I have for sale a 2000 BMW 540i, V8 with 205k miles. Its is Black Pearl with a 6spd manual and the M package. Loaded with all options including a working Nav system and moonroof. Car runs and drives great. I really love driving it. I recently bought the car and it needed a little tlc. No serious mechanical issues, just a really good cleaning and the Nav system did not work, but I bought replacement nav computer and head unit. They were used but function as they should. The head unit does have a few cut marks on the screen, but it does not hurt the functionality. I cleaned, washed, compounded and waxed the outside. As you can see it shows very nice and the paint is very shiny. It has very few dents or marks and you have to look close to see any of them. The interior was cleaned and does not have any cuts or stains. Only interior issue is one of the rear windows does not go down more than an inch. It will go up and down, but only an inch. Don't think this will be a major repair, I just didn't have time to get to it yet. The tires are near new, as are the brake pads all around. I repaired a leak in the power steering lines. They were leaking near the reservoir out of both lines. I replaced the clamps and one is completely dry and the other is just seeping. Not nearly enough to warrant changing out the entire lines. You may even be able to tweak it a little more and stop it completely, but I didn't have an issue with the seeping. I also just changed the oil and what I took out looked very good. The wheels are straight and showed some clear coat flaking, so I painted them black. I also tinted the windows and added the rear spoiler, which is an OEM M5 spoiler. I also customized the exhaust, so it is straight piped from the cats back. It sounds awesome and the looks and sound of this car definitely turns heads.
Item is for sale locally and listing can be ended at any time.

Late last year, Mercedes-AMG worked up a concept car called the Vision Gran Turismo. It presented it at the Los Angeles Auto Show, but that wasn't the point: the point was that it would feature in Gran Turismo 6 on the PlayStation 3. It wasn't the first concept created specifically for the popular driving simulator - following similar projects by Citroën and Red Bull Racing - and as we reported just a month later, it wouldn't be the last. What we have here is the next.
Looking like an even more extreme version of the M235i Racing, the BMW Vision Gran Turismo concept builds on "the tradition of the successful BMW touring cars of the 1970s" in a heart-pumping, if unfortunately strictly virtual form. It's got more extreme aero than the aforementioned M235i Racing and a striking take on the M division's signature light blue, dark blue and red stripe over white livery.
Underneath the digital bonnet sits the same 3.0-liter inline six as the M235i, but pumping out a prodigious (if theoretical) 549 horsepower - far more than the 333 hp in the actual Racing version or the 320 hp in the roadgoing model. Of course BMW has given it an ideal 50:50 front-rear weight distribution and a curb weight of 2,600 lbs - nearly a thousand pounds less than the roadgoing M235i.
Santa Claus might have his eight reindeer - or nine, when it's foggy - to help him deliver presents in most parts of the world, but in southern California, it looks like he's traded up from Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and company to BMW, Yamaha and Ducati. RNickeyMouse is usually the place to check out spectacular motorcycle crashes on video along LA's Mulholland Drive, but a recent video caught a trio of Santas carving up the iconic, twisty road.
The three Santas are together, riding what appears to be a BMW S1000RR, Yamaha R1 and a hard-to-tell custom bike that could be a Ducati 1098. The video, which is posted below, also catches a bonus Santa riding solo on another S1000RR. Happy Christmas to all, and to all a cool bike!
While BMW makes plenty of machinery to keep enthusiasts interested, its most enticing models are often based on more ordinary ones. That's what made the arrival of the i8 so captivating, emerging as the first stand-alone BMW sports coupe since the M1. But if its dual purpose - trying its best to both embrace the earth and traverse it rapidly - somehow left you disappointed, the next development could prove to fix that.
According to Automobile, BMW is working on a more potent i8S model. The hardcore version of the hybrid sports car would offer more power and a stiffened chassis to make it that much more aggressive. The Bavarian automaker is reportedly still evaluating two potential powertrain options: The first would pair a 2.0-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder good for 320 horsepower to an electric motor with another 204 hp. The second would use a 3.0-liter straight six with 480 hp and an electric motor with 109 hp. Both would be mated to a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission and an integrated starter motor packing an extra 27 hp.
Either way, we'd be looking at a combined output well in excess of 500 horsepower - far more than the existing i8's 228-hp turbo three and 129-hp electric motor - dropping the 0-62 time down from 4.1 seconds to an estimated 3.5. Couple that to a more advanced carbon chassis, wider tires and other goodies, and the i8 would be transformed into a far more capable performance machine than it already is.
