Say the name Hartge Alpina or Dinan to a BMW fan and you ll get instant nods of understanding and respect. Dinan is rightfully considered America s foremost BMW tuner. Steve Dinan s and his Morgan Hill California-based company have been tastefully modifying BMW cars since 1979 upgrading Bimmer engines suspensions brakes and wheels. With only 65 000 miles this 2001 Dinan 540is shows that it has been babied though out its life. Regarding the year the 2001 model year marked a face lift year for the e39 5-series. BMW updated the E39 with newer clear-lens tail side marker and headlights which first displayed the now-popular angel eyes. Rear tail lights were changed to wave-guide LEDs (Hella the OEM refers to these lights as CELIS ) while the side and rear turn signals were changed from amber lenses to clear. and the front bumper now featured rounded fog lights. Internally many changes were made to electronics items such as window regulators and the air conditioning were updated. The front grill was also changed to a new more pronounced design. From the factory this 540is MT6 was one of 600 equipped with the M-Sport Package including 17 Wheels and performance tires firmer M-Sport suspension M-Sport badges on the sport steering wheel shift knob and door sills. Other factory cosmetic upgrades include Shadowline trim - a desirable glossy black trim finish. Of course the anthracite paint is a gorgeous and refined color. Silent like a bullet train except at full throttle when you can hear the intake growl (well it s still a BMW). The feel is rock solid at speed. The brakes are smooth and stop as they should though some driving would make them feel better. New transmission and engine mounts ensure smooth shifting and control of the massive torque of the M62TUB44 BMW 4.4 liter V8. The car has a new clutch and dual-mass flywheel that will ensure proper clutch function for years to come. The interior is nearly spotless but even better than you would expect for a 65 000 mile car. The stock exhaust remains on the car. The BBS Style 42 wheels have beautiful polished lips and painted faces with a few blemishes or peeling clearcoat (I can t imagine they are perfect. Cosmetically excellent the car is remarkably clean and presentable. This 540 proudly displays the exclusive DINAN badge on the trunk. The Dinan modifications on this car include tasteful and purposeful upgrades to elevate the performance and enjoyment of this car without lessening it s comfort or reliability. This car is significantly faster than a standard 540i. It is deceptively fast because it is so quiet and smooth. Approaching corners and bends at 100mph becomes common place once you realize that you don t need to slow down to much for them and then you are promptly going 100mph again... not that I ve done this. If you ve not driven a Dinan 5 you will be impressed. I still am. Please message me with further questions STELLYWALDRUP65(at)outlook.com
