In Reply to: Looking at an 94' 540i 5 spd any takes on this? posted by Pat P on October 16, 2001 at 07:13:06:
I love my 530i 5sp and I'm sure the 540i manual is even more fun, although I have not driven a 540i. The fuel economy is not great but if that is not a huge concern then go for it. Also, be sure of what type of engine block the car has prior to purchasing (Nikasil or Alusil). See www.530i.org for more details on the block problems with the V-8s.
