The truly amazing and rare 2003 E39 6spd M-Sport. This car has been an experience with incredible performance and reliability. This is a spacious yet fast luxury sedan with a 290 hp V8 6 speed transmission creating a 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds. Only 51 total 2003 540i M Sport 6 speed Sterling Gray delivered to USA and this one has no rust! Motor runs strong and will continue for years to come, transmission and clutch are smooth, suspension is quiet but slightly stiffer than the non M-Sport models. Some other key differences are seats, M5 bumper, rear bumper diffuser, 6 speed, steering wheel and ///M badges on side and door trims. Slotted rotors with plenty of rotor life and pads left. All windows and electrics work, sunroof. Speakers sound great with aux cord. Cold AC and hot heat. The only issues are some of the pixels on the radio display out and some sun fade on the back.
