2002 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 5A)
Great car. This is the third BMW I have
had the privelege to own. The first two
were both 328i's. I loved the way they
drove, but they were too small. I ended
up in this car as I got a good deal on
it, and it's even better than the
328's. It's a great size (the back
seats in the 3's are just too small)
without being too big. I wish it did
not feel quite so heavy - but it's a
price I'm willing to pay.
6 spd is great. Wish the highest gear
were a bit higher for better high speed
cruising - but, then, I suppose that
clocking in somewhere over 2300 rpm at
80 mph isn't THAT bad.
The cupholders are plain tragic. Why
are they even there? How about an OFF
button for the auto climate control?
