I bought my used 528I with 68616 miles
and its just been a fun experience. I
think the exterior design really
attracted me to buying the car. The
interior is in great shape with really
good quality leather. Nevertheless, I
think that for a luxury car of this
price, the cupholders must go!! The
stereo is just ok. Overall, this car is
excellent!! It takes the same amount of
money to buy a new domestic car or a
used 3-5 year old BMW with low miles.
My choice... Buy the Bimmer!!
Great Exterior Design!!
Dual A/C temperature choice!!
Nice Leather quality!!
Everything pretty much seems of high
quality!! ( except cupholders )
Cup holders are a joke! Dollar store
There should be some storage under
center console.. as it is its just
More 12v outlets!
Cd in the trunk? I didn't like this!
The styling of the E39 is perfect--
understated, sensuous, mysterious, and
with the right wheel package, subtly
aggressive. Performance is incredible--
tracks through corners like it's on
rails, accelerates quickly, cruises
effortlessly at speed. Leather is
This is the kind of car you will never
tire of driving. Haven't had any
mechanical issues yet. It will need
routine maintenance and parts replaced
as it has 100k miles on it. Still--it
drives like it's brand new. Smooth,
quiet, and fast.
This car is just plain beautiful.

This is the finest car I have ever
owned. Recently we moved to NC where
almost everyone drives a truck, so of
course I talked my wife into trading
in her 94 Volvo 850 turbo wagon in on
a new Tundra which I now drive,
giving her the privledge of driving
the BMW. She hates it??? She claims
the most comfortable seats in the
world are hurting her legs, and the
dash controls are too complicated. I
keep offering to let her have the
truck, but she doesn't want to drive
something that big everyday. We will
soon be trading in this beautiful
classic for a new Cross Country,
breaking my 18 year streak of owning
BMW's. It's too bad the truck is so
I have never owned a car that puts the
driver in such a perfect position
between the seat and the steering
wheel for enjoying the incredible
handling this car puts forth.
The cup holders should have been
recalled long ago. They really are a
driving hazzard if you make the
mistake of using them.
Friends in our small Midwest town
cannot understand why I "settled" for
this car when a new Chevy could have
been purchased for the same price. If
they could only drive this beauty,
they would understand. The
performance and handling of this car
is pure joy compared to its American
counterparts. In addition to being
rock solid at 90+MPH (reflecting it's
autobahn roots), it handles the
tightest of curves like a steel
rollercoaster. I can barely stand to
drive the family minivan anymore!
Steady ride, polished looks, great
brakes. Automatic traction control
gives this rear-wheel drive vehicle
surprising control on snowy roads.
Interior is comfortable and the heated
seats are heaven on cold mornings.
The cupholders are a joke -
particularly the back ones. Wish
there was some type of storage in the
center console, seems like wasted
space as is.
