I'm throwing my 540/6 up for sale. I'm by no means motivated or desperate, this just isn't the right car for me right now. I love the car, it's just not right for a broke college student with a family. If I were single and had no responsibilities there's no way I would part with it. Ideal trade would be a 2000 or later 2.5 RS 4 door 5 speed.
1995 540 6 speed, 140,XXX miles. Oxford green over tan leather. Overall in excellent condition, interior is nearly mint except for usual wear on the driver's side seat bolster. For those that don't know, the E34 540/6 was a one year only sport edition of the 540. It had upgraded brakes, suspension, bodywork, the sweet M5 sport seats, and was pretty well loaded. This is NOT an M-Sport, but still a fairly rare car.
Excellent running and driving car, never had any trouble with it. Records back through 70k or so. What I've done in the last 7k: thrust arms with 750 bushings, tie rods, center link, 3mm spring pads, rear dogbones, Racing King subframe inserts, rear sway bar links, Hella clear corners, new chrome kidneys, new roundels, new 17x8.5 M-Contour reps with polished lips, 235/45 Avon Tech M550s, both oxygen sensors, Royal Purple in the transmission and rear diff, as well as a ton of little stuff. I am **** as hell about cars, I removed all the door panels, replaced the broken clips, tightened the wood and armrests, re-glued the pockets. Also tightened every screw I could find, lubed everything lube-able, etc. Thus, it's a very tight car. It also has a Jim C. chip (have original), Bilsteins, E39 M5 shift ****, Sony ES head unit with CD changer, and a B&B cat back that sounds awesome.
Exterior is nice, from five feet it looks nearly perfect. It has a clear title and clean Carfax, but has been in a minor accident. The hood, driver's side fender and front door has been replaced with OEM R-DOT parts, fit and finish is like new. The entire car was also re-sprayed, not a show car job but not Maaco either. One dent on hood, one on trunk lid (see pics). Also very light hail damage, just a few dents that you have to look very hard to see. Minor door dings as expected, they don't even show up in pics. None of it is anything a little PDR wouldn't take care of.
Mechanically it is awesome, very reliable, rides and handles great. With the suspension rebuilt there's none of the typical E34 shimmy/shake, it's just tight and smooth. No oil usage, perfect reliability. 300 HP and a 6 speed make for a fast and fun family car.
I'm asking $9000 obo, or would consider trades for something with 4 doors and a manual gearbox. Car + cash trades would be ideal, I'm doing this because I'm in college, have a family, and am broke, but would consider whatever. Please email me at jessup3 at ***.net. Thanks!
