: I have a 95 540iA which is the first automatic car I have ever owned and I love it. I looked for a 6-speed but I couldn't fine a clean one for a good price with a new Alusil short block. The 5-speed automatic is oustanding. I enjoy the convienence of the automatic in city traffic and while on the phone. The sport mode is wonderful on the curvy back roads(S3 mode)and autocrosses (S2). The manual mode can be used like as a primitive steptronic for ultimate gear control (drivers' schools). Test drive the car in S3, it really is nice.
