Fun, quality, and styling at a price
By S90 on
Vehicle1994 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan
ReviewThis car has "soul" and loves to be
driven. It is rock solid and handles
beautifully, but at 75k mi., you are
going to have to pay for the fun: a
new radiator, thermostat housing, hoses
and water pump, power steering hoses
suspension bushings, struts, valve
cover gaskets, drive belt, etc. Once
you pay for all this, the car is like
new again and you just keep driving it
and enjoying it. If you don't want to
pay for maintenance, get a Japanese
sedan. If you want to enjoy the drive
to the office, get the 5er. Drive them
back to back and you will understand.
Also, be aware that the early V-8
motors (530i and 540i) had issues.
Best FeaturesHandling, ride, overall build quality, timeless styling.
Worst FeaturesMore durable suspension/sub-frame bushings, power seat cables that don't break. A cup holder.
