FS 2002 540 M sport - Charlotte NC

Email me - john@hdwlaw.com for more info/pictures.

Very highly sought after E39 BMW 540 w/ factory M sport package and very desirable style 66 wheels. 102K miles. Fully loaded. Very well maintained. Low miles and extra clean for its age. 100% factory, never raced, modified or wrecked. Non-smoker, no pets. No cracks or tears in the leather. Matching Michelin Pilot Sport tires with plenty of tread left. Excellent color combo too. I have lots of maintenance records. This car is silky smooth just like a BMW should be; it will not disappoint you. Plenty of power. Everything works as it should. Not many left out there like this one.

The only issue with this car is it does have a slight oil leak (front timing cover), but all BMW V8 cars do at this age/mileage. It does not affect the car at all - just being honest about its condition.

I am a 38 year old professional. This car has been my daily driver for the last 4.5 years. This is a serious sale, and I will entertain serious offers. But I know what I have and what its worth, so please, no tire kickers or lowballers. I have a clean and clear title in hand, ready to sign over to the new owner.

Asking $10,900

Thank you sir. That's funny... I just hope I can coordinate the sell with the new lease. I do not want to have to sell it while I have a new one in the garage, or sell mine too early and have to car pool in the wife's mini van!

I have a lawyer friend who has a '91 535 that he loves, but he loves my 540 too. We had lunch today and discussed him buying it. I know he will take good care of it. But what would suck about that is he is in the same building as me, so I would see it still everyday.... and I know he would taught me! He would say, 'hey, lets go to lunch today.. I'll drive'. Then remind me of the bottomless pit of torque it has...

Haha, that would actually be awesome! At least you can keep tabs on her.

That's true....

I dropped the asking price to $10,900 this morning. I hope to sell soon so I can move forward with the lease.

Beautiful car let me say. Always have loved those 540 e39's.

Is it a true M Sport though? The front facia doesn't appear to be an M-tech?

And if it was a 6 speed, I think buyers would be knocking down your door.

Good luck with the sale!!

I do not believe so. It was just pointed out to me that 'M Sport' is not the same as a 'sport'. I think M Sport, was techincally just the 2003 540s? Anyway, I'm not the expert and I know it has the factory 'sport' package as to whatever that was for the 2002 model year, which I think is the M steering wheel, the M style 66 wheels and a stiffer suspension - not the same as the M5 setup, but more aggressive than a 'non-sport' 540.

^^ It's not an M-Sport. Your car has the Sport package. The M-Sport has M5 front and rear bumpers, different moldings and trim. Nice car- looks clean.

Pretty smart for a geek ambulance chaser. Only took you like a week to get it that you don't have an M-anything. Not an M-Sport, not an M-tecknic, just a sport. Jesus, for a lawyer you are dense. Nice car though for what it is, which is still a decent car. Just call a spade a spade and your sale will go much better.
