1995 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


Simply put the best car you can buy for a few grand. Build quality/ride/handling/braking rivals new cars. Steering is ok, loads up well, good feedback but poor on center and is not as quick as modern cars. V8 with a 6spd manual (proper) gear box is a dream. These things take a good deal of maintenance and repair, simple as that (find me a 16+ year old car that doesnt'!). Parts are reasonable, labor is pricey. Parts availability and technical info is outstanding (old bimmers have a great group of owners!) I like this car a lot but it just isn't the best fit for my needs. I would prefer to sacrifice some of the greatness of an old BMW for a less hassle newer car.

Best Features

Perfect ride handling balance, that sweet v8, perfect brakes, classic looks, excellent build quality.

Worst Features

The new cars are sufficiently updated. Know what you're getting into, it's going to need maintenance and repair - $1-3k per year if you are handy with a wrench. Cost is fair, but takes too much of my time.
