My Favorite Car Ever - Fell In Love
By Tex-Bear on
1995 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan
Bought black with black interior BMW 540 used - 9 years old (nickname Vader). All my previous cars were just tools for traveling. Vader's comfort, solid construction, and performance made me 'fall in love'- feel safe and pampered. Superior quality leather seats and interior. Exterior is classic and elegant. Gets 19 mpg; engine has hp & torque to merge into highway traffic, and maneuver out of danger with ease. Headlights are more like laser beams. No one keeps brights in my eyes if I flash the hi-beams at them! Nikosil engine was replaced by a previous owner. Vader has been reliable daily driver, with only routine maintenance needed, and I travel 100 miles/day. This is one great car.
Performance, reliability, style, and comfort. On-board computer links with radio; can see which CD song or radio station is playing w/o taking eyes off the road. Also displays outside temp; trip miles; ave mpg; ave speed; and much more data.
