Review

Bought 1989 525i new. It was my 3rd BMW. It has been great. No problems in 117000 miles. Great drive. I am going to get a new car for improved safety (i.e. airbags). Unfortunately, the next car won't be a BMW because of weird style and i-drive of coming 530i similar to 745i.

This puppy flies

Review

I'm the third owner to this vehicle. I recently purchased it from a friend for a few grands. Besides the fact that it's a BMW, I was blessed with its color- electric red. This puppy has over 170k miles on it and still drives super smooth. Friends who drive 2002 non-bmw cars immediately feel the difference when they get into my '90 BMW. If treated right, these engines can gracefully acquire 250k- 300k miles. I've yet to spend a dime on it. It honestly feels like a $25k dollar car, which isn't even a fraction for its current retail value.

Review

We bought a BMW 525i in may when we fisrt arrived. We couldn't beleive what a buy we were getting. I mean we paid cash for a BMW and thought it's just a matter of time before something major goes wrong with. 4 months later and she goes like a dream and start up like she has been waiting all night to go for a drive. As my mechanic said this is the best engine that BMW ever built. It will just go on and on and on as long as you look after her !!! And trust me we do.

Review

One of the best BMWs ever made. I have owned three BMW and I have enjoyed every one, but my 1990 525i has been unbelievable. 140,000 miles on the brakes and 155,000 miles on the original clutch and still counting. This is with four different drivers and 50/50 city and highway driving. Great looks, functionality, and dependability. Now if it just had a little more horsepower.

Review

I've owned my 525I since new (11 years). The only thing I would comment over the years is the maintenance cost is expensive, however one should expect,you pay for the price of luxury, and outstanding performance...I have no regrets in my ownership!! A well built car
