There is an old Latin saying: de gustibus non est disputandum, which means “in matters of taste, there can be no disputes.” Now, those old Latin dudes were good at building aqueducts, designing the calendar, and minting coins with their faces on them…but did they really expect us to believe that there isn’t an objective perfect (a paradigm of beauty, perhaps) in this world? Ha! And to prove it, I’m going to let you guys tell me if this next car is awesome or awful. Find this 2000 BMW 540iT 6-Speed offered for an undisclosed chunk of cash somewhere near Chicago, IL via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
From the seller:
2000 bmw 5 series
title status: clean
2000 540it Touring
Testing the waters for my beloved Touring. Has a M5 interior/exterior swap. Engine which is stock. Rare caramel extended leather interior. Also has a even more rare 6 speed swap done professionally by Fluid Motor Union. Original Hellrot red with a matte clear coat finish. Has 20″ style 32 from a 740i (and 2 other sets of oem wheels). The audio system is top notch – all FOCAL speakers/amps with a bitOne processor- Pioneer headunit. Sounds amazing.
Car is in great mechanical shape. I have all repair/upgrade records since 30k on the odo. The timing chains have been repaired and just completed a suspension refresh. Was a southern car Arizona, Tennessee and finally Chicago. Zero body rust and lived its life in a garage. I rarely drive it since its my 3rd car, mostly for daddy duty. Currently at 13X,XXX miles but miles will slowly creep up.
Looking for a trade for something unique such as M3, M5, S2000, TL Type-S, Datsons, wagons, STi, etc. Also considering selling it, so make me an offer.
