2000 BMW 540i for sale Blown Engine
 
I just had my second diagnosis on my car and it has a blown engine. Looking to sell as i dont have the money to pay for a used one. Excepting reasonable offers. The car is located in New Jersey.

"Blown engine" means what exactly? Auto/manual, mileage, colors, maint. history, pics?

ironman27 12-17-2012 06:16 PM

120000 miles , midnight blue pics to come. automatic trans

So, what's happened to the engine? BTW, for similar car in similar conditions (however, in my case, the engine wasn't "blown", but required significant overhaul: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=636775) I paid $1600 last August in MD....

How much would you sell your engine for and how much miles does it have ?!?

My engine, wire harness and transmission got pulled out in one piece. My mechanic buddy Jay showed me how to pull a engine and told me to keep it all together for a better sale. I never heard the engine run but was verified that it does. I have to do a compression test myself to satisfy my approval. It's got around 94,000 miles on it. That's what the recently inspected sticker said.

The average used price is $2,400 for the engine and $1,900 with the auto trans. It's a complete engine. Still have keys and ignition plus the computer modules.

I'll price it $2,500 for the complete engine and trans. Keys, ignition and computers would be an added cost, tho i'm sure u got that covered.
