1997 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


Love this car...sold my 911 for something bigger but just as fun to drive. Now in 12/07 with over 120,000 miles (6 years and 90,000 miles later) it still looks and drives great. Stevens Creek, a San Jose dealership takes great care of me and my 540, although parts and labor can get pretty pricey, this dealership does help me out quite often, even out of warrranty. I have kept it garaged and well maintained, has second set of after market wheels and tires, just so I can stand out even more :)

Best Features

Just plain fun to drive, short trips as much as the long hauls. Those heated seats and heated steering wheel are to die for. Who would have thought that those items would come in so handly on those cold mornings.

Worst Features

Those cheap cup holders... apparently we're not supposed to drink and drive. Better stereo and needs an in dash cd player. I bet I can get better gas mileage if I kept my foot out of it!
