2001 BMW 5 Series - Consumer Discussions

All BMW 5 Series Models

My 2001 525i wouldn't start. Just a "clicking" sound when I turned the key. Thought I may have had a dead battery; friend provided a jump. Still just a "clicking"--would not crank?...
One of the people I work with has a 2005 BMW 5 series and he did buy the extended SERVICE package when he purchased the car new. This was NOT a warranty -- just an extended "factory" mntce ...
I HATE the interior of the new 5 series. Not even the $85,000+ M5 has a decent interior. The grey plastic around the Shift-My-Gears knob screams cheap. The new M5 doesn't even have four-piston caliper...
Naturally, a 2002 car is going to have very few (if any) "problem areas," which I think CR defines loosely as areas where the car exhibits higher-than-average (within the class) failure rat?...
E38, 7 Series from 11/01/2000 up to 06/30/2001 E39, 5 Series from 01/16/2001 up to 08/31/2001 E52, Z8 from 01/01/2001 up to 08/31/2001...
They remained an available option in the E39 5 Series. For MY 2003, 5 Series has standard front and rear seat head protection with optional rear side impact airbags....
As you might know, I turned in my perfectly good 1999 328i with only 40K miles on it last year. I did in fact consider staying in the E46 body style (either by keeping my 328i, or by moving up to a ?...
Having driven both, here is my entirely subjective comparison of the 5 series vs the X5. (When I say "subjective" I mean not only personal opinion, but how do the vehicles "feel" w...
Took the X3 for a test drive over the Thanksgiving weekend. This car was a 3.0 automatic with the sunroof. This other guy had test driven it just before I did and we compared notes, and had remarka?...
"I also had a '99 (323i 5sp) and an '02 530i 5sp - both great cars..."...
I love two brand cars more than any others. First Mercedes-Benz and back in 2000 BMW. I loved all BMW models in 2001..Now it seems that in 2003 I am quickly losing interest in all new BMW models than?...
with the IS, RX, and ES lineup you actually think bmw has a chance??? BMW SELLS ONE CAR THAT THE AVERAGE AMERICAN CAN AFFORD. the average american cannot afford a 5 series unless they were living wi...
I am on a wait list for the new re-designed Series 5. I think it is a BEAUTIFUL car. BMW clearly learned from the mistakes of the 7 Series and crated this innovative piece of art. I do have to say tha...
do. So there again, it leaves me with a 2004 5 series to avoid the rear subframe problem that to my knowledge is part of the 3-series up until 2005 or go with an 07 3 series. I will take any opinio...
