1994 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


I've owned mine for 7 years, live in
Germany where it can stretch it legs
which it does VERY WELL. I have the 6-
spd manual trans, love using all those
gears and moving along at 130mph.
Averages 24.5mpg. It has 340,000km
(212,500 miles), not a problem with any
serious mechanical part of the car, and
I'm surprised to read about
engine/transmission changes from those
who have had these problems. Mine runs
as good as the day I bought it 7 years
ago, and it still does 157mph. I can't
imagine selling it for any reason,
workabee buds are forever trying to get
me to sell it to them. Not a chance....

Best Features

6-sp gearbox, 286hp engine, reliability, sporting nature, just a pleasure in all respects every time I get into it.

Worst Features

Get rid of some of the automation, like putting the wipers at intermittent wipe when stopped, the "all-or-nothing" defroster" (give me some levers that I can adjust to send the air where *I* want).
