There is/was a known issue w/the V8 engines in the 530i/540i/740i/840i related to sulfur in US fuels. See www.530i.org for details in the M60 Engine Test FAQ.
Aside from that there isn't any "lemon" factor that I've noticed.

: I have never read so much about problems concerning one engine + other problems. From all the letters and stories on this page there can be no other conclusion. Are all newer Bimmers like this ? It seems that the engines are replaced regulary. I was concidering an upgrade but I think I will stick to my 535i-92. I have sofar had no problems whatsoever. It has 65k miles on the meter. Or ?
