I recently bought this car with 168,584 miles for $3000.00. This is my first BMW and aside from the interior cosmetic problems, the body is still in excellent condition and the car runs GREAT!!! Looking forward to owning and driving the Bad Man Wagon!!!
Ease of handling, smooth ride and butter leather seats.
Tight fit around the leg area if you happen to be on the larger side.
this BMW is a solid ride. i bought it with 114000 miles for 4000 dollars. it was the steal of the century. the engine is smooth as butter with effortless acceleration in the top end(it could use some more low end power) it gets great fuel economy for a 6cyl, 20 city 28-30 at 65 mph on highway. the seats are incredible and hold their age magnificently. the trunk is huge and the same for the sunroof.the computer is nifty as well, i didnt think they had that stuff in 1992. i have had no problems at all with the car in 6000 miles of driving.
This car is not a speedster. Gearing is for practicality (wagon and 'touring' version). This is a road car. A dream on the highway. Solid cornering. It is a GREAT car. I'm up over 212,000 miles on this car and it is still GREAT! Sample problems have been: Door latch had to be replaced. Brake light module failed. Fuel pump replaced. Got to fo the a BMW pro on this car. Parts are always from the dealer. You can feel nickel and dimed (dollar and fived?). I have had several excellent up-end Japanese cars. The power is with the Japanese but the car itself along with the driveability goes to the BMW. I NEVER expected to get hooked. I am.
Cornering, brakes, style, finish. Trip computer is excellent... it tells you everything you want to know including performance (the miles/gal, range) to maintenance issues (which light is out, when you need the fluids checked). The car is built like a tank. You really get to like the car.
How can you spend nearly 40k on a car and not have a cup holder? The onboard computer lost pixels.
Straight to the point: 1) Reliable car. Bought the car with 138K miles on it - not a single complaint during the first year. 2) The performance is awesome, just shift AT into S mode and you can outrun most of the cars. Handles corners like it's glued to the ground. Definitely a fun to drive. 3) The only competitors at this price lack style and/or performance. 4) Comfort is superb: climate control, noice isolation, power everything. The list is unlimited. 5) Fuel economy: I get 20 mpg in mixed conditions with agressive driving. 6) Interior design: everything is where it's supposed to be. 7) Exterior still turns heads. 8) Overall:has 50K$ car feel:)
Comfortable, reliable, fast, rear wheel drive, quiet, 6cyl engine is great. Note: don't buy 535 - it only has about 20hp more but is way more pricey. If you need more HP - consider 1994 530 or 540. Those have 8cyl engines and "rated 10" performance.
None. Great car for the money. Not as firm as 3-series and not as bulky as 7-series, but has performance and luxury to match both. Definitely getting myself another 5-series. Probably will consider 540 next time. PS: oh, yes, you should see people's faces when they find out you drive a BMW ! :)
