right now the 540i and 528i are my options. I have however heard rumours of a 530i due out for 2001. I am wondering if this is in any way an accurate rumour. The 528 is a little underpowered for me and the 540 is quite a jump in price. A 530i souns nice as I would guess it would produce over 200hp and even more torque. I await your replies!!
