    Hi chaps.

    I'm Nev. I recently sold my immaculate GTi6 that I had owned for 5 years and took the plunge into big German cars by buying a 2000 540i Auto. It was just £250 more than what I sold the 6 for. I picked it up from Canterbury and had a 3 hour train journey followed by a 3 hour drive home (which using cruse control and sticking to 70 gave me a calculated 30 mpg).


    The old 6

    I have wanted one for ages and initially was looking at E34 manual 540's but the few that I found always set off huge alarm bells with problems with rusty wings and other big question marks over knocking from the rear and things like that. So I started looking at E39 manuals but again a bit hard to find and most seemed to have galactic mileage and about a grand over the price of an auto. Spoke to a few people who assured me that the auto is the sensible proposition on a car of that size and then went and bought the first one I looked at!

    Love everything about it so far apart from the way the MPG meter shows next to nothing when doing any acceleration at all!

    The radio display has gone to pot and I've been going through the "trial and error" method to get my CDs to play.

    I havent had chance to clean and take some pics but here's one off the sale advert.



    Anyone know the names of the wheels / what colour it it (apart from "grey"!)

    Hi Jah,Welcome to Bimmerforums.co.uk................


    Motor looks tidy
    Pop the hood and check the nearside strut for a label which'll give you the colour and colour code
