Interior: black leather
Transmission: 6-spd manual
Details: Purchased with 62k miles from a BMW enthusiast in Madison, WI. The car came equipped with rear sunshades, cold weather, sport package, and the 2003 M-sport options (M front airdam and rear bumper, black headliner, and ///M badging in various areas.
Sadly, I sold the original M-Parallel wheels to finance the purchase of a used set of 19″ BBS RS-GT wheels for a killer deal that I couldn’t turn down. They are 19×8 and 19×9.5″ in E39 fitment, quite the score on craigslist. I have a set of 18×8.5″ BBS RK wheels for snow tires.
Since purchase in Feb ’09 I haven’t done too much. Redline fluids in the diff and transmission, painted the kidney grills black, and debadged the 540i on the trunk.
