THe sports pkg was definitely offered for the 540i, but not for the 528i(until '98). Shadowline was offered starting in '98 for both models. WHich is better depends on you.

Between 97-98, the sports pkg for the 540i came with the two piece 17x8 bolted wheels styled with seven spokes - absolutely gorgeous. When the '99 came out, owners got ripped off with the cheapened 20 spokes cast wheels. Shame on BMW.

: what were the options on '97 540i? I bought a used '97 540i from a friend, it has the "chrome" line, regular power leather seats, and no DSP. I heard that in '97 there was no Sports package option? also anyone know since when BMW start offering "shawdowline"???
: Which is better, the "chrome line" or the showdowline???
