2001 530i with Premium/Xenon

2001 BMW 5 Series Sedan 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Bought my 2001 530i after a few months of research but dealer left a bad taste. The car is fun to drive and looks awesome but seems to require regular visits to the shop for various issues like radio, cup holders, wipers, bulbs, etc. The dealer experience is terrible - I have tried 4 different dealers over 3+ years and it is the only major regret I have (enough to make be go to another brand for my next car). Poor handling in snow. Front bumper is low enough to require frequent visits to the shop. Side and rear visibility is poor due to small mirrors and huge headrests.

Review

After years of deliberation - I recently became the proud owner of a 2001 525i. First impressions, to put it simply, I'm looking for excuses to drive this Vehicle... The exterior to this day still turns heads. (Noticing lots of brake dust on front wheels..)

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!

Definitely the ultimate driving machine

Review

This is the best car I've ever owned. Everything about it reeks of quality and attention to detail. Gas mileage does suffer in city driving (16 mpg) but it gets a whopping 30 mpg on the highway and it's smooth as glass.

Review

This is an exceptional car that combines true two-seater performance in a 4-door family sedan's body. Like other reviewers, I smile every time I get in and head for an interstate.

540 6-speed

Review

Fantastic vehicle. Two years after the fact it still brings a smile. Great acceleration, smooth ride, good looks.Replaced stock differential with Dinan 3.15, added other Dinan upgrades.Acceleration from 70 mph to 120 is amazing.Wish the car had a bit more rear leg room. Only minor maintenence problems with light bulbs, key losing initiation and aux. fan. OEM Dunlaps fair, replacement Bridgestone Pole Position SO4's poor, Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3's by far the best. Has held its value well, by far the best car I've ever owned.

Review

If you're like me and had to give up the vette or some other two seater toy for the family....the 540 six, or M5 should certainly delete and sadness! This car is great, and if I didn't see the 4 doors it could easily pass for a true sports car. I've disappointed a few cars including a CLK430, 99M3 (modified) and recently the new 350Z. It's the best all in one car I can think of at the moment that provides family time and performance driving!
