IN: 1999 540i 6 speed sport pkg
located in Bloomington, IN
$6950 - make offer.
I am the 4th owner. The 2nd owner purchased the car with 60k from a dealer in Cincinnati and I have pretty good history of the car since that time. The 3rd owner is a personal friend and he owned the car for a few months before I purchased it from him in 2011 with 167k. Car is in good shape mechanically and cosmetically - paint looks good, carpet and leather look good. Very few dash or cluster pixels out. Factory front cup holders in place. Paint has chips on hood. Windshield appears to be original and has a few chips - no cracks. Maintenance and part replacement have been completed as needed in an attempt to preserve the car.

I was told he replaced speakers with Infinity speakers - have not visually verified this. Does have subwoofer in trunk, mounted to underside of rear deck (see pic below). Has amp in place of 6-disc changer.
Oil leak at valve covers. You can see above that I had the gaskets replaced, but oil is still leaking. Not leaking enough to notice change on dipstick during 5k mile oil change intervals. Covers will likely need to be cleaned and painted or replaced.

Airbag light on
Rear cup holders are gone

Nice car and a blast to drive. Selling to downsize # of vehicles. I think about changing my mind every time I get behind the wheel, but it needs to go.
