1994 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan
Review
This 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. Avoid them.
Favorite Features
Handling, ride, overall build quality, timeless styling.
Suggested Improvements
More durable suspension/sub-frame bushings, power seat cables that don't break. A cup holder.
