1998 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan

Review

I don't know what it is. When I decided to get a grown-up car, it was between a beemer or a benz. The Beemer won because I was only a grown-up, not yet a geeser. I'm in Hong Kong where there is a 120% tax on cars so my 3 year old 523i came in at US$30k after I beat the dealer down (who had it on consignment) by about 5 grand. But it's been a dream. During the 1st couple of months, I couldn't wait for Sunday mornings when I would take it out on the hilly back roads here to push the envolope on the corners. It's great. There's no other feeling. Oh, BTW, the 5 has room for the wife & kids.

Favorite Features

Handling, solid feel, and the GO when you want/need it.

Suggested Improvements

The gas milage is not great. In HK, the gas is US$5.00+ a gallon and it takes (I am not making this up) US$80.00 to fill the tank. ouch!
