How much for this 540i 6-speed Sport?

I'm planning on selling my 2000 540i 6-speed Sport (78K miles). What do you think is a reasonable asking price?

It's got the premium package and sports package and it's in excellent condition. All maintenance is up to date and I've already replaced the radiator, water pump, MAF, thermostat, fan clutch, and has a new dash board cluster (fixed the missing pixel problem). The vehicle also has many upgrades, including:
  • Angle Eye Headlights
  • LED Celis Smoked Taillights
  • Smoked Side Marker Lights
  • M-Technic M5 Body Kit: front & rear bumpers
  • M-Parallel Staggerd Wheels : 18” x 8.5” front, 18” x 9.0” rear
  • M5 Rear Deck Spoiler
  • M5 Black Front Hood Grill
  • M5 Chrome Dashboard Bezel Rings
  • Brembo Cross Drilled Rotors
  • AFE Cold Air Intake (increased HP)
  • Eisenmann Race Exhaust (increased HP: exhaust_compare1.wmv)
  • PowerChip Gold Engine Software Upgrade (increased HP)
  • UUC Performance Clutch
  • UUC Evo3 Short Shifter
  • AC Schnitzer Performance Pedals
  • BMW Homelink Integrated Garage Door Opener

I'd probably start out asking $20K-22K for a car like that. I wouldn't expect to get that much from a buyer like, say, me though. It's absolutely gorgeous. Mad props.

you might want to start in mid 20s - which is obviously way overpriced, but include OBO option.
but a fair/reasonable price is 18-20k

Well, it's officially for sale. I posted it on eBay tonight: (eBay Motors: BMW : 5-Series (item 200029275220 end time Sep-26-06 18:49:46 PDT))

We'll see how this turns out. Each week that it doesn't sell will cause me to lower my price. Better to start high and work down.

That's a beautiful 5er!
I would say go for $21-$23k
It also depends on where you are located, FL is a good spot.

I sold my excellent condition 2000 black540i auto (sport package) with 98k miles
several months back for $19750. I started asking for $24k and had it on auto trader for about over half a year! Well, I was in no hurry...undecided to sell.
