another car i was thinking of is a 1994-1998 BMW 540i
6 speed. resale seems pretty strong though. around
16-19k with 75-85k on the clock. heather and were
bored this weekend and went to a bimmer dealer to
peruse and kill time. had a BEAUTIFUL decked out black
on black 1995 540i 6 speed. looks incredible. the
leather is perfect. the dealer was real nice. no
pressure. man, that 4.0L V8 is a sight to  see.

i know the 94-95 V8 had problems  with the nikasil
bores pitting and causing preamture blowby. this was
fixed in 97. the older cars got new motors, when
necessary, for free with a different bore coating. the
problem was due to a high sulfer content in US gas.
being california has lower sulfer content, it's not
really a problem. but who knows, eh?

question is, do i waste my time with the 540i? this
engine issue is a little freaky, but kind of a needle
in a haystack as far as the problem manifesting
itself. other than that, these cars a bulletproof. 

any thoughts on them? some of you might know, i joined
this groups looking to gather information about the
audi A6 2.7T 6 speed.
