    Arrow Circa 1995 540

    Folks,

    A friend is looking at a '95 540 V8 with manual six-speed. Any comments about desirability, or problem points to ponder?

    Thanks,
    DCB

    I've heard the V8's can be a bit temperamental at times. I've only tinkered with the suspension, etc. on them (never the engine). The suspension, etc. is rock solid just as the other BMW's.

    I've driven a few 540's and I've loved each time. Enough power and tons of room.

    I would drop by www.bimmerforums.com and read in the 5-Series section. I can assure you that you will get a quicker, more comprehensive answer.

    I know that doesn't help at all ...

    Definitely have him/her get a pre-purchase inspection done. I think that is an E34 model, and I know some of the V8s had issues with a Nikasil block or something along those lines?

    Other than that, I hear they're pretty solid.
