Hey whats up? I'm new to the forum and actually I'm a new bmw owner. I just recently puchased a 98 540i auto and was wondering if anybody new what the 0-60 was for the car. Everywhere you can find the 0-60 for the manual but not the auto, any help is appreciated thanks
I've seen 6.0 sec being claimed in many reviews.
And I've tested mine with a friend beside me using a stopwatch, clocking at just over 6.0something sec. I think that the 6.4 sec quoted above might be a little too far off. Or maybe the sport package has different gear ratios? I'm not sure...but I know the 2001 model has like 8hp more, from 282 to 290.
The manual does it in just under 6 sec.
