This is my first BMW. I was intent on
the 530 but couldn't find exactly what
I was looking for. The dealer gave me
a 525 Sport for 3 days. SOLD. Still
after 6 months, I'm impressed with the
giddup-and -go! My next BMW (2006)
will be a 530 and I'm sure I'll have a
renewed excitement but this 2.5 is
more than fine.
Caution: you will have to learn to
drive all over again. Super tight
handling can throw you a loop when
avoiding road debris, etc.
Don't worry about the cupholders. I
now only allow bottled water in my
car. They're low and a bit flimsey but
available on eBay cheap. 6 mos. no
problems and no messes; front or back.
Auto everything - lights, wiper speed,
temp. VERY tight and quiet. Just
