I have for sale a 2000 BMW 540i, V8 with 205k miles. Its is Black Pearl with a 6spd manual and the M package. Loaded with all options including a working Nav system and moonroof. Car runs and drives great. I really love driving it. I recently bought the car and it needed a little tlc. No serious mechanical issues, just a really good cleaning and the Nav system did not work, but I bought replacement nav computer and head unit. They were used but function as they should. The head unit does have a few cut marks on the screen, but it does not hurt the functionality. I cleaned, washed, compounded and waxed the outside. As you can see it shows very nice and the paint is very shiny. It has very few dents or marks and you have to look close to see any of them. The interior was cleaned and does not have any cuts or stains. Only interior issue is one of the rear windows does not go down more than an inch. It will go up and down, but only an inch. Don't think this will be a major repair, I just didn't have time to get to it yet. The tires are near new, as are the brake pads all around. I repaired a leak in the power steering lines. They were leaking near the reservoir out of both lines. I replaced the clamps and one is completely dry and the other is just seeping. Not nearly enough to warrant changing out the entire lines. You may even be able to tweak it a little more and stop it completely, but I didn't have an issue with the seeping. I also just changed the oil and what I took out looked very good. The wheels are straight and showed some clear coat flaking, so I painted them black. I also tinted the windows and added the rear spoiler, which is an OEM M5 spoiler. I also customized the exhaust, so it is straight piped from the cats back. It sounds awesome and the looks and sound of this car definitely turns heads.

So why sell it after only a few months if it is so cool. Well basically the wife told me to sell it. It was bought as a 3rd car and toy, but recent unforeseen financial issues have not made it realistic for me to keep. It was definitely a short lived pleasure.

Please feel free to come see and drive the car, you will not be disappointed and will not believe it has just over 200k miles. Place I bought it from serviced it for the previous owner for the last 100k miles and they traded it in on a newer one from them. No joy rides, if you bring funds ready to negotiate, we will take it for a ride.

I have clear title in hand and plenty of more pictures and can also take pics of anything you would like to see specifically. I also have the manuals and original window sticker showing this car listed new for $60k in 2000. Clean car fax with no accidents.

Item is for sale locally and listing can be ended at any time.

2014 BMW 320i

Tue, 24 Dec 2013 11:27:00 EST

When BMW switched its entry level 3 Series, the 328i, from a naturally aspirated, 3.0-liter six-cylinder to a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder, we weren't entirely sure what to think. Sure, from a pure numbers perspective, the new 2.0-liter cooked the old 3.0's goose, delivering more torque at far more accessible engine speeds while boosting horsepower and fuel economy.
While we miss that revvy six-pot, the numbers for the 2.0 were just way too good to pass up. Then we received news of an even less-powerful 2.0-liter 3 Series - the 320i. This was interesting, as it saw BMW delving into a power level previously owned solely by the anemic Lexus IS 250 and its six-cylinder engine.
Could BMW make a sub-200-horsepower sedan that still drove the way we expected a 3 Series to drive? To find out, we borrowed the new 320i for a week of testing.

Preserving automotive history costs big bucks

$1.8 million is spent each year to maintain GM's fleet of 600 production and concept cars.
When at least two of the Detroit Three were on the verge of death a few years back, one of the tough questions that was asked of Ford, General Motors and Chrysler execs - outside of why execs were still taking private planes to meetings - was why each company maintained huge archives of old production and concept vehicles. GM, for example, had an 1,100-vehicle collection when talk of a federal bailout began.

BMW says current M3 sold out, no new AWD M models planned

Mon, 06 May 2013 08:25:00 EST

Car and Driver asked the head of BMW M, Friedrich Nitschke, a few questions about what the go-fast division had in mind for the future, and was rewarded with some enlightening answers. The best news to purist ears is that Nitschke said customers don't want all-wheel drive on their M cars, so it's the rear wheels alone that will propel new product into the future. If you want both an M badge and four driven wheels, it's the X5 M, X6 M and M Performance models you're looking for in the catalog.
"Mixed bag" is the phrase you're looking for regarding the other answers. Nitschke said that future M engines "at the core of their architecture" would "be closer to BMW AG engines" that are optimized for M cars, instead of following in the line of unique marvels like the V10 and naturally aspirated V8. They will keep the high redlines, however, with Nitschke saying "there is room beyond" the 7,000 rpm mark in BMW's current V8 turbos.
Managing weight will keep the same priority for M that it is for every other brand, so electrically assisted power steering is coming, as is an "unconventional" materials mix. At the smaller end of the M scale, Nitschke described three-cylinder engines as "attractive," saying that the brand can produce more than 310 horsepower from a three-pot.
