hi guys i have been reading a load of bmw sites recently while lokking for my perfect beemer.

i knew i needed power (528 minimum engine). and could not be bothered with gears. I definately wanted leather sports seats, cd changer, m steering wheel and nice looking alloys (I hate the turbines). i didnt want silver leather interior. also wanted something a little sporty looking in a good colour.

anyway after a lot of searching i finaly found the one. here are the specs.

1999 bmw 540i
steptronic, black montana leather sports interior, tri coloured stiching m steering wheel, vavona wood trim, clear front side and rear light upgrade(bmw fit), gloss black paintwork, upgraded alloys 5 spoke bmw 17"(bmw fit), 6 cd changer, bmw business cassette deck, onboard computer, auto dim mirrors inside and out. rain sensor wipers, headlamp wash mtech suspension (bmw fit) AC schitzer full stainless steel exhaust (£2500 upgrade sounds fantastic ) AC schnitzer engine management chip. AC schintzer front racing valance (clips to existing bumper), m5 rear small spoiler. full bmw history 63000 miles.

here is a couple of pics. i will take some more tommorow. this car is extremely fast. its superb. highly recomended.
