1995 540i w/ Six Speed Manual Tranny

1995 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan
Review
With a budget of $20,000, I went to a couple of dealerships and drove some nice cars, like a 2000 Maxima and a 2002 Altima. First, I really don't like front wheel drive cars, which doesn't leave one with many options these days. Plus these cars (even the Maxima) seemed a bit sluggish. Then, I found a '95 BMW 5401 w/ a six-speed manual tranny. I asked about it and the salesguy said, "Oh, it's a manual shift...we can't seem to sell it." Well, for me...a six-speed is a real selling point. I took it for a spin and I could'nt believe the torque from that beast ! It had soooo much power and it handled so much better than the other cars I had driven.
Favorite Features
Big V-8, six speed tranny, wood dash and knob, sporty handling.
Suggested Improvements
Needs bigger wheels and tires. (Comes stock with 15" wheels...OUCH! Also, the stock stereo could be better.
