1999 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan

Review

First off, I will say this car has a nice exterior. The parts are of good quality but the maintenance on this car is a joke. I've owned several high end cars over the years to includes a Mercedes, a Jaguar, two Volvo's, and a Lexus. The BMW has been the worst for maintenance! This car needs more get up and go too for the price. Not impressed at all!!! The best cars I've owned have been the Volvo's. My wife has a 1999 Volvo S80 T6. Wow, that car is a rocket! Virtually trouble free and super low cost on maintenance.... not to mention, the most comfortable seats of any car we've owned. A much better choice than this BMW. I'm going back to Volvo!

Worst Features

The cupholders are horrible - spill drinks all the time and now have so many stains on the carpets, no to mention on my clothes! Needs much more power. BMW should use a twin- turbo like Volvo on the S80 T6. The Volvo's are much better cars as I now know.
