Recommended year/model for new BMW owner

Hello Everyone,

I've always wanted a BMW. We are selling our current vehicle and "down-sizing" so we don't have a car payment anymore. The budget is about $6k (I know, not much).

I live in the area code 45419 - Kettering, Ohio USA. Looking within a 50 mile radius, many of the models that are coming up are '99 540i's.

So, I am sorry for the vagueness of this post but I am asking for some input on what I am getting myself into. I know many vehicles come with their own host of issues (Volvo's and timing belts, etc.) so I'd like the input of users on here as to exactly what model, year, and variables I should be aware of with purchasing my first used BMW.

Thank you so much for any information!
