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

Review

Found myself wanting a sporty, high-end sedan and the 2001 530 with Sport and Premium is most definitely it. Took some time to find a manual, and silver wasn't my first color choice but found one with less that 50K miles. Car is beautiful inside and out, will enjoy for a long time. Sport suspension makes you really feel the road yet nothing jarring, acceleration is surprising with a relatively big car with a six cylinder, and the engine is incredibly quiet. Time will tell re reliability, disappointed that a week after purchase the alternator went out on me. Rec - don't take to dealer, find a good indie mechanic and get to know him.

Favorite Features

Two piece alloy rims. Sport package. Xenons. Beautiful interior. Incredibly solid feel on road. DSP stereo system impressive, esp. since not usually a strength of BMW's.

Suggested Improvements

No power for passenger seat with Premium package is strange. Pixel issue already starting to affect radio display. Just a little more HP would have been nice. Shift throws are a bit long, could be tighter.
