The M sport 2003 version of this car is an astonishing car. Nothing like the standard 540i ,which itself is an all time great!

Are you serious with 5.5 and 5.6. I drive 6 speed manual 540, and the best to 60mph or 100kph is 6.3. How you do? How do I have to do???

The E39 is awesome. I just wish it had a nicer interior (design wise).

Dude you have your numbers messed up, the R&T times run for the E39 540I 6-speed had 60 coming up at 5.5 and the generally accepted time for the auto is 6.2 - 6.3. The 6 speed has a lowed gear ratio in first which allows it to get off the line faster while still being able to make it to 60 with only one gear change. The auto, with its higher ratio, is sluggish off the line and still needs to make the jump to second before it reaches 60.

6.4 sec is with automatic 5-speed gearbox, with manual 6-speed is 6.2
