2000 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan

Review

Great car, solidly built, nimble at high speeds. Monstrous brakes and the Stability system has saved me more than once - getting itself out of an understeer. There is only one real weakness - the tires. Once I upgraded the tires (wait for them to go on sale, $150s per tire every now and then, though i paid the full 200) i could not have been happier. Now I don't need to endanger all of my neighbors and strangers by driving a car-crash-incompatible SUV and menacing the roads in general. Last winter (a doozy of one on the East Coast), I drove 364 out of 365 days and that the vast majority of rolled-over and road-side crashed cars were trucks like the Explorer and Blazer.

Best Features

Great looks, nice but not overstated or wacky (like the new Beemers). Very very solid car.

Worst Features

trunk CD changers: annoying cupholders: cruel German joke TIRES: The original Dunlops slipped and fished. I now have Michelin Pilot Sport A/S tires, and the difference is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Astounding improvement in wet and snow handling, quieter ride.
