I could be wrong, but I don't believe the 540i was available in a manual tranny until 1995. Only the 530i was available in a 5 sp.

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.
