1999 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


You will love this car! I have the 6sp. Fun to drive, great to look at. You'll receive a ton of compliments. Oil changes are only required every 12k. My radiator has gone twice. It's plastic, but was under warranty. I replaced the cupholders with Ultimate Cupholders that mount near the floor in the front and replaced the rears with a CD holder. You will love this car. Just do yourself the favor and DIY maintenance/repairs or find a reliable private non-dealer BMW shop.

Best Features

Handling, acceleration, appearance, horsepower, abundance of available modifications, interior

Worst Features

Cup holders. More accessible engine compartment. Arm rest is a joke - replace it. Ventilation system is terrible.
