"I have had my 98 540i Sport for several years. My car has the 6 speed manual transmission and Dinan Stage 1 package. It only has 129,333 miles, so really low for a 18 year old luxury sedan. In a nut shell, it has been one of the best cars I have ever owned. I have owned over 40 cars in the last 16 years so keeping one for 2+ years is unusual for me. You are getting a lot of car for your money. My biggest complaint is its low resale value. My car was around $55,000 new and it books $4400! really!!!! If you find a nice one that has been taken care, jump on it. Dollar for dollar you can't beat it. Reliable, Fast, Fun, Luxurious, ect. I was considering selling it to buy another Jeep Wrangler but I have a hard time selling it for pennies on the dollar when I put $4500 into a clutch, flywheel, smoked head lights, Z-rated tires and other preventative maintenance in the last year. It books less than my last years maintenance and I don't agree. This car should be valued closer to double what KBB says in my opinion. A lot of car for the money...."
"I've driven and owned this car from 50,000 miles. The only problem I've ever had is an overheating problem a couple times. This is a stylish, incredible handling automobile that seams to never go out of style. I've LOVED this car!!! I've owned Mrecedes, Porsche's ( 5) Buick, Olds, chevy, ...this car is the mac DADDY!!! Bomb Diggity!"
"M3 wheels installed, minor cosmetics on exterior, came with factory Sport Package, excellent interior condition. Looks and drives like a BMW, i.e. typical great combination of handling/steering/brakes/transmission/engine. I'd buy it myself but already have nice car."
