I just think the older e39s are much better. They handle better and look better.
Today I drove a 1999 540i and a 2001 525i sport. I would rather have the 2001 525i sport over that 99 540i. I just loved the stiffer suspension and a sportier ride. I dunno, that's just me.
Did you drive it?
As with any stock BMW, the suspension should be changed out ASAP for a custom coilover kit. Nuff said.
