2000 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


Fantastic, fantastic car. Elegant and
luxurious, but crack the whip and you
can get places in a hurry. Doesn't
handle or feel like a 3,800 lb. car. I
had a '99 M3 for three years and loved
that rig, but this one can essentially
do everything that car could, while
offering more room and many more
standard features. Too bad BMW lost
focus and is now turning out hideous
designs and chasing after segments they
should never bother touching.

Best Features

Acceleration, braking and handling. Looks. DSP audio. One-touch windows down AND up -- why doesn't every manufacturer offer this?

Worst Features

Shorter shifter throws. One-button shut down of the AC/heater instead of having to cycle the fan speed down to "zero". Bigger trunk. In-dash CD changer. A box of cash in the trunk so I could trade up to an M5!
