Hello all, I've trolled this forum for several weeks because I was prospecting a 3 series for my wife and a M3 for myself. I've read pages upon pages on what to look for when purchasing. I ended up getting her a nice 1999 328i with 90,000 miles. And I settled for this nice 1998 540i/6 with 120,000. Much more practical for me to own this beauty rather than an M3. The very first test drive was impressive however I immediately noticed the CDV delaying my shifts. So the very first mod was deleting the CDV and Oh what a difference. The 540 feels way more powerful than the M3 so needless to say, I'm proud of my choice.
