: : first of all LOL...i think you mean recent purchase...i was wondering if it was a typo or if you really changed you mind about the 540

: : :I recently purchased a 1995 540i with the Motorsport package. Wow, what a fantastic car!
: : : Can anyone tell me how many of these M packages
: : : made available in the US?

: : let me just check that you have the "throwing star" rims that was on the 91-93 M5 right??? (not that somebody couldn'thave put them on afterward though)...i believe they made 200 (or was it 600) 1995 540i Sport edition as a last hurrah for the E34 (i am sure Viken B will correct me if i am wrong)

: : Bruce

: Bruce,

: If I remember well, it was more like 200, certainly not 600. They were late '95 models and looked exactly like the last US 1993 M5. They were offered with either a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic.

Here are some Car & Driver specs for a real 540i Sport.
-DOHC 282 bhp 3982 cc 32 Valve V-8
-Suspension has EDC(electronic damper control)
-17" 235/45-17 Pilot's with M System II wheels
same as on a 93 M5 & up.
-Larger front brake rotors
-M-Tech body kit from an M5
-0-60 mph 5.8 secs, 91 M5 did it in 5.6 secs.
-Special M-sport racing mirrors
-The package was $8360 over a standard 6 spd 540i.
-A few M badges here and there.
