2002 BMW 5 Series Sedan 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My expectations of this car have been met. It's fun to drive and is the most comfortable seat in the house. My bad back hurts in just about everything except my sport seats. I hate the noise I now have from the tires that started at about 10k miles and its getting worse. Those low profile tires aren’t all bad though helping turn-in that makes me smile when I need a little rush. I’m disappointed in the “slipping clutch” of the A/T. The upgraded sport steering wheel is mainly plastic and it stares me in the face. The in-cabin entertainment I paid extra for could sound better and have an in-dash changer.


Favorite Features

Always ready when you want to play. Solid construction leads to wonderful turn-in and still has a very comfortable ride. My last BMW had no rattles out to 213k miles and I expect the same from this one.


Suggested Improvements

Re-design the dash. No plastic steering wheels. Update the standard and premium stereos. Give us some CD storage space. Add sunshade extensions to the visors. Include adjustable lumbar support in sport seats too. Xenon high beams too. Use black carpet in all color interiors.

2002 BMW 5 Series Sedan 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The BMW 5 series has always been excellent and the current model introduced in 1997 is no exception. This is a quiet sophisticated car that has amazing performance. The 6 Speed manual transmission can be a little baulky when cold but once she is warmed, this car is phenomenal. As is the case with most BMW's (I have owned 6) speed is achieved with little fuss and the turbine like drive in the back never gives up, right up to maximum speed you can get away with. The car is, without doubt, one of the finest cars on the road. The interior is a little dated now, but this car is still a winner with build quality to match.


Favorite Features

Superb build quality, handling and engines (especially the 3.0 litre and 4.4 litres).


Suggested Improvements

Improved trunk space, updated interior to reflect the sporting character and slightly more leg room in the rear.

Review

This car is a joy to drive and has an exterior design that is plainly beautiful. The interior's design is average and the comfort is average. However, the driving the 530 is pure fun and comfort, with a stronge feeling of safety.


Favorite Features

The engine, exterior looks, and handling.


Suggested Improvements

The cup holders are a joke and city gas mileage is horrible.
