I have always loved the BMW 540I Sport for years. I have always leased cars and my last 2 were an 2006 AUDI S4 and a 2010 Audi A6 Sport. And in January of 2011 I found a beautiful 540 and fell in love with.So I purchasaed it and it is a 1999 BMW 540IA Sport M Pkg with only 59k miles on it. I LOVE this car the 4.4 V8 has 282 hp and 325 Lb F Torque is AMAZING. It can throw you back in your seat and next thing you know your doing 100. It is so smooth and tight and quiet. It drives and performed in my opinion better than any car I have ever owned by far. I test drove both the 6 speed manual and the Steptronic Auto versions. And I loved the manual but the Automatic with steptronic trans with the option to drive in sport mode regular mode or I can slap shift like a manual with no clutch was the way to go.Its so smooth and nice and now I know why CAR and DRIVER named it CAR OF THE YEAR. I have had no problems at all except the dash lights. But if you are looking or even thinking about a 1999-2003 BMW 540I drive one you will love it.
