BMW 540i 6 Speed - The best sports sedan
By Peter J on


2002 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


The BMW 5 series has always been
excellent and the current model
introduced in 1997 is no exception.
This is a quiet sophisticated car that
has amazing performance. The 6 Speed
manual transmission can be a little
baulky when cold but once she is
warmed, this car is phenomenal. As is
the case with most BMW's (I have owned
6) speed is achieved with little fuss
and the turbine like drive in the back
never gives up, right up to maximum
speed you can get away with. The car
is, without doubt, one of the finest
cars on the road. The interior is a
little dated now, but this car is
still a winner with build quality to

Best Features

Superb build quality, handling and engines (especially the 3.0 litre and 4.4 litres).

Worst Features

Improved trunk space, updated interior to reflect the sporting character and slightly more leg room in the rear.
