has rubber coating off, hard to tell unless looking for it
One of power steering hoses has a small leak (I replaced with new but is now leaking from junction at rubber and metal fitting, maybe should try and get warrantied!)


Hit me up with any questions or offers, not in a hurry. Ideally has extended cab or whatever term the manufacturer uses for second row seating with door.
