I LOVE This Car

Vehicle
1995 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan
Review
Bought Al (Alpine White) in 2002 with over 100,000 on the odo, just turned 196,000. The car is solid, well constructed, and a joy to drive once you get it going. Overall average 21 MPG, 27 MPG on the highway at 80 MPH. Replaced several T-stats, radiator, most all of the suspension parts and bushings. Have had a few issues with power windows and seats. The engine has been bulletproof. The tranny is starting to slip in reverse. I get compliments all the time about how beautiful the car looks. It's a classic! I love the car and will drive it until the wheels fall off.
Favorite Features
Classic good looks. Solid build and engineering. Simple controls, just the right amount of electronics. The car was built for those who appreciate a machine that has spirit and wants to be driven hard, not just get from you from point A to point B.
Suggested Improvements
The 525 is a bit under powered. Cup holders should have been incorporated into the design by 1995. Weak radiator and cooling system design.
