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?...

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...

"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...
