Vehicle1994 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Wagon
ReviewI had been keeping my eyes open for an import station wagon, and happened across this beautiful car. I absolutely love it--by far the best driving car I have ever owned and the styling is classic -- people usually think this car is newer than '94, and it has almost 150,000 miles on it! A couple of things to watch out for in buying a used one: check to make sure the transmission has been rebuilt or replaced--there are apparently a lot of problems with this particular model. You also may need to invest in new control arms in the front end if they haven't been replaced already -- the bushings apparently get worn.
Best FeaturesGreat steering and ride, supercomfortable Seats, Sunroof, additional space (from wagon), comfort and stability at high speeds
Worst FeaturesIf you are a jack rabbit starter, you better get a 535 or 540. This is a heavy car, and takes a little time to get rolling with just the 2.5L engine. Smooth as butter though, and it does accelerate well for passing etc. once you're moving
