A pleasure to drive

by gdp from fairfax, va | December 21, 2019

Fantastic handling and driving. Much more fun to drive than my previous Cadillac CTS, Mercedes e350, Lexus e350. Highly recommend this for its superior handling. M sport package worth the money.

Best BMW ever

by Lance Latham from Phoenix Az | November 29, 2019

I've driven BMW's off and on for over forty years. I used to give Mercedes a slight edge over the BMW. This 540 has made a believer out of me. Acceleration is thrilling. It can be economical in the Eco mode and a real monster in the Sport mode. Do yourself a favor and drive this car before you buy anythiong else.

Great cruiser

by Braddock from Houston TX | March 07, 2019

My best BMW yet, acceleration is fantastic, then put in Eco mode and get 333 MPG on the highway. A bit expensive when you add options (70K) but do not regret any My wife hated the ride on my old 2007 335, but loves this car, it is not a go cart around a corner, but I am older too, and enjoy cruising more now
