1999 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Wagon

Review

Have had this car for a month now. I purchased it as my 3 series was too small for the family. Absolutely the best car I have owned to date. Performance of V8 and sports package is amazing. Steptronic transmission is velvet smooth. Fit and finish are excellent. Maintenance is very reasonable if you do it yourself. Take a look at www.roadfly.org to learn about typical problems. Only problem is that wife and I fight over who will drive it. (she has an Acura MDX) Keep an eye on the radiator as these are known to fail every 50K. (A $300 DIY fix). Purchase a set of winter tires

Favorite Features

power, dry road handling, versatility, dsp radio

Suggested Improvements

cupholders are a joke, some features have to be programmed into computer by dealer (ex. turning off the alarm beep when you lock the car)
