I am selling my 1992 325i and going to upgrade to a 99 up 5 series...Been looking at the 528's and the 540's but I don't know alot about them....I am still into performance but want something with a little more luxury, so which 5 series would better suit me? Is there alot of aftermarket support for all of them? Do either come in 5 speed? Thanks for any help!

The 540 comes in a 5 speed to answer your question!!

Also there are quite alot of aftermarket performance upgrades you can do for them!!

So I think that you will have fun if you get either a 528 or a 540!!
