2002 BMW 540i Sport for Sale. ***Sold***

Recommended Posts

Selling my E39 as I’ve bought an E60 M5 expecting not to like it, but I’m actually really enjoying it. I also have an E34 M5 and an MX5 Track car so juggling 5 cars in suburban London is not practical, so the E39 has to go.

Key Facts
- Selling at £2500
- OEM 540i Sport Auto
- Date of build: 31st July 2002
- Date of UK registration: 25th April 2003
- 1 Year MOT
- Chassis Number GF13849
- 120k miles
- I’ve owned the car since Sept 2012, I’ve spent > £6k on maintenance in that time.
- Nothing came up on HPI when I bought it and it’s not been crashed or stolen in my tenure.
- Car comes with all associated handbooks, wallets, 2 x working remote Keys, 2 x locking wheel nuts
- Private plate will come off before sale

Car condition is decent, I take the tube to work so it’s really only been used to travel to Belgium / France and back with Family a couple of times a year + pootling around SW London on the weekends. It’s fast and smooth, handles excellently and the engine runs nicely, it really has been a fantastic car.  

Nice bits of Spec
- Sport Contour Seats with lumbar support etc (not heated)
- Automatic lights
- Air con works / is cold
- OEM Detachable tow bar
- Upgraded BM54 audio module with Aux in cable
- Full OEM satnav with upgraded maps, works well + OEM Bluetooth for Iphone etc
- Electric rear blind

Things that need attention
- PDC is intermittent ( I think I’ve identified one failing sensor)
- Clunky downshift into 1st gear when hot (I’ve lived with this for years, I’ve had the gearbox serviced, Heat exchange replaced etc )
- Handbrake is useless (always has been)
- Brake pipes came up as an advisory
- Rust Came up as an advisory, there’s some on the drivers side rear arch as well as the boot, which is already stripped down ready to change. ( I bought a rust free boot but was damaged in transit and didn’t get round to sourcing a replacement).

Maintenance etc
I bought the car on 86k miles with a good service history, since then I’ve either done services myself with receipts from GSF / BMW parts etc or had my mechanic do so. Below is a rough list of work done in my ownership, along with mileage. I stopped filling in the sheet at the end of 2017 when life got too busy, but I have various receipts for 2018 to date including this month £70 on wipers plus some new rear brake pads...

Please can you PM numbers and keep them off the open forum; it’s open to the public and don’t want your number getting spammed by the cockwombles out there that do this
