I suggest you Google cost to repair. Weeping

You really need to undo this deal. Yes

2001 540i. Not sure if that's makes much of a difference.

Nope, sorry.

And to check cost to repair, try here. You will eventually need front and rear brake pads, front brake rotors, Check Engine Light Diagnosis, Drive Belt(s) Replacement, Spark Plug Replacement, Valve Cover Gasket(s) Replacement, Water Pump Replacement, Shocks front and rear, ...

Looks like you got hosed, Ato. Someone sold your dumbass brother a money-sink. Bail on it if at all possible.

If that's not possible - well, this thread will always be here for you...

RE: Ranting corner
Update: Turns out I am not paying for it (which was not what my brother told me). So I personally don't care how shit of a car my parents decided to waste their money on!

They know I am displeased with the model in general, as I refered to it as a piece of shit. I tried to find comprehensive crash test ratings for it, my search-fu must have been low, or I dun fucked up.

The car I suggested, a 2011 Chevy Cruze (my Dad said the 540i was 7,500) was around the same price (I'm not sure if that 7,500 was after tax or anything like that). Has a good safety rating and KILLS the 540i in the MPG race.

But hey, I'm not paying for it, so I am not the one getting gyped. It still boggles the mind why they refused to even LOOK at the Cruze though.

They thought I would be happy with just Bluetooth, I guess.

The 540i is a good car in that it handles very well, has good ABS brakes, and has above-average crash protection for driver and passengers.

I've owned BMWs since 1981 - always the 3-series as I find the 5-series cars too big.

So if you're not paying for it are you going to get a car of your own (because as Anj said, sharing it with your brother is a beyond stupid idea(paraphrasing a little)) because you should get a motorbike. Big Grin The MPG is fantastic, there's only 1 seat so you wont get "drive your brother too.." and your brother wont have his motorbike licence so wont be able to ride it so it will be all yours (where as if you got a car and your brothers was in the shop he'd probably want to borrow yours).
It's a win-win-win-win-win.
