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

Review

I have had my 530i/5-sp with PP/Xenon/fold-down seat for 18 months, and it has been a real blast. Contrary to what other reviewers might have suggested, the standard non-sports suspension on these cars are extremely capable, and does ride on rails on experienced hands. The clutch is a piece of car(again, for those who are trained). The engine pitch is so sweet and smooth that you can upshift and rev- match telepathically. Heel-to-toe can be a bit difficult, unless the brake is almost fully depressed. In addition, the non-sports car is so QUIET that I can hear the fast breathing of the passengers! :-)

Favorite Features

Smooth Inline six; firm manual transmission; super quiet interior; impeccable exterior styling. It blends sports and luxury flawlessly, a genuine ultimate driving machine.

Suggested Improvements

Cupholder; indash 6-CD changer
