My 94 540i has 73K miles adn is still running. A month ago, I had an independent run a leakdown test on it and he determined that I had 3 out-of-spec cylinders. I took it to a dealer who claims to have performed the test but couldn't show me any numbers. The car has a slight miss when at operating temperature, with no load (NO AC, BLOWER FANS, LIGHTS)

I've had the car for over a year now and have decided to get rid of it before March 2000 when the 100K warranty runs out. I don't feel like spending the 9K or more for a new engine; and I'm tired of dealers in denial!
