Widebody Wagon: 2000 BMW 540i 6-Speed

Take a normal car and turning it into a custom widebody can result in a cool ride or a total pile of ugg, depending on the skill and vision of the fabricator. Another consideration is that most widebody vehicles are two-door coupes, but occasionally you'll see some fender flares on a sedan and today we see them on a wagon.  Find this 2000 BMW 540i 6-Speed offered for $7,900 here on eBay buy-it-now or make-offer located in Tampa, FL.

  1. Well you don't see that every day. The rear flare may have set a world record for length!
    Pretty cool and unique I would just change the wheels. Those are probably 30lbs a piece.

  2. Sorry about the 2 in a row k2 posts
    The copy and paste of the technical data is weak sauce as well
    P225/60HR15 - I don't think so. Looks like some big heavy ass 6 series wheels

  3. “slandered interior”

    Where do I even start?

    1. Typo? I think he meant to say GOT salamander interior.

    2. Or maybe he meant "has slathered interior", due to an excess of hide treatment?

  4. How often do we see "well executed custom", "manual gearbox" and "attainable price" together? I am a big fan of wagons, and this amps up the appearance level. Those door flares are really impressive. Is that a kit? If the mechanical swap was done properly, this thing looks like a decent deal. What am I missing?

  5. Well, no one ever said that fender openings actually have to follow any sort of consistent arc, or that the shape of a fender opening on one side of the car should match it's partner on the other side. It's as if 4 different people each took one corner of the car to work on and they never compared notes.
