2001 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
This is my first non-US made car and I am in love with "my baby". I am 6'3" and 260 lbs. The 530 fits like a glove. Plus I have a family so I use the space of the 5-series. To me, it is the best of everything. As of this writing I have logged over 30k miles as I purchased pre-owned. Has had a bit more maintenance cost than my US cars however it is a high-end car which drives and looks like no other. Most issues are regular 'wear-out' items like H2O pump, hoses, belts.
Styling, engineering, handling, looks, 'Wow' factor, engineering, attention getter, fun to drive, really a classic sought after model (just a little larger than current 3-series as the 3 keeps getting bigger). And as one neighbor says, "Sweet".
