One of the best cars I ever had!
By kriss77 on


1997 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


This is a superb car, and it is
definitely the best in its class. This
is a true sports sedan, that not only
is very comfortable (16 way adjustable
seats), but performance oriented.
Acceleration times are amazing for
this type of cars. 6.2 seconds from 0
to 60 on an automatic, and 5.8 seconds
on a manual transmission speaks for
itself. The V8 produces a massive
torque and every time you step on the
accelerator, you get "pulled" into the
bucket of the seat. If you have never
owned a 540i, you are missing a lot.
If you plan on buying this car, make
sure you get an extended warranty.
