I have had mine since 2008
February 25, 2018
I brought this car in 2008 as a CPO vehicle. I have the sports and cold weather packages. Needless to say, I know a lot about this car. Most of what you are reading about the car is true, but I don't have a lot of the issues some people are having. My car is a 6 speed manual, so I don't have any transmission problems. I have a 125000 on the car, and still have the same clutch. Oil leaks. Yep. Sorry to say unavoidable. The repairs can get rather costly, but find a good mechanic you will be able to manage it. Bottom line. I can not find another car that performs anywhere close to my 545. Even the newer BMW's are the same or not as good in some cases, so why spend money for something I already have. I have thought about selling or trading it, but I simply can't do it. So if you are thinking buying this car, make sure oil leaks have been addressed. If you find one in good condition, you will not be disappointed with the performance. Isn't that the reason we drive BMW's anyway?
