Most reliable car I owned

Spacious and great performance, premium audio system, parking sensors, sound system install but if needed we can negotiate a price for everything. I have extra amplifier to add in you need to put in voice box, car speakers are great.


Everything a BMW Should Be

Having a 300-horsepower V8 in a 3900 pound full size wagon seems a bit silly, but this car is absolutely the most joyful thing to drive. The E39 540iT wagon is the epitome of an all-purpose car; it's fast, with a 0-60 time of about 5.9 seconds in fair weather and driving dynamics that rival those of much lighter sports cars - It's comfortable, having a beautifully upholstered leather interior along with wonderfully contoured seats and a graceful and quiet ride - It's practical, as it can sit 5 members of a jazz band along with their instruments in the cargo hold (I speak from experience) - and it's even fairly reliable and easy to work on, with most maintenance being easier to complete than even the Japanese marques that I've worked on (Brakes, wheel bearings, suspension work, transmission work have all been easier than ANY other car I've done the work on). My 2000 BMW 540iT wagon is the successor to the many BMWs I've owned in my life, and even over two M5s, three 740iLs, two 525is, another 540i and a couple of Benzs, this is my absolute favorite car I've experienced. That is, as long as we don't use the sound system as a factor.


Luxury on a dime

A well taken-care of BMW 540 with not much over 100K miles - a fantastic second car! Hope to put another 100 on it.
