2000 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Wagon
I bought my car used, 3rd owner at 108k. I drove it a year and had continuous cooling system problems. It turns out the previous owner cracked the head by overheating the car. I replaced the head myself and now the car is fantastic. You cannot have these cars serviced by the dealer, it is way too expensive. Do maintenance and repairs yourself or find a good independent mechanic, there are many. This is a great car on the highway and the handling with the sport package is exceptional. Overall the car is very well made and you can see where the money has gone to. I would highly recommend to anyone.
Handling. Good gas mileage (32 highway). Extremely comfortable. Good looking. The cupholders aren't THAT bad.
Better stereo, the bass is weak. Wish it had a more reliable cooling system.
