5spd helps it a bit but its still only a 6cylinder pushing a pretty big/heavy car
I would say look at a 540 if its in the cards, you'll be happy you did

And welcome to max

this is true best way to find pricing is to compare prices in auto trader.. I see 1997 - 1999 540's with Spt Pkg. For just a little under $20k for something with 100k+ km
