: John: I liked the 850's (after all I was a repeat offender). However, the 540 is a far better car -- better balanced, lighter on its feet, and better acceleration -- the 850 is beautiful to look at but too heavy. Also the 540 can actually carry an adult in the rear seat. The 850 rear seat was usable only for short trips, small people, or dogs. I have no regrets about "trading down". I am fortunate enough to be able to afford any BMW I want, and the 540 is my choice (though for my next, I am being seduced by M5; if I didn;t drive in traffic, I'd already have one).
