Hi, I am a newbee. I would like to buy a 2002-2003 530 or 540i with manual tranny. Given that I have not read every thread so far - which engine has less problems?
I am coming off 2002 Nissan Maxima 6 speed, so I now I will not be disappointed with 540i accelleration and 530 would be almost on par. My concern about long term issues with electic and other components.
What are some of pros and cons for each one? Money wise I can either get a 02 540 or 03 530 for the same ammount. It will proabably be a CPO and I like to work on the cars myself.
