I guess you're right. It's too difficult to make any profit from but believe me, a manual 540i would sell for ALOT more than an auto. It would be a rare car and more fun. E39 M5s are still over 40k...

Can the cats do that? The car has done 230,000 km. Should I gut the cats. I heard removing or gutting the cats needs a retune since the car is tuned for cats in it.
