2001 BMW 5 Series Wagon 540i 4dr Sport Wagon (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I bought this car for my wife as a car to drive around kids in - I think I want it for myself! This car has got all the power you will need, excellent handling and it's smooth as silk. The 540, like the other posters say, is well worth it over the 528. There are too many great things about this car to list... simply love it, love it, love it.


Best Features

Build quality, tight lines and power. The fold down seats are a definite plus.


Worst Features

none... I didn't buy it for the cupholders.

2001 BMW 5 Series Wagon 540i 4dr Sport Wagon (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Wow. That's all I keep saying
everyday I drive this car. After years
of lumbering around in SUV's of all
sizes I started looking at BMW wagons
on the strong advice of two good
friends. Now I am forever indebted to
them! This car is an absolute dream to
drive and I really don't feel that I
have lost much (if any) cargo space.
The power delivery is powerfully smooth
and seemingly never ending. The car is
very quite and handles like its on
rails! You will want to drive
everywhere! If you have the
opportunity to pick up the 540i rather
than the 528i or 525i, do it! This car
has put the fun back into driving for
me!


Best Features

Attention to detail (the German's know how to build a driver's car!), gorgeous lines, the power and handling!


Worst Features

More room for back seat passengers, a better console arm rest without the useless cut out, storage under the console armrest, integrated holder for sunglasses, CD changer with ESP to eliminate skips, better cup holders, and loose the sunshade brackets on the bottom cushions of the back

Review

Not only the best wagon on the market,
but the best car. The wagon actually
gives you 50/50 weight distribution.
Handles better than the sedan. The
extra torque of the 540 is worth the
investment. I have used it to haul and
road trips, etc.
Did a euro delivery too, so got to drive
it on home turf. Seeing euro delivery
is actually cheaper, one would be crazy
not to buy that way. New wagons won't
be available (E60) til 2005-06.


Best Features

Engine, Nav, split fold down rear seats.


Worst Features

A manual, diesel engine, better mileage. Don't need cup holder, just need to drive.
