I have a friend with a regular E34 540 6-speed and he cannot find the ratios of his gearbox. I also looked on the web and I could not find anything on the subject...

Anybody?

As I understand it, the 6 speed fitted to the 540i is the same box exactly as that fitted to the 6 spd E34 M5's. Ratios for both are as set out below (I believe).

6-speed ratios:
1st 4.23
2nd 2.53
3rd 1.67
4th 1.23
5th 1
6th 0.83

Hope this helps.

Cheers

The above is correct, but remember the 540i/6 has the looooooooooooooooooooooooooong 2.93 diff so the drops in rev's are a lot bigger!!!!!
