1993 BMW 5 Series Sedan 525i 4dr Sedan


Review

This car was purchased in 2010 as my first car. I have loved it since the day we bought it with 149,000 miles, it's been reliable, comfortable, and it has superb handling. Now that it has 184,000 miles it still drives like a champ. It did have a few missteps, but you don't buy a $1,800 BMW and expect it to be perfect. First the passenger side window motors went out in 2010, then the alternator in 2012, and the cooling system finally in 2014. Still, it never really let me down, it has gone through three accidents relatively unscathed too. Awesome german engineering.


Favorite Features

Heated/Power/Leather seats, sunroof and it's vent feature, the auto up/down feature for both front windows, the information display, easy to work on, the way the hood opens is pretty remarkable, large fuel tank (21 gallons).


Suggested Improvements

The gas mileage (Average 17.8 MPG), no anti-theft alarm, non foldable rear seats, how easily the armrests wear out, window issue is too common, headroom not horrible (could be better).

Review

I purchased a 1993 BMW 525i when it had over 121,000 miles on it. I did not blink when this great automobile came my way. I paid under market value for the car and it was in excellent condition. I have not had any problems with this thirteen year old beauty. It drives smooth and incredibly quiet. The style is a little dated, but the interior features are not. This old car is still quite a luxury. Anyone thinking about owning an older BMW should not think too hard, because my car is proof that reliable engineering will last over 200,000 miles. This 13 year old BMW is the first one that I have owned and I now claim to be an exclusive BMW owner.


Favorite Features

Power sunroof, power driver and passenger seats, excellent factory sound system, dual climate control, and the interior lighting.

Review

I have been BMW shopping for months and then I find this 525i on Ebay of all places. What can I say. This is it. A gem of a car. Fun to drive and looks to kill. The automatic sport trans is a thrill and the power is never ending. These are great values right now. Get a good one with low miles. Mine is at 77k.


Favorite Features

The interior cabin is inviting. Nice and soft and big. Wood trim, power seats and power sun roof are nice.


Suggested Improvements

Better stock audio options. If all BMW owners keep changing the 15" stock rims out how come BMW has not loaded them with at least 17" BBS rims. There is a land fill site somewhere with thousands of boring 15" stock rims.

Review

The feel and power of this car makes me feel like I'mm actually driving a sports car. But the roominess reminds me that I'm in a sedan.


Favorite Features

The speed.


Suggested Improvements

the dash is too complicated with the service light feature. Simple is better
