2003 BMW 5 Series Wagon 540i 4dr Sport Wagon (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

While it is true the sport suspension gives you
precise feedback, I find the handling and
roadfeel to be one of the best characteristics
of the car. For those who are looking for a true
perfomance car with the practicality of a
wagon look no further. Put four snow tires on
the car and winter is no issue. For those
seeking to drive your living room this is not
the car for you. The BMW 540ia wagon sets the
standard for fit and finish among it's rivals,
and passes them in so other many
characteristics and qualities. This is a car I can
drive for 8 hours continually arriving without
an ache.


Best Features

Handling Interior fit and finish interior ergonomics quite cabin at any speed utility


Worst Features

Perhaps for the public at large better cup holders. But for me the importance of maintaining %100 concentration while driving the cup holders are irrelavent. Remember two hands on the whell at all times!

2003 BMW 5 Series Wagon 540i 4dr Sport Wagon (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The BMW 540i is fun to drive but lacks
interior comfort. Why can't they build
a car with the comfort of a Lexus or
Mercedes on the interior with the good
looks of a BMW on the outside. I have
owned three Mercedes and ejoyed their
interiors and comfort but always
thought the drive was not spunky or
exciting. The 540i delivers a
thrilling ride and wonderful handling,
but I miss the comfort. Am I too old
for this car?


Best Features

Handling is the best!


Worst Features

Make more places to hold things in the interior. Make mor back room leg space.

Review

Having traded in my Porsche, I found
the 540i wagon with the sport package
to be the perfect vehicle for my
current needs. It holds my family, as
much sailing gear as I reasonably need,
cruises comfortably on the highway,
handles secondary roads well enough
(although the ride is too harsh with
the 45 series tires), and, despite
BMW's disavowal, hauls a trailer with
ease.


Best Features

Power, handling and comfort.


Worst Features

The sport suspension should be more compliant.
