Clean White Paper: 1995 BMW 540i

The E34 (1987-1996) was the third generation of BMW’s executive class 5-series sedan and it was the first to feature V8 power.  As the high mileage examples of the E34 are driven into the ground, a few nice examples float around waiting for some magical renaissance for used German luxury sedans that may or may not happen.  I say driven ’em while they’re new…ish.  Find this 1995 BMW 540i offered for $6,900 in Lexington, OH via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

From the seller:

For sale is a 1995 BMW 540i manual 5 speed. This car is actually a 530i that had the engine upgraded to the m60b40 engine. This engine came out of a 740i with only 70k miles. It runs and drives great with no powertrain issues from the swap. The car also looks great inside and out. I have extensive service records on this car, and it has absolutely zero rust. Clean and clear title with no accidents. Unfortunately the air conditioning has stopped working, so that will need to be serviced, but that is reflected in the price. I am asking $6900. A factory original 540i with manual transmission would cost two times as much. Please call or txt
