Mein Auto: BMW 540i
Replace 2002 540i?

Hi to Everybody on the forum. I am original owner, black on beige, 2002, 76k miles, 540i, 6 MT, M sport. Fabulous car. Offered nice deal on new F 10, 550. It's tempting but I hate to leave the E 39. Yet if much mechancial trouble lies ahead, I would trade now to avoid headaches and get the new cabin technology. But the 550 in handling is an elephant by comparison.

I have replaced raidator, coolant tanks, most hoses, Vanos. I know that these cars get tempermental so I wonder what mechanical issues may be just around the corner.

In advance, thanks for the advice.
