FS - E39 1999 540i Touring and 2002 540i Motorsport - Wellington

Recommended Posts

As part of me clearing out my fleet - due to my illness - we have now decided to sell our 540s.

I've included the chassis numbers - so you can confirm vehicle specs yourself.

Car 1

1999 540iT - Biarritz Blue - black leather - this is our current daily driver.

Chassis: WBADR62070BX98005 - to check the spec

220K - engine rebuilt by Page European at 185K, due to cam chain tensioner abrupt failure (on the page I brought the car!). Has Dr Vanos built spockets fitted to stop the oil drain out

NZ New good spec car, with factory 2 piece alloys and MS suspension

The bad:

There is rust in leading edge of bonnet, bottom of drivers door (due to poor past repair), and glass hatch surround.

I have replacement panels for all of these.

Usual dings and dents for a car this age - some paint delamination on mirrors (and bonnet), and I was also going to repaint the roof.

Usual pixels in main dash issues

Wont lock using key (remote only) - suspect due to the dodgy repair as mentioned above.

Power steering hose leeching causing minor oil leak

The good:

There is a Biarritz Blue parts 528i Touring that can go with the car

I've added factory first aid kit and fire extinguisher mounts

BMW factory towbar, and wiring kit.

Newish Varta Battery fitted (corrrect size)

Recent Work on the car includes:

  1. New front hubs and rotors
  2. New Self leveling Suspension Switches (SLS)
  3. New TFTP piston O-Ring in the SLS pump -actually cured the intermittent SLS failure warning light
  4. New DEPO Headlight covers

Special tools for touring - rear subframe bush puller and tail gate strut remover included in price along with some new spares

I'd like around $4500 for the car but can be a little flexible on price.


Car 2

2002 540iSE (is how its registered - but has the full Motorsport specification) - Silver - black leather

Chassis: WBADN62080GF13460


NZ New - spec'ed with TV, electric rear blind, fold down rear seats and ski bag. I've got a factory first aid kit (unfitted) for the car.

We have only owned the car a short time - and this was going to be a "keeper" due to the great spec and performance.

Spent $1000s - getting rid of engine oil leaks, sorting out the broken and missing parts (like the outer underbody trays), getting a second key

The bad:

Power Steering oil leak - looks to be the reservoir - but could be hoses leeching - havent had time to investigate

Usual dings and dents for a car this age - but presents well

Usual pixels in main dash issues

CD Stacker not functional

Intermittent PDC failure - but self clears

I'd like $5500 for this car -but again flexible on price.



The cars are in Wellington
