the 2001 540i s are a bit out of the range as far as price goes. Since my 530 is financed I am hoping that I can get the 540 without having to pay for it after my trade-in (not sure how it will work out). Why do you say 2001 540is are better than the 1999? Looking at the specs they have the same engine.
and salespeople are sometimes clueless b/c they forgot to mention whether its an auto or manual trans . they said they had the sport wheels (i will check for the ///M logos) so I am sure its not 16". I will def. check it out tomorrow.
edit: what I am interested is whether keeping the 01 530 is better than the 99 540. And also if there are differences between 01 540 and 99 540..
