2000 540i 6-spd.

2000 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan
Review
Fantastic, fantastic car. Elegant and luxurious, but crack the whip and you can get places in a hurry. Doesn't handle or feel like a 3,800 lb. car. I had a '99 M3 for three years and loved that rig, but this one can essentially do everything that car could, while offering more room and many more standard features. Too bad BMW lost focus and is now turning out hideous designs and chasing after segments they should never bother touching.
Favorite Features
Acceleration, braking and handling. Looks. DSP audio. One-touch windows down AND up -- why doesn't every manufacturer offer this?
Suggested Improvements
Shorter shifter throws. One-button shut down of the AC/heater instead of having to cycle the fan speed down to "zero". Bigger trunk. In-dash CD changer. A box of cash in the trunk so I could trade up to an M5!
