2001 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Value is nothing short of exceptional when you consider the rating factors relative to the price. In fact, I doubt whether you can find a better car for the money. Superbly designed and built vehicle!


Best Features

Great handling and fun to drive.


Worst Features

I have one and only one negative. The front cowl is too low to the ground and can easily hit and/or get caught on a curb or parking bumper.

Review

I have found the 525 to be a great value in the luxury car class. It does lack some performance, but as a daily driver it is hard to beat.


Best Features

Style.


Worst Features

If I had the money and had it to do over, I would buy the 530.

Review

This car provides the most satisfying driving experience u can get from family car with four doors. Sufficiently fast, excellent build quality (except for a few minor glitches), superb handling and performance. This car is just great. Get a feeling of euphoria when driving it, so much that I find myself looking for excuses to drive it. Pure confidence. Engine has nice muted growl, gets ur adrenaline pumping. Acceleratoin is great, even with auto. Can't believe there is only 2.5 liters under there, feels more like 3.5. Styling is timeless. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE.


Best Features

Superb performance, feel, driving pleausre. Confident handling, secure cabin. Gets ur adrenaline pumping even hours after u have put down the keys.


Worst Features

Better base stereo, cupholders, more rear leg room.
