1997 BMW 5 Series 540I 4.4L V8 from North America
The Ultimate Driving Machine
Radiator neck broke at 76K this is a common issue on this model. Some rough idling and sporadic stalling, but this was cured by having the injectors cleaned and serviced by my local luxury service specialist.
This is a great car! I had never driven a 540I before getting mine. The power is awesome, the handling is great, and the braking is sufficient. The power, multi-adjustable seats are the best I have ever experienced. Outside of the cost to service the car, it is truly one of BMW's ultimate driving machines.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
