Hey Gausher, welcome to bmw-forums. I bought a 97 540i in 01 with 115K mi, now its up to 150k...I've had only minor problems until recently, just a few engine quirks. I would highly reccomend the 97 540ia, it is a reliable and overall fun car to drive. 7K is a pretty fair price, but still have it inspected before you buy it if you can. Best of luck!

Regards,
