BMW never fails when it comes to designing quality sedans like the 540i. This vehicle has a V-8 engine and a 5-speed automatic transmission. It has 290 horsepower and a high speed of 155 miles per hour; it can also go from 0 to 60 miles in 6.1 seconds. This luxury sedan is perfect for those looking for a car with great features and a generous style. Some come with a moon roof, giving drivers a better ride while out in the town or going on a road trip. Those that like to drive a lot should play close attention to the maintenance and repairs needed for their vehicles. Whenever parts are needed it is important to buy quality over cheap to get long-lasting and ultimate results. It is always best to go with top-of-the-line parts because they will give your car better quality and will end up lasting much longer.

BMW 540i

The BMW 540i is part of the 5-Series line of vehicles manufactured by the Bavararian Motor Works. This is a series of mid-sized luxury sedan models, which were introduced in 1972. Since coming on to the market, more than five million BMW 5-Series have come off the assembly line. As of 2016, six generations have been produced.

One of the hallmarks of the 5 Series is the plethora of advanced features that include many high-tech safety systems and devices. Every BMW 540i includes iDrive technology, Active Roll Stabilization and Active Cruise Control, and Active Cruise Control, which minimizes the chance of accidents while traveling in heavy traffic. For those who find parking to be a difficult chore, there is a Park Distance Control. Buyers will enjoy the power of the large V-8 engine, which is connected to a six speed transmission that is available in either manual or automatic configurations. In attempts to live up to the BMW motto, "Freude im Fähren" ("Joy in Driving"), BMW offers an option known as "active steering." This technology adjusts the steering ratio based on road conditions and traffic. Although useful, active steering technology has not been popular with all drivers, who have found that - in the beginning, at least - it makes the vehicle a bit more unpredictable and difficult to control. However,, the active aluminum suspension, which automatically disengages the vehicles anti-roll bars in response to various road surfaces, has received favorable reviews.

Buyers of the BMW 540i had two engine options, one rated at 282 horsepower, and the other rated at 291. Three different transmissions are available; two five-speed automatic ZF models, or a six spped Getrag 420G manual transmission. The Getrag, specifically designed for use with eight-cylinder, longitudinal engines, is known for its strength and reliability and ability to handle greater amounts of torque. Unfortunately, the internal shift linkages are known to fail, and neither Getrag nor BMW will offer replacement parts. The only realistic option in this case is to attempt to find BMW 540i aftermarket parts for this purpose, or replace the entire transmission.

Despite BMW's long-standing reputation for solid, precision engineering, BMW 5-series vehicles do have a few issues. One problem that seems to occur on older vehicles is radiator failure, caused by a crack where the upper inlet hose is connected to the radiator itself. The radiator itself will have to be replaced. Unlike many BMW E39 parts, this one is fairly inexpensive, costing around $200 - $250. BMW aftermarket parts, such as those made by Behr, cost a bit more, but may be a better choice, as these come with both a lifetime warranty and a lowest price guarantee. These, as well as many BMW 540i performance parts, can be obtained at significant discounts at online sources such as PartsGeek.com.
