In Reply to: 91 M5 or 95 540i.....your choice and why! posted by Thomas on October 16, 2001 at 19:24:21:

Don't bother with the 95 540i. They are great cars don't get me wrong. I have a 95 540i/6, but I always wonder about my Nikasil engine. M5s still hold their values but 94-95 540's are the most depreciated BMW's ever. Why BMW ever imported an engine to America that reacts adversely to sulfur but still won't recall it is beyond me in my opinion. I've heard the 3.6 and 3.8 M5 engines are pretty damn bullet proof just like the 3.5 in the 535s. You can get a good 95 540i with an Alusil engine for about $14,000. If I had my choice all over again I would of gotten a 96 M3 or 91-92 M5.

Goodluck with your decision. Check out www.530i.org for the huge engine problem for the 94 -95 530,540i.
