e39 Bmw 540i 6speed manual 4.4V8
183,xxx original miles on chassis (Newer motor)
Clean title under my name
Current Smog
A/C works perfectly

Let’s cut right to the chase… I brought this car to life after doing extensive mechanical and esthetic work . My intention was to bring it back to OE specs and improve it from there. Previous owner did a few things that were headed in the right direction, however, there was quite a bit of detail involved and other major work that was needed . The M62 is in amazing condition and has ZERO leaks with excellent compression throughout all cylinders. The six speed manual transmission is also in amazing condition and shifts flawlessly.

This e39 is one of a kind as there are not many that can outperform an M5 all around. In addition, this particular M62 non-vanos is a more desirable motor to use as it does not have the typical timing guide/chain issues that most m62tu’s have (1998 and later).

Some things I have recently done to the car are:
-Timing cover gaskets (Guides are in perfect condition)
-Valve cover gaskets and grommets (Black wrinkle coat on valve covers)
-New NGK BPR7EK plugs (Colder step)
-Water pump
-e31 Lower temp thermostat (95°C)

-Oil Pan Gaskets
-Resealed/rebuilt Supercharger

-New o2 sensors
-3 inch X piped exhaust with dual resonators and quad tips
-Eurotek 19×9.5 inch wheels with brand new 245/35 fronts and 255/35 rears
-New M5 front bumper (Original was cracked)
-M5 front lip/splitter
-Paint matched bumper, hood, trunk and rear bumper
-Matte Black kidney grills
-Yakima roof rack
-New Windshield
-New window tint
-New battery
-New Timing Chain tensioner
-New front window regulators

I have lightened the car up quite a bit due to the deletion of various plastics, shields, and various accessories I didn’t find necessary. The reason for this was the fact that I wanted a daily driver with some “track” type qualities. I am aware that this goes against the “purist” mentality and some people are not fond of this idea but in my opinion, reducing weight is always a benefit for “performance”. Some of these accessories/items have been:
-Cruise control delete
-Traction control delete (Asc)
-Windshield washer reservoir delete
-Rear window motors/regulators delete (Due to regulators not working)
-Heater valves, aux water pump and hoses delete

Motor was swapped 20k ago with a E38 M62 by previous owner. I have done an immense amount of work and feel comfortable taking this car anywhere. Not only is it reliable for an m62 powered e39 but outperforms an m5 and many other “high powered” cars on the road.

Please email me and I will get back to you asap.

Serious inquiries only.
