2001 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6M)


This car is the ultimate driving machine. From the engine, transmission, overall gearing, handling, comfort, and sound system (DSP audio & engine) this machine rocks. Its also the best looking car on the road with very reasonable economy for the performance experienced. Averaged 26.4 mpg on latest 1500 mile vacation. This car satisfies all my wants, needs, and wishes. Forget complaining about useless cupholders, pickup a set of door pocket mounted holders at BMW accessory counter. Only unlucky reliability issues could bring complaints about this otherwise perfect overall automobile. You just can't beat a V8 manual transmission combo for all out driving excitement. Just awesome!!

Best Features

Engine, transmission, sound, handling, comfort, climate control, just plain good looks, and can you say acceleration.

Worst Features

Stereo controls reliability issues.
