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.

For over a year now, we've been hearing about a potential partnership between Toyota and BMW on everything from sports cars to lithium-ion batteries, but one of the first cooperative projects between these two automakers could bring Toyota's hydrogen fuel cell technology to a BMW vehicle. Reuters is reporting that an announcement is likely to be made as soon as later this week regarding a BMW fuel cell vehicle that could be in production by 2020 with a prototype running around by 2015.
The last we heard of Toyota's fuel cell technology, it was in the FCV-R Concept that we saw at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, but there is no word how far along in development this system is. If it does come to fruition, such a vehicle for BMW would build on the automaker's commitment to hydrogen that started with the Hydrogen 7, which unlike a fuel cell vehicle, simply ran on hydrogen fuel rather than converting it to electricity for use in motors. We're definitely interested where this Toyota/BMW tie up could be headed.
I recently spent some time behind the wheel of the BMW M235i and, well, I didn't love it. Sure, it's a great car, but I just didn't truly bond with it the way I have with previous M cars. What I had hoped for was a proper successor to the 1 Series M Coupe I fell in love with in 2011, but what I got instead was just a sporty 2 Series that didn't exactly stir my emotions in the same way.
But now there's this: the honest-to-goodness BMW M2. Previously, spy photographers captured a development-mule M2, but this is the real thing, in its full prototype body. Notice the aggressive front fascia that mimics the M3/M4, the more more robust wheel/tire package, and the M-standard quad exhaust outlets around back. This thing sure does look the business.
Details are slim as of this writing, but rumors suggest power will come from BMW's now-ubiquitous N55 turbocharged 3.0-liter six, with output somewhere in the 360- to 380-horspower range. The seven-speed M dual-clutch transmission seems like a good fit here, too. As does a six-speed manual transmission (here's hoping).
2014 BMW 5 Series starts at $50,425* and gets a new diesel, 5 Series GT starts at $60,925* [w/video]Sun, 19 May 2013 17:16:00 EST
BMW itself says it is making "Precise modifications to the design" of the facelifted, sixth-generation 5 Series, and this is the result. The 2014 5 Series will come in four flavors - sedan, Touring, Gran Turismo and ActiveHybrid 5 - the biggest news probably the addition of a diesel engine for the US market.
When they go on sale in August, the 528i sedan will start at $50,425, a $1,700 increase over the 2013 model, and if you want xDrive that adds $2,300 to the price across the model range. The 535d employs a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline six-cylinder diesel with 255 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque and starts at $56,025. BMW portends "substantial fuel efficiency gains over its gasoline-fueled counterpart," but the exact numbers won't come until closer to the on-sale date. The $64,825, top-dog 550i holds pat with 4.4-liter, twin turbo V8, with output upped to 445 hp and 480 lb-ft - an increase of 45 hp and 30 lb-ft of torque. The outputs haven't changed on the twin-turbo four-cylinder in the 528 nor the 3.0-liter six-cylinder gasoline engine in the 535, and *all prices include the $925 destination charge. The engines are also fitted with a coasting mode that uncouples the powertrain when rolling downhill.
Outside there are new "contour lines" for the grille and air intakes, slimmer taillights and elements that accentuate the car's width - as if that were necessary. Xenon adaptive headlights will be standard along with side indicator lights on the rearview mirrors, the options list adds LED headlights, the Luxury Line and Modern Line packages. The former package adds chrome trim to certain exterior elements, the latter adds matte chrome trim.
