True car nut here. I have owned and
driven just about every vehicle on the
face of the planet. It's true what
everyone says: the BMW 540i is the
best 4 door sedan $ can buy. My 99'
540i with the M packages and dealer

stopping power in an understated
elegant sedan. That about covers it.
Nothing in life is ABSOLUTELY perfect-

your last dime-you'll need some left
over to cover its care and feeding
costs. Cupholders made of paper
mache'. Brake rotors at $400 a pop.
Oil changes are $150 and so on.
