called dealer, he said it was emissions related. took
the car in and was diagnosed cat conv 5-8 fault present.
this is a 4/97 production '97 540i sport 6,the car now has over 27000 miles, the first cat was replaced
when i had the car dinan 'chipped' in feb 98. i'll report on performance difference later. the cat WAS making a 'clinking' noise, but i had been told twice before that
it was OK.

BTW Center BMW in sherman oaks, ca has a titanum M5 with
a sticker price of $72k in the show room. i saw a customer there with a titanium M5 when i dropped my car off, and an anthracite (nice color) M5 when i picked my car up, an M5 rich day!
