doesn't have it, the 540i has 282hp, but easily out accelerates the 300hp A6 4.2. Why you ask. Simple torque. 324lb-ft to be exact. Go take a seat rice boy.

Such is life. You pay 30k for a 260hp 3000 lbs 150 mph car and some dying (you said it) 540, about the same hp and many more extra lbs, outruns you on the highway. Damn, that's tough. No problem, for the new 300 hp 2003 Nissan Maxima will come along and spank the BMW. And then will come the 400hp 2005 Honda Civic to spank the Nissan.

PS That was not a long post.

Just to let you know that my old, almost dying 540 (according to some board members) beat the hell out of an Ferrari 328 GTS last night.

The old guy (mid to late 50s) tryied everything but the mighty 540 came on top. It was a lot of fun to watch his face of frustration. We ran up until I hit the limiter (129 mph) and wasn't unable to catch me up to that point. we let it loose at around 55 mph.

I betcha that today in the morning he went to Garage Europa to fight the salesman who told him that no one could come close to his Ferrari.

95 540ia lowered, wheeled (definately soon to be sharked)
