    I drive an '03 540i with 168,000 miles. I do not believe any of the previous owners did the timing chain guides. After searching the forums and not finding anything about this, I'm creating my own thread with a few questions: 1 - What could these be? My original thought were timing chain...

    Hey everyone - new here, since this is our first potential BMW purchase. We're thinking about replacing my wife's '05 Accord (145K) with a 2003 540i. Just starting the process, but found what appears to be a good option from a private seller. Here are the details I have now: - 65K miles - 2...

    I have a 2003 540 Touring with 69,000 miles on it. I made the mistake of buying Sumitomo tires (they suck) and after a whopping 10,000 miles on them. They have feathered and I have bad steering wheel vibration between 45-65 mph. I've been told I need new tires and am due to replace the struts...

    I am looking to buy a 2003 540i M Sport, automatic, in good condition. I owned one and foolishly sold it to buy a new benz. Now I want it back! I'm in CA, but willing to buy out of state so long as I can bring it in state easily. Thanks.

    Just got a nice 03 540i Sport, should be here next week. Going to downsize to a 17" for the Utah winter wheather and thinking of the Blizzak LM-25. Tirerack's options are somewhat limited in 17" but it recommends staggered 235/45 and 255/45. Wouldn't I be better off going with 235/45R17 LM-25...
