1997 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan
Review
Initially, I wanted to purchase a 7 series, but discovered that I could get the same V-8 in a 540. Plus! Why pay a few extra thousand dollars to have leg room for people to sit in the back who are not paying your car note! The 1997-2001 5 series look basically the same, so I used the “worst house in the best neighborhood” theory and purchased a 1997 in mid-Jan 2004 with only 52K miles on it. At the 61K mark, the cooling system died and I got that and all belts replaced at an independent BMW shop. I saved some pennies and went from riding a bike to getting this BMW! :-)
Favorite Features
1. V-8 2. Gas milage 3. Limited exterior design changes between 1997-2001.
Suggested Improvements
Cup holders...of course! Master A/C control on steering wheel. More easily removable flashlight in glove compartment.
