    1999 E39 540i supercharged

    1999 E39 540i with VF Engineering/TTFS supercharger setup

    Colour is Anthracite Grey and has grey leather interior. Standard E39 features such as sunroof, power windows, power seats and power mirrors.

    Comes with rear park distance sensors and pre-LCI nav system/TV with 6 stacker CD. LCI Xenon with angel eyes, 5 speed tiptronic ZF 5HP24 automatic. 19 inch wheels with 245 front and 275 wide rear tyres. Comes with M sport/M5 style bumpers and side mirrors. A VF Engineering/Vortech V3 centrifugal supercharger has been fitted, along with AEM Water/methanol injection system, Tial QRJ BPV, M60 larger intake manifold, custom Sureflo dual 2.5" exhaust and Alpina V8 Roadster 5HP24 TCU software flash. The VF kit has been further upgraded further to incorporate a 3.25" pulley (3.8" VF-E stock) and custom tuning done remotely by Tuning Tech Frank Smith (TTFS). Kit installed at Advan Performance in Sydney and makes 261rwkw. Can supply dyno by email if interested. Stock VF-E boost is just shy of 6 psi and 3.25" system just shy of 10psi. Comes with all books and keys (2 x remotes, 1 x valet and 1x plastic) and new Varta battery.

    Car drives really well and I am only selling as I dont drive it enough. Being 18 years old it has a few small issues such as rear passenger window regulator reeds replacing, the drivers one probably should be replaced too. Suspension is a bit tired but all in all its a great car that just needs a new good home.

    Dropped to $14,000

    Thinking if no one wants to buy it I will consider going to a smaller pulley and getting more tuning done.

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    I might just keep and work on it some more if it doesn't go. I have seen some headers that might work, as well as a 2.8" pulley and more tuning would make this perfect. Supercharger won't be able to handle a pulley much smaller than 2.8" - new and bigger crank pulley would be too much work for me.

    Ya fucking wot cunt? I'm a buy me a vulva.

    As much as I really really want this, I don't want another project more, no matter how minimal the work. Besides, nopics won't swap out of her beasty into this as no room for kids bikes. Glws and if it doesn't go, more mods makes sense.
