E39 BMW 540 M SPORT 6 SPEED MANUAL SALOON
Rare Appreciating BMW Asset
Immaculate Condition
84,000 miles


First registered and pre delivery inspected on 19th December 2002 by
Williams BMW of Bolton Manchester as a company demonstrator and sold
onto its first private owner in July the next year at 7 months old.
Finished in Titan Silver with many factory options this is rather an
elusive model, there are many 540 automatics with M sport kit added as
an option, however this is the real deal and the full blown M sports
model. This rare example presents in remarkable condition with high factory
specification and nothing at all been altered, it has come from an
enthusiasts home and hopefully finds another as it is now to be cherished
for the future, ideal collectors car.

Chassis - WBADN52050BF06165
Engine - 56302747

The Runout E39 M Sport
The limited run 2003 model year M-sport model featured the items below as
standard, these items were of course available as an option in other model
years however only 2003 model year cars was the kit below stock. The package
involves numerous suspension, powertrain and trim changes. The manual gearbox
4.4 V8 is a smoother alternative to the full blown M5. Some say it bridged
the gap between the two, however its a far more comfortable car to drive,
the same gearbox though with more low down torque and of course far cheaper
to run and service. The smooth delivery of the power is the best BMW ever
managed and the E39 is probably the best 5 series ever made, it truly did
hit the sweet spot.

Service History
A relatively low warranted mileage of 84000 with a fully stamped service
booklet, intervals below. I have just treated the engine to a full Inspection
1 service as per BMW criteria. This included 5W 30 fully synthetic oil and fresh
filter. Both cabin filter elements replaced, and a new air filter element. As
a matter of course I also fitted new Bosch wiper blades and refreshed the number
plates. Struggling for anything else to do.....
I use a very experienced older German car specialist for servicing who knows
these cars very well and advises its the best he has ever seen underside and
topside, the major mechanicals are barely even run in. Everyone who sees the
car virtually stops in their tracks such is the dazzling condition, needless to
say I had many offers to buy it prior to advertising.

Condition
The paintwork is without incident and has been loved, its beautiful and has
been used as a third car and weekend whip. The interior still feels special and
unused and smells as new. The carpets and plastics the same, nothing has been
compromised. I am more than familiar with the corrosion issues that these models
can suffer from if not cleaned and stored correctly, I cut my teeth in the motor
trade on these models, nothing to report.

Alloys
Diamond cut rims in immaculate condition, unmarked as they have just been
professionally refinished and cut to a high standard. It took the shop hours
to do them correctly, they said they could not possibly bill me for the time
they had put in, total show class condition and virtually not turned a wheel
since. Refinished by the Wheelpro in Glasgow. Premium tyres all round.
