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


I bought my 540iA new before the body style changed and I'm glad i did. I tested the 6 speed manual first but the sales rep convinced me to buy the automatic with manu-matic shift. The car is fast yet unassuming. My 540iA came with the M5 sports package complete with M5 steering wheel, suspension/brakes and front/rear spoilers. I was shopping for an M3 as I was already driving a 1998 528E but the M3 was too small - am so glad I made the right decision. I would recommend the 540ia to any sports, luxury and German car enthusiast.

Best Features

Sports seats, steering wheel, handling and style.

Worst Features

Get real cup-holders and correct the LED dashboard readout which in my 540ia faded only after 1 year.
