  • Great Car Expensive To Maintain

    Love my 99, 540i, however; it's been tough love- When she runs she runs great, excellent acceleration, comfort, low noise, and a solid safe feel. Won't lie to you the car maintenance isn't cheap- Have had some blow ups with the car regarding water pump- Highly recommend you check the radiator after 100k on this vehicle- Make sure you replace the water pump if not the whole entire cooling system. Like anything if you keep up with the maintenance the car won't let you down- Just learn to change your oil if you don't have deep pockets, it's very simple and if you're handy buy the 5-series manual for simple repairs- The dealer will take advantage of you, but who doesn't know that already- Enjoy :-)
  • Great Road Machine

    I have owned car for 7 yrs and put 60,000 on this car. This is a high performance sedan make no bones about it. It is very fast but so smooth you don't realize how fast you are going. Definitely an autobahn machine. Cruising at 80 is effortless. Quality is excellent, BMW builds a great car. If you are into cornering, and stopping you can't beat a BMW. Big excellent brakes on all 4 wheels. Just compare the rear rotor size to most Japanese imports, you can tell the BMWs are much larger just by eyeballing. Maintenance: You will read cooling system a weak spot. I agree, Radiator blew when it was 6 yrs old. Water pump went at 118000 and I replaced it. Don't know if it was a second pump or not. Don't think so. The two cooling tubes that run from front to back of engine can be a problem. Car definitely needs to be maintained. Valve cover gaskets and valley pan gasket will definitely need replacing around 100,000 to 110,000 miles. Underhood temps are very high. Not a snow car but 4 snow tires with the traction control and you will be okay. This car not for everyone and I would only sell to another BMW person. They know what they are getting. Great performance with some maintainability issues. Gas mileage: 24-26 on highway and 17-18 in town. Not bad for a 2 ton sedan with 282 HP!! 5 speed automatic transmission is nice too. At 80 mph only turning about 2200RPM. Take care of it and it will take care of you!
