Deal find: 2000 BMW E39 540i with only 112k miles

If you are in New Jersey or close to it, there is a heck of a deal on a 2000 BMW E39 540i that only has 112k miles on it and is listed for $4,900. Best part is, it is a 6 speed manual transmission car with the 4.4L V8 engine. It apparently has been “lovingly cared for by BMW enthusiasts” and features Titanium Silver over Standard Gray Leather on Original 17” Style 32 wheels. The paint is in good shape with lots of shine left. There are minor dings from over the years, but nothing significant that would take away from the overall look of the car. The interior is in very good shape for the age. Motor runs strong and transmission is solid.

The seller notes several great highlights:

  • Sport package
  • Low mileage for a 20 year old car
  • Leather is in good shape
  • Body is in good shape

Also the seller notes some issues:

  • Right side turn indicators
  • Right valve cover gasket is leaking oil
  • Carfax report shows an accident
  • Slight shimmy at 50mph which is a result of the thrust arms needing to be replaced
