Hey Y'all

Hello, I am checking in from Georgia!

I am considering joining the BMW fraternity. I am considering a BMW 540i. Would love to hear input on this model. It is a 1997 with 95,000 miles. Car is very nice and has been a one "family" car. Mobil one since day one.

The car is so clean that I only have one burning question, the driver's seat does not appear to go back as far as the passenger seat. I suspect this is not normal.

Thanks!

Welcome to werkz. YOu are looking into a very nice vehicle. I cannot help you with the seat issue, but as SpeedInfusion said, it does not seem normal. CHeck out our 5-Series Tech section to get help from 5-er versed werkz members.

I have gone and done it this time...

I bought it...!!! Silver 97 with 94,750 on the odometer. Automatic. Garaged car owned by a 65 year old woman who wanted to get a MB CLK 320 coupe. The interior is probably a solid 9 of 10 and the exterior is a good 9 of 10 as well. I am quite pleased. I offered the seller $12,000 and she took the offer. The deal is only contingent upon a mechanics inspection on Monday morning.

So another car in the drive way, My insurance agent loves me!

97 BMW 540i

Other cars:
02 GMC Yukon 4x4
96 Toyota T-100
04 Toyota Camry
94 Corvette with 383 stroker! Saturday car only... when the polizei are distracted eating donuts!
