Performs at a very high level, barely lower than a new one, and its a quarter of the price. Stylish, sporty, and fast. It's a pleasure to drive and gets the adrenaline flowing. A 6 speed is a must to maximize performance and is much more enjoyable. This is the Ultimate Driving Machine.

The BMW 540i is one of the finest vehicles in the used car market. I just makes sense. You get to drive in a expensive luxury car for a fraction of the price. There are few cars that can outrun this car and maybe not any that can outhandle it. Just put your foot down and go. The manual transmission is the most fun and it is very easy to drive. This car will be mine for a very long time to come. The only car I would even consider other than this one is the M5. If you get a 540i you will enjoy it. Definitly the ultimate driving machine.

The 540i is the perfect sized car for either city or highway driving. The 4.4L V-8 is VERY responsive yet still gets pretty good MPG for such a fast car. Very comfortable both front and back seats. Al...
The 540i is the perfect sized car for either city or highway driving. The 4.4L V-8 is VERY responsive yet still gets pretty good MPG for such a fast car. Very comfortable both front and back seats. All in all, probably one of the best cars out there to own if you just love to DRIVE!

540i

by from Chicago, IL on July 19, 2006

The bmw is perfectly fine during the summer but during the winter the traction control makes it difficult to drive.
