I also have a 1998 528i 5 Speed. My mom has a 1998
540 i automatic. Although I think my mother's car
is great, I prefer my car. But that is mainly because my car is a stick. True, my car does feel
lighter and more responsive but I have never
driven a 540i Sport.
I do wish that my car had more power. At one point, I was playing with the idea of trading it in for an M Coupe. But I probably will not because
I don't want to take a deprciation hit. If you can afford it, get the 540i Sport. The V8 is awesome.
I also wish that the 528i had a more aggressive
exhaust sound. I also thought about adding a REMUS or AC Schnitzer but it is too expensive and I do not want to void the warranty.
Best of luck,
