1997 BMW E39 540i 6-speed manual. 4.4 Liter single-VANOS V8 . BMW Individual build stamp on R turret. Believed to be the only 6 speed manual in the bright red color sold that year in the USA. Vehicle has all options except Navigation and also sports elements of the M5 (lowered M suspension, muffler delete option). I recently spent thousands $'s at BMW certified mechanic on mechanical updates/major engine service (engine, transmission, cooling system). Back to bare metal repaint also recently undertaken as well as full restoration of BBS "octopus" 3-piece alloy wheels that were a BMW option. Interior and exterior are in superb condition and any drive will bring a large smile to your face. Mileage may seem an obstacle but remember this is a 23 year old car and this equates to less than 10 thousand miles/year.
