I have a 528 and a 540....
the 528 has a sportier feel and is a better daily driver. period.
when i have the need for power, i go out in the 540, though. (and its still not enough... lol)


the 540 has 130,000 miles, 1997 automatic.

(btw - the white car in the first pic in front of my 540 is the 528)

Looks real good, Sporky!! Not only the rims, but the shadowline trim made a huge difference! I likey! Gotta get those windows tinted though, like your old car was. ;-)

To Rogcontact I say again: just go test drive a bunch of both 528's and 540's and try out a 530 or two. The more you test drive, the more you will know. Don't wonder about it - find out before you buy via test drives! I think it'll become obvious to you, once you driven a few of each, which is best for you.

Awsom Sp0rky. You're like the ultimate 5 enthusiast. So you have 2 e34s and 2 e39s? Is the black e34 shragon's old car?
