1998 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


Now have 72,000 miles on car. Have replaced the radiator, water pump (left me stranded) valve cover gaskets, power steering hoses. Down to one functioning cup holder. Replaced one catalytic converter for a thousand bucks and the other one sounds like it's rattling (I hope it's the other one!). Blowing fuses on remote locking system and had to unplug the gas filler door actuator to stop it. Headlight adjusters broke. Still love the car though. Fun car but not Lexus reliability by any means.

Best Features

Peformance. Luxury interior and features.

Worst Features

Better exhaust and cooling system. Cup holder design of course. Also headlight adjusters are incredible cheap plastic which break easily.
