BMW 540i 6 Speed - The best sports sedan
By Peter J on

Vehicle

2002 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 5A)

Review

The BMW 5 series has always been excellent and the current model introduced in 1997 is no exception. This is a quiet sophisticated car that has amazing performance. The 6 Speed manual transmission can be a little baulky when cold but once she is warmed, this car is phenomenal. As is the case with most BMW's (I have owned 6) speed is achieved with little fuss and the turbine like drive in the back never gives up, right up to maximum speed you can get away with. The car is, without doubt, one of the finest cars on the road. The interior is a little dated now, but this car is still a winner with build quality to match.

Best Features

Superb build quality, handling and engines (especially the 3.0 litre and 4.4 litres).

Worst Features

Improved trunk space, updated interior to reflect the sporting character and slightly more leg room in the rear.
