1998 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


My mates tell me this is an old man's
car, until I take them around the
block and they realise its a wolf in
sheep's clothes.

It's an absolutely fabulous car,
smooth and exciting to drive. Feels
sturdy and safe at all speeds, and
great breaking ability. Open road
driving is magic in a 540i.

If you like smooth grunt with refined
elegance, this machine qualifies.

Best Features

Acceleration and breaking power. Comfy inside on long trips.

Worst Features

Stereo is a bit average, (as they seem to be right through the beamer ranges.) Drinks holders are average. I'm a petrol head. Give it another 20% under the hood and it will be even better.
