2003 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6M)


Review

Great car, fast, fun to drive, silent
and strong engine. No complaints at
all, but I hate the rear-end styling of
the new (2004) design. And it waits to
be seen whether the I-drive joystick
will be more user friendly than in the
7 series.


Best Features

I like everything about this car.


Worst Features

Only complaint - the flimsy cupholders!

Review

This is my 3rd BMW. I had two 328's - a
97 and a 2001. I wanted a little more
room this time round. I intended to buy
a 530, but this one was sitting on the
lot - a program car, $10K off MSRP... I
just couldn't resist the opportunity.
The car had 6000 miles on it when I
took delivery. I thought it had been
broken in. Now, at 13000, things are
really coming together. This car is
balanced, strong, wonderful to drive.
The only seats that I am aware of being
more comfortable are the old volvo
seats. But, still... No volvo drives
like this. It settles in right at about
78 and is smooth smooth all the way
past 120.


Best Features

The balance of this car is awesome. Comfort seats are great. Transmission/clutch is great. Engine sounds great.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy. That silly armrest must go. Those cupholders? Not that I need them, but... they're useless.
