2000 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


I have had the car for over 56,000 miles and 106,000 miles overall. Recent engine oil analysis showed almost no wear. Gas mileage is averaging 24 MPG in mixed driving. Car has exceptional acceleration at any speed and even better braking. As much under control at 120 as at 40. Interior comfort could be better but control layout is totally logical. Some wear on seat plastic trim. Maintenance is easy but not cheap. Expensive but worth it.

Best Features

Acceleration. Braking. Handling. Fuel economy. Great sound system. Logical layout of controls.

Worst Features

Cost of maintenance. Wear of minor time. Seats could be more comfortable.
