What a Great Car
By j mcburney on


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


I came awfully close to getting a MB
CLK 430 until my boss, a confirmed
BMW fanatic convinced me to not buy
anything without trying a 540i. Boy,
do I owe him! Mine is a sport
package with MSport wheels and
steering wheel and trim - kind of an
M5 wannabe. It is simply the best
car in it's class by a long shot, and
easily one of the finest in the world. I
wish that the 6 speed had not been
an extra cost option, because that
combined with it's negative impact
on resale got me into the Steptronic,
but it is the best auto I've ever driven.
Simply a fabulous car that obliterates
standards of luxury, performance
and engineering excellence. Bravo!

Best Features

The fat torque band, the premimum sound system, the exhaust burble.

Worst Features

Make the 6 speed manual less of an upcharge
