Oh, so many choices!!! And as always, Marco has excellent comments. I do note that the '99 540Ia dealer spec sheet for the Sport package indicates that in addition to the lowered suspension, bigger (and mismatched, i.e., rears are bigger) wheels and tires, there is a different final drive ratio, a different torque converter, and Steptronic is the standard auto trans. Hmmm...Still, it's a hefty $2,800 more, and they don't indicate how much faster it is than the regular auto.
