2001 BMW 5 Series Wagon 540i 4dr Sport Wagon (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Wow. That's all I keep saying everyday I drive this car. After years of lumbering around in SUV's of all sizes I started looking at BMW wagons on the strong advice of two good friends. Now I am forever indebted to them! This car is an absolute dream to drive and I really don't feel that I have lost much (if any) cargo space. The power delivery is powerfully smooth and seemingly never ending. The car is very quite and handles like its on rails! You will want to drive everywhere! If you have the opportunity to pick up the 540i rather than the 528i or 525i, do it! This car has put the fun back into driving for me!


Best Features

Attention to detail (the German's know how to build a driver's car!), gorgeous lines, the power and handling!


Worst Features

More room for back seat passengers, a better console arm rest without the useless cut out, storage under the console armrest, integrated holder for sunglasses, CD changer with ESP to eliminate skips, better cup holders, and loose the sunshade brackets on the bottom cushions of the back

2001 BMW 5 Series Wagon 540i 4dr Sport Wagon (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Not only the best wagon on the market, but the best car. The wagon actually gives you 50/50 weight distribution. Handles better than the sedan. The extra torque of the 540 is worth the investment. I have used it to haul and road trips, etc. Did a euro delivery too, so got to drive it on home turf. Seeing euro delivery is actually cheaper, one would be crazy not to buy that way. New wagons won't be available (E60) til 2005-06.


Best Features

Engine, Nav, split fold down rear seats.


Worst Features

A manual, diesel engine, better mileage. Don't need cup holder, just need to drive.

Review

Wen my wife and I were about to have our first child a couple of years ago, we looked at every SUV on the market. Nothing satisfied us, plus the fuel mileage for the SUV's was horrible. My wife then suggested a BMW wagon. We went to the dealership, and I was pleasantly surprised! We have the sport package that makes the car sit a bit lower with nice low-profile tires. It also has tight steering due to the sport package. I feel comfortable driving this car even when the kids (we have since had another one) are not in the car.


Best Features

Performance. Styling.


Worst Features

Better cupholders. Better stereo sound quality. Improvement to design of front bumper bottom to resist snagging/scraping on concrete parking guards.
