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

Review

This is my second 5 series BMW. It provides the fun driving experience of a truly responsive car while providing the room and flexibility I need to also use it for work. It is a joy to drive on the highway especially in the mountains. It makes going to meetings fun. Given todays gas prices I appreciate the true 32 mpg I get on the highway. The controls and guages are all easy to read and work. I wish mine had the more extensive trip computer. I have found nothing that matches the handling and sheer fun of driving a stick shift BMW. There have been minor mechanical glitches which have been fixed under the BMW warranty.

Favorite Features

Handling, sound system, comfort of seating

Suggested Improvements

Put the more elaborate computer on all models,have the stick shift lever a little lower, sun visor should not hit the drivers head when deployed to the side, Sun visor should move on its mount or extend so that it can cover the whole side window. My Ford explorer had that.
