1991 BMW 5 Series Sedan 525i 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased this car off the showroom Floor in October 1991. I wished I could buy a new one again! This car has been a DREAM, it currently has 281,000 miles on
the original transmission and engine. I've always changed the oil every 4,000 miles and have always used Mobil 1 Syn. OH! by the way...always make sure to
change all your fluids (Brake, power steering, rear end, coolant as needed. This is the year 1991 where BMW went from a timing belt to a timing chain. The M50 engine also has a large-big pusher oil pump. I might be buried in this thing..............DiD I ever get my money's worth. Learn to work on the car yourself...it's not that hard. The only thing I had to change was the ECM....there's a place in Miami that will repair ECM's for $400.00 with a lifetime warranty....besides that just regular maintanance. This vehicle doesn't burn a drop of oil. Automobile of the Century!

Review

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.

Review

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.


Best Features

Road handling A+. Rear windows go all the way down (unlike American made cars). Front grill, the width of the car, trunk space, radio, tool kit, center console (I use the intergrated phone area as a cup holder) works great! Door locks, roll up the windows with the key, all sorts of good features.


Worst Features

Car mats, cigarette lighter unit, dual climate control for front and back stopped working early on, windshield wipers should be better quality. Rear lining by rear speakers should be replaced with the same lining used overhead.

Review

I have always dreamed of having a bmw because it has been in our family for around 25 years. That same car is still driving to this day with over 200,000. When I purchased mine with 130,000 miles. I loved the way it drives and how it handles the road and curves. I had my brother who owns a lincoln continental 1991 same year as mine and he test drove it for around 80 minutes and he told me that he should purchase this car and looked at him and said we are car shopping for me not you. he said this bmw drove better then his car. So I bought it and love. I never have any issues and my bmw now has over 161,000 miles and still going strong.


Best Features

I love the way the seat handles with the seat warmer. I like the alarm with the code feature in it.


Worst Features

They need to make more BMW's affordable for everyone to experience. Once people try one they fall in love with it!
