316k miles and still drives like a dream.
This car has been in my family for 12 years and has not given me any major mechanical problems.
This has been and will be the best car I will ever own.
It has reliably performed throughout its service life.
No bells and whistles, just a bare bones car that never acts up.
I reliably changed the oil every 4k miles and did all maintenance myself.
For a 21 year old car it shines up like a new penny.
Beautiful, reliable, and a joy to drive.
I will miss her when she's gone...ought to go to a BMW museum.
What a joy.

I finally decided to give the 1991 525i a review. I only drive BMWs and the 525i is my 3rd beamer (automatic), I prefer manuals but... My 525i has 243,878 miles on it and it still rides smooth, tight and stiff. I did put a transmission in it at around 210k because the 3rd gear went out. Above all the regular maintenance and small things that goes wrong, like the cig, lighter(s) not working, I love this machine. It's the bomb.
