: 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.

Will the 2001 5 Series with the sport package have the chrome strip on the color keyed moldings in the center of the bumpers, fenders and doors? I would think all 2001 5 Series cars with the sport package have color keyed moldings with no chrome and shadowline trim around the door windows. I would also think the non sport package models would have the chrome strip on the moldings and around the door windows for differentiation. But I don't know for sure. Could you please tell me Jon? Thanks.
