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

Review

How can I say this... I finally understand the true meaning of, "The Ultimate Driving Machine!" I brought a CPO 2003 540i with the sport package in 2006. This is my personal sports car, family car, golfing car (room for foursome and 4 sets of golf clubs - they even give you a picture of how to best store the clubs in the trunk). I have so much fun driving this car. Sometimes I even take the longer but winding road home just to feel the acceleration and handling of the 540. Even with the automatic, I can either put the transmission in "S - Sports" mode or just shift it manually. It's FUN either way. My 9 year old son is already counting the days until his 17th birthday.

Favorite Features

The V8 engine, suspension, wheel, aggressive looks.

Suggested Improvements

A real cup holder would be nice. I had to purchase a aftermarket TEC holder. If you think about it, the Germans don't drink and drive. I would like some more lumbar support in the sports seats as well.
