2000 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan

Review

Confidence inspiring. That really sums it up. This car has legendary handling, more than adequate power and killer brakes. This is my first BMW and it will not be my last. I was a little concerned about the maintenace stories, but after having the car a while and doing some research on maintaining this car and some of the cures to common issues, I'm not at all worried. Love the styling in and out. The style #66 wheels are my favorite as well.

Favorite Features

Hands down, the six speed transmission is the option to have - and you will pay a premium for it even in the used market. Couple the MT with the sport package and all you will want to do is drive this car! DSP stereo/CD system rocks too!

Suggested Improvements

Disappointed in the AM radio poor reception and whine. There is a TSB on the subject, but it looks like it is a non-warranty replacement of the DSP amp ($1,300) ouch!
