2001 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

Review

This is my dream car. Having owned a couple of 3 series over the years I am partial to BMW. So take my advice for what it is worth. The motor is great. Mileage is not great. Comfort high. Transmission smooth. 18" wheels look great and the ride is still good. The only complaint from me is the steering does not feel quite as crisp as the 530I. I think this is due to the weight of the V8 so BMW had to use a different setup. And about those flimsy cupholders. Who in their right mind would eat and drink in a $60,000 car while driving around...

Favorite Features

Everything. All around a great car!

Suggested Improvements

Steering is somewhat numb. I do like the steering on the 530I better.
