I bought my 528i from a private owner
in CA with 88k mi. on it. My drive back
home to NM was nothing short of
breathtaking! I was between 95 and 125
mph the entire way and it felt as
though it wanted to keep going! HP is
rated at 190+ but moves as good or
better as most V8's, on the open road.
Handling is great w/solid ride. Putting
mi. on my car used to be something that
I worried about because of resale
value. Now that I have my 111k mi. e39
I don't worry about miles because I
can't think of a better place to be

Both interior and exterior styling.
Sport Packge (lowered suspension,17"

I just traded in my 1995 Volvo 850 T5R
after having it for 4 years... what was
I waiting for!! I have always admired
BMW's, but never a serious admirer
until now!! I looked at the Q45, the
GS 300 and the E430, but got a good
deal on the BWM w/ relatively low miles
for the year. It's as quiet as a cat
and I like the overall smooth ride.
Not crazy about the dreaded cupholders,
the climate controls are a little
strange, but minor complaints about a
great vehicle. I feel like I finally
arrived!!! Thanks BMW!!
Love it!! Period!!
