    Hello everyone,

    I have joined here as I am sorely tempted to change to an E39 540i from my trusty Saab 900 Turbo.

    I am after a little buying advice, when to look out for, good and bad points etc. If there are any buying guides for me to read then I will be able to go more fully armed when I start looking in earnest!

    Thanks chaps and chappesses!

    Thanks chaps, I will read later!

    I had fun last night in the 900, nice and slippy so lots of sideways wheel spin!

    Looking forward to traction control
