In Reply to: Specific MY 2001 540i/6 changes posted by Jon Shafer on July 09, 2000 at 15:00:45:

Out of curiosity, will the V8 models (540i/iA in North America) continue to have the chrome vertical slats in the double-kidney grilles or will ALL 5er have this trim?

: 1) A chrome strip on the body side strips will differentiate the 540i from the 6-cylinder models.
: 2) The Cold Weather Package can now be added to the 540i 6-speed. However, the heated steering wheel option continues to be unavailable on this model due to it's standard sport steering wheel.
: 3) For added value the universal garage transmitter is now standard on all 540 models with no price increase.
: These changes are in addition to the other changes that apply to all 5 Series models for MY 2001.
