I am a newbee to this group. I have always lusted over the M5 and 540i, but
could never afford one. I found a 2000 540i with a 6-speed this weekend
with 137,000 "highway" miles on it. Is this excessive for the 4.4L V8? My
father is a Volvo fanatic and says that 137,000 on a Volvo would not worry
him as long as the belts were changed according to the factory schedule and
the oil was changed regularly.
Any comments on this possible purchase would be greatly appreciated.
By the way, I did drive the car and it is still wonderfully strong. I pulls
a lot harder than the Volvo S60 T5 5-speed that my father wants me to buy.
But I have always longed for a 540i or M5 within my price range.
Thanks in advance.
