1997 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


I am coming up on 7 years of ownership and
90K on the clock. Yes I just did the radiator
but got the cat and a couple of small items
under the extended warranty. I have owned
and driven various Bimmers and this one is
the berries. Do not, I repeat, do not drive
this car for any length of time if you cannot
buy--it will ruin you for all other cars, even
some other Bimmers.

Best Features

Heated steering wheel and seats--also upgraded stereo.

Worst Features

Try to figure out a way to screen future owners from driving around with their fog lights on--gives us a bad rap
