my business partner has a 2001 540i sport (one step below the M5) it is the baddest car i have ever driven. his dad has the 540i automatic and puts 25k miles per year on it trouble free. the 540i sport has a manual 6 speed tranny. he drove from charlotte to boulder in 19 hrs. don't know a thing about any other BMW but if i had 42 grand i would make him an offer.
