Finished in Sterling Grey Metallic over Grey Montana Leather upholstery this 2003 BMW E39 540i Touring is powered by a 4.4-liter V8 engine and features the optional M Sport Package. In addition to a 5-speed Steptronic automatic transmission with a low-ratio rear axle and high-stall torque converter, this sought-after package includes an M Sport aerodynamic bodykit, M Sport suspension, M Sport interior accessories, and M Sport wheels. This E39 was owned by a BMW technician prior to the seller’s purchase and benefits from extensive recent service including replacement of the timing chains, VANOS system, valve cover gaskets, brakes, tires, and transmission fluid. Said to be one of only 182 Touring M Sport versions imported to the United States and only 15 to have come finished in this color combination, this 540i is now being offered for auction out of New Hampshire while showing approximately 102k miles on the odometer,

This E39 is finished in Sterling Grey Metallic and features high-gloss black Shadowline trim as part of the M Sport Package along with the M Sport Aerokit which adds revised bumpers and side skirts. The car also features xenon headlights, front fog lights, black roof rails, and 17” Style 66 M Sport alloy wheels dressed in new Hankook tires. The seller notes the bottoms of the doors and rocker panels have been refinished to address chips, a dent was repaired on the left rear rocker, some stone chips have been touched up on the hood, and one small imperfection is present on the trunk lid. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a CARFAX report showing damage to the right front end in 2003.

The cabin is appointed with Grey Montana Leather upholstery accented by Fine Wood Trim and M Sport Package accessories including a black headliner, an M Sport footrest, M Sport door sills, and a three-spoke M Sport multifunction steering wheel. Other equipment includes heated front comfort seats with lumbar support and memory, an electric glass sunroof, rear window roller shades, automatic climate control, and an onboard computer. The seller notes the interior was recently detailed including steam cleaning the carpets, sanitizing the air vents, and conditioning the leather. The cup holders beneath the radio were also replaced. All gauges and accessories are fully functional, although some pixels have failed on the LCD instrument cluster display.

This 540i is equipped with a naturally aspirated 4.4-liter M62 V8 engine featuring double-VANOS variable valve timing and an output of up to 286 HP and 325 lb.-ft of torque. The M Sport Package adds a 5-speed Steptronic automatic transmission with a 3.15:1 performance rear axle and a high-stall torque converter which provide quicker acceleration. The M Sport Package also includes a lower sport suspension with firmer struts, springs, and sway bars. Service completed within the last three months is said to include the replacement of the timing chains and guides, VANOS system, valve cover gaskets, brake rotor & pads, a transmission service, and a four-wheel alignment.

This sale will include owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, some service records, and a clean title.

The seller would like you to know: “Thanks for checking out my 2003 BMW 540iT M wagon. Although there isn't much on repair records, I can say that it has been well cared for over the years. Always garage-kept. When I received the car I went through it to make it as nice as possible for the next owner. It is ready to go and drives amazing. It's ready for many more years of enjoyment and adventure on some curvy roads. Hey, you can even fit the family. I sure have. Just a great car. Good luck bidding!”

    whoops....hitting refresh helps! Now I see them! Thank you

  • BigBooter (registered bidder) 6 months, 4 weeksago

    @vwprok37 - I don't think I can see the jack points in any of the pics. Maybe it was too late to add them?

  • BigBooter (registered bidder) 6 months, 4 weeksago

    All in all, this is a really good buy for a 540iT. Great color. Invest in some cosmetics - this is a sweet ride. Kinda bummed I missed it....being only an hour drive away! :-) Congrats to both buyer and seller!

    I just added pictures of the Jack points

  • vwprok37 (seller) 6 months, 4 weeksago

    @kimbatiger Good Question. I do believe the owner before me parked it due it needed timming chains and didn't have the funds to have it done as it is a very expensive job. Rest assure its all been done now and the car needs nother and will give the new owner many trouble free miles.

  • vwprok37 (seller) 6 months, 4 weeksago

    @BigBooter Hi, Yes there was some surface rust on the inside bottom of the dirvers door. It was just superficial and it was all taken car of better then factory. It was ground down to bare metal, acid etched, epoxied, seam sealed, epoxied again and painted facotry color. better then new and done right. Jack points are rock solid. I dont know if I can get a picture then before the end of the auction but I will try. Might be a few hours before the end so check back. Thanks for the question.

  • kimbatiger (registered bidder) 6 months, 4 weeksago

    Hi. Just wondering if there's any explanation for only 3,000-ish miles since 2012? There may not be, but its curious.

  • BigBooter (registered bidder) 6 months, 4 weeksago

    I saw this car in person last December and it was NOT in this condition. The current owner has done a lot of work to refurbish this car and it shows. I do have a question though. If I recall correctly, one of the front doors had some relatively significant rust/corrosion on the inside. Has that been addressed? Also - any close ups of the jack points?

    How does the air conditioning work?

  • pawerks37 7 monthsago

    @lamacan Transmission on this car is perfect and shifts flawlessly. It has been completely serviced including trans fluid flush, filter and fresh correct BMW fluid. As for problems with these transmissions I have not heard of any with the 2003's. I know earlier 540's had some software issues but was all sorted by 2003. Remember this is a completely different trans from a reg 540i. Different gear ratio and torque converter.

  • lamacan (registered bidder) 7 monthsago

    any major work done on the transmission other than changing oil? i have owned a few of these and every single one of them needed the transmission replaced at or near 100,000 miles.

    @Steveduva They will issue a 10 day plate I believe. You will have to go to a DMV to get one. There is one right in Epping NH.

    I have checked out this car in person and it presents very well. It's a clean driver with all the big maintenance topics covered. If you are in the market for a V8 Euro wagon, this is the one to watch.

  • pawerks37 7 monthsago

    @Tkotchek They were an option but I checked the build sheet on this car and it did not come with them. Kinda makes it even more rare! Thanks for the great question.

  • Tkotchek (registered bidder) 7 monthsago

    Were the comfort seats a factory option on this car? Typically they came with Sport seats...
