1999 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Wagon


Review

Smokin! If you have one you know what a great car it is!! Its easy to work on so I wont get rid of it. 120,000 miles and it is still as strong running as if it had 20,000. The torque is just a great feeling! It's a 'sleeper' on the streets. It's hard not to drive it hard like a sports car!!! I will fix any problem because you can't replace this car with an SUV. I have a Navigator for luxury rides and a Mini MC40 edition for go-cart fun rides but the wagon is a load hauling sports-car!!!


Best Features

Torque,torque,torque! Sound of V-8 at full throttle!


Worst Features

Get rid of the water cooled alternator! It's very expensive to replace! Better window regulators!
