: Congrats on the decision - I also have a 540 i 6 on order in Biarritz Blue. It's also supposed to arrive in Oct/Nov. There are some changes over the 98's. Have you seen a detailed spec. yet ????

Haven't personally seen a detailed spec sheet, but several 5er board postings spelled things out pretty well. You should be able to find them in the archives, but let me know if you can't.

Also, here's a pretty good summary:

high performance rear axle,
new differential gear ratio
style 32 17" wheels,
m sport steering wheel.

The engine should remain exactly the same.

Xenon lights will be available and the in dash cd changer will not.

Good luck waiting without climbing the walls.
