My 5-Speed Wagon
By Sharkey on
Vehicle2002 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
ReviewApparently a stick-shift BMW 5-series is a tough sell in Los Angeles. So, I landed a good deal on the car. It is equipped with both the Sport and Premium package, Xenon headlights, and Park Distance Control. After owning Japanese luxury cars, you notice the lack of amenities like a center console, extra sunvisors with extensions (the 5-series sunvisors can't really be utilized to shade the driver's side window), an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, and an in-dash CD changer. The sport seats can be tough on your left thigh when clutching. All that aside, it's the best-handling, highest quality wagon I've ever owned.
Best FeaturesHandling, ride, steering, brakes, manual transmission, and build quality.
Worst FeaturesMore amenities like real cupholders! Sunvisors that really can be swiveled, with extensions; A center console; An in-dash CD changer; An auto-dimming rearview mirror should be standard on all 5-series'.
