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

Review

My next automobile will be the M5 vs. S500, until then, this machine is more than adequate. I'd love a roadster type, but they're too impractical for a family-man. I chose this car for it's stellar passive safety ratings (checkout hywsafety. org) and its ability to handle precisely to actively avoid a collision. My wife had not been an auto-phile, but this car has made her passionate about driving.

Best Features

Power, power, power. Silky smooth shifts, with fairly good intuition to where I'd shift if manual. It looks beautiful.

Worst Features

Cupholders are embarrassingly inadequate for an automobile of this stature. My butt is a bit too wide for the sport seats (6'1" 220lb). Carseat wont LATCH into center seat in back - have to use door seat for this.
