I ordered the blue water mettalic with the grey montana leather. It goes quick and the stereo is nice, though I should have ordered the 6 cd changer

2003 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

There is a terrible odor which is created by mold growing from condensation on the air conditioner. BMW has not been able to fix it. After futhur research I have found that this is a common problem on the 5 series. If you read the owners manual carefully you will see that BMW is aware of this problem, and has choosen to address the problem by saying that condenstion is normal. What a joke!


Favorite Features

The mold smell from the air conditioner makes any positives about this car irrelivent.


Suggested Improvements

Put an airconditioner in the car that does not grow mold!

Review

First BMW I've owned but its a real driver's car. Having had recent STS's which disappointed me, the BMW is a real sports sedan. Well worth the price.


Favorite Features

Xenon lights, cornering ability & great engine.


Suggested Improvements

More room in back seat & realistic cup holders.
