A must see!
1995 BMW 540i M-Sport
For those who don’t know BMW has always produced elite sport vehicles. The M series from BMW stands alone in performance and handling. As a part of introducing the M technology into vehicles the BMW 5 series got its own touch of modifications. M-Sport models contain M upgrades from the bigger M3 and M5 models. This 540i sport is one of the Rarest. Only 200 1995 540i M Sport were made and only 136 were available for sale in the US. You are now looking at one of those 136 with the 6 speed with so low miles.
Before I continue I want to advise you to look further into the work done on these cars. When you view the site my car is the 1995 540i Sport (US)
This site has been dedicated to the 540i m sport. Please look through it to see what it takes to make a 540i M Sport.
More about the Car
I bought the car under a year ago with 55000 miles on it. Came from a great owner who really took care of his BMW, he purchased a new M5 and had to part with this 540. The car had been taken care of so well it was an honor to own this car. I took it and updated all of its service requirements.
All work has been performed by Tony Mann, a certified BMW mechanic, at Mann Motorsports. You can visit his website at tmannmotorsports.com.
You may contact Tony at 336 662 9070 during normal business hours. He has performed all work on this car and knows it inside and out.

Items I have replaced on the car: As time goes parts require replacement.
Radiator – Replaced along with new surge tank
Heater Core – New
Clutch Assembly – New stock clutch
Windshield – I caught a stone on the highway and replaced with new glass by professional BMW glass repairman.
Exhaust – Since the vehicle is a no longer bound by emission regulations I had the clogged catalytic converters removed. Also the muffler has been removed to give a serious deep roar. This vehicle sounds like one of a kind. It has a very noticeable race tone. I still have the original muffler or an inexpensive flow master option will cut out the throaty sounds but maintain a level of performance sound. I will answer further questions about this.
Window Tint – I prefer a level of tint that protects my eyes from blaring sun and night lights. It is currently rated at 20% all around the car. The front windshield is tinted at 40% to remove glare and protect the inside from harmful UV rays. I can have this professionally removed if desired and deposit has been made.
Sound System – I still have to original radio but I wanted more quality sound. I had a Alpine CDA- 9887 head unit installed that works well with Harmon speakers.
In conjunction with the head unit:
I also have 2 10”-inch MTX subs in the rear of the car. All of this was installed by a professional at Custom Hi-Fi of Greensboro, NC.
