The time has finally come...I'm selling my beloved 545i given that I have too may cars and not enough time to drive them. I work way more than I'd like to drive and it's not worth it for me to just let this car sit.

This car has been owned by a BMW's not the same junk 5 series you see on craigslist with no maintenance. I've owned BMW's all my life and i'm not a mechanic by any means, but love to learn about these cars, drive them and maintain them. I've religously maintained this car, and for anyone who knows BMW's they will drive forever if you maintain them properly. I'd like this car to go to someone who cares about it as much as I did as they don't make them like this anymore.

The naturally aspirated V8 engine in this car is a rocket and brings a smile to your face everytime you accelerate. It can still beat many of the newer twin turbo garbage cars you see nowadays.

For those of you who know about these engines, they are known for carbon build up after some mileage which causes the secondary air injection pump to go off and does not let you pass inspection in NJ. The carbon build up was cleaned from this engine and does not need to be addressed for at least another 100k miles. AGA Carbon removal tool was used.
No check engine lights or misfires whatsoever. Car drives straight and smooth with no issues.
inspection valid until 2020

Asking $5000 or best offer
