2003 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6M)

Review

This is my 3rd BMW. I had two 328's - a 97 and a 2001. I wanted a little more room this time round. I intended to buy a 530, but this one was sitting on the lot - a program car, $10K off MSRP... I just couldn't resist the opportunity. The car had 6000 miles on it when I took delivery. I thought it had been broken in. Now, at 13000, things are really coming together. This car is balanced, strong, wonderful to drive. The only seats that I am aware of being more comfortable are the old volvo seats. But, still... No volvo drives like this. It settles in right at about 78 and is smooth smooth all the way past 120.

Best Features

The balance of this car is awesome. Comfort seats are great. Transmission/clutch is great. Engine sounds great.

Worst Features

Better fuel economy. That silly armrest must go. Those cupholders? Not that I need them, but... they're useless.
