3470_Mike.'s Response to Mark Allison.'s Review

Written on: 13/08/2001

I have recently driven the BMW 540. Both the 6 speed and the automatic. The 6 speed is a miserable car to drive in the city and spoils an otherwise wonderfully engineered car. On the otherhand the BMW 540 automatic is without question the finest luxury sedan in its class and price range in the world. Smooth as silk, terrific handling, very fast, stops on a dime and easy to drive. Definitely a cut above Cadillac STS, Lincoln LS, Jaguar and other would be competitors. I currently own a Cadillac STS that cannot come close to the BMW 540ia in fit and finish, quiteness, or handling. Needless to say I will be purchasing a new 540ia soon!
