This is the third BMW 5 Series that I
have owned, and I have bought all of
them used about 2 years old. My specs
for buying each of them have been to get
a black 4-door, 6 cylinder, manual
transmission with less than 50,000 miles
on it. When I sold my first two BMWs,
each had more than 200,000 miles on it,
got great mileage (27+ MPG on the road,
and both were running extremely well.
Current model(1999)feels heavier, but
gets better mileage, and a BMW is fun to
