Price...I'm seeing much higher mileage lower spec cars with a fraction of the above with average bodywork for £4500+.

So I’m going to say ono £6500

 

Car drives really well and smooth. It is quick!

I’m selling as we’re just changing cars in the household. (335d sold) F10 M5 Competition Pack bought a fortnight ago and M3 Competition Pack due in this week. Am in two minds about whether or not the e39 M5 goes.

Presume this is a pre-facelift SE? 

 

Does it have heated sport seats?

 

Is the window trim chrome or shadowline?

 

Thanks

Seats aren't heated, they are sports.

Shadow line.

It's not a sport or SE.

It was speccd with M sport suspension from factory

I'd be interested to hear what response you get.

 

Not looking to sell my 540i but everything is always for sale at the right price.

Erring towards keeping it, recoded 4.6 cluster and virginised remapped ecu with warm up lights enabled on the way back. + have just ordered the bilstein/h&r damper kit with bilstein air Springs. Interestingly the chassis number flags the car as having the M tech suspension option.

I did have a look online, here are the prices I saw:

 

2001 195k £4995

2002 172k £3000

1999 161k £3995

2000 141k £3450

1999 146k £2695

2002 60k £11940

2004 74k £23995

 
 
Many weren’t sports or had rust etc. and much higher mileage. V. Few had the level of maintenance or spec.
so I’ve picked a number. I appreciate the price will attract debate.

Seems a great car.

 

£9k is a fairly punchy aspiration though and is verging on 'collector's car' price bracket. Most people looking to collect something like this might want the car to be totally original and it's been fairly heavily modified in one way or another, fitted with some non-standard, non-BMW parts. + a mixed with a few Alpina flavours.

 

I really like what you've done with it but potential collectors might be a little shy of something that's not 'bone-stock', to coin a phrase from the other side of the Atlantic.

 

£9k is definitely mid E39 M5 territory. (That £24k price for the '04 can only be Hexagon. Am I right?)

 

Good luck with the sale though. Like selling a house, you only need just one buyer!

I'd love to know what my '97 540iA Touring (120k) is worth if those prices are what they actually sold for.

Don't all 540i's have M Sport suspension?

 

I assumed the SE models wouldn’t?

My understanding was that pre-facelifts came with sport suspension by default, with the standard setup as an option.

 

As for how many Tourings are left, I think it's a lot more than 19.

I think the SE saloons did after a certain time around 1998 - the SE saloons also had sport seats. Tourings however had them as an option.

There’s 18 540i/6 tourings on the road and 13 sorn (some of these have prob been binned but not reported yet) 

 

theres 6 540i/6 sport Touring's left on the road with 3 sorn although I do know of one of them that was just broken on another site.

 

There’s plenty of tourings left yes.... but factory 540i/6 tourings are getting very thin on the ground now with more likely to be broken or scrapped over the next few years. 

 

I would say of the non special type alpina, hartge variants etc, it’s not the most desirable model but from factory uk issued cars from Bmw it’s the rarest one.

 

numbers sourced from how many left site.

There you go. 

Rare car. I’m putting back the oem mk iv Nav , Wide screen, Bluetooth and digital tv. I think a mix of oem and genuine Alpina bits will go down well. I can’t see eibach/bilstein suspension putting buyers off.

I think it was the other way round
