Many if the items mentioned have been addressed over the last coule of years, but if you are looking for a more fault-free vehicle and less probably fewer visits to the service department, perhaps a Lexus GS would be a better choice. Not as much fun to drive, but although not fault-free, it will undoubtably be more "irritation free" than the BMW. Also lacks character.

: Being a recent visitor to this board and being interested in buying a '99 540iASport I am very concerned about the range and number of annoying problems people are having with the 5-series BMW (eg. doors rattle, windshield fluid leaks,erratic alarms, poor premium hifi, fluid steering, flashing radio illumination and many more).

: Is this car really worth $55,000 when you have to deal with the above ? Or are these problems just sporadic ?

: Is this really the ultimate car ?

: Thanks for the comments and safe driving !!

: SF Bay Area , Calif.
