Worth the wait.....

1998 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan
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.
