Hi I'm selling my 540i V8. Great car, lots of power and fun to drive. (understatement)
M62B44 V8 engine, Steptronic Tranny. Quite a gem.
1 or 2 niggles:
-Rough idle, BMW said cylinder 2 is misfiring, suspecting injector.
-Bad power steering pump, squeaking! Bought 2nd hand one but haven't fitted it.
-Little vibration between 130-150km/hr. Wheels are balanced (but didn't check alignment). Car does not drift though so alignment should be fine. Could be a worn thrust arm bearing.
-Auto not changing up, so currently driving it on manual mode (steptronic). Suspect ABS Sensor. I actually prefer manual anyway.
-Bonnet cable broken. R500 at BMW.
-Missing right rear view mirror cover.
-Central locking currently disconnected. Haven't had a chance to go to Auto Elec. to sort it out.
So look to spend about 20k to get this beast in lekker shape.
Still an awesome car though even with these little problems. Still takes off like jet and handles like a charm. Hate to sell, but can't afford it at the moment.
Did I say the interior is immaculate? Super comfy, 1st class! 6 CD changer in boot.
