540 - good choice!

ReviewI've had my '94 540i a little over a
year now. Its a pleasure to drive any
and every time I take it out. The 4.0
liter engine with 285 hp is one of
BMW's best - no doubt. And despite
being a v-8 machine, I average 19.5
miles to the gallon. The computer
controlled 5-speed automatic
transmission does an excellent job
determining how you want the car to
shift. (My biggest problem has however
also been the transmission, failing at
only 102K miles. The rebuild cost
$2600.) I have never had any other
major problems. The car is fast,
handles superbly, stops on a dime,
looks good, and is practical.
Best FeaturesEngine, brakes, top speed ;)
Worst FeaturesBMW chose GM as its automatic transmission supplier. A big mistake in my opinion. Tail lights fail every other month.
