The 528 (E39) is the current model, and the first year was 1997. The prior model, the 525 (E34), was made until 1995 (not even 1996). The same applies to the 540. The older model (E34), was made untl 1995. The new model 540(also E39) started on 1997.
In either case, my wife and I have a 1995 525i and it is a great car for the money. The 540i will have more power, but it will also be more expensive to maintain and to operate. The 525 is a better car for the money!
Just my opinion, of course.
