2003 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Great car, all-in-all. We will
definitely buy another, probably in the
7 series next time around.


Worst Features

Better cupholders. Ours broke the first week we owned the car.

2003 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have the "older" design and its been
flawless for over 50,000 miles. I hate
the looks of the new BMW's so won't be
getting another one.


Best Features

Performance of the engine is excellent


Worst Features

Cupholders in the arm rest in the back seat would be nice as well as fold down seat as standard. You get these on economy cars for crying out loud.

2003 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is the only 4 door sedan to own.
Look no further as I have test driven
the competition. Save your $$ and opt
for the 2.5 engine as it is as quick as
you ever need to drive after 40 miles
per hour (not a jack rabbit start, but
who needs one). Luxury abounds with
interior appointments. Handling is a
dream. With the sport package, this is
the best looking car on the road in
it's class.


Best Features

Right side door mirror tilts down when you back up. On board computer is practical and usefull. Seats are extremely comfortable as is the drive.


Worst Features

You could offer a bit more of a sporty exhaust system with the sport package like Audi, Mercedes and Lexus. Looks like it came off a Camry.

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


Review

I've owned many cars in my 43 years of
existance, and the BMW 540I is the most
fun to drive, and the handling
characteristics are like a train on
tracks......sticks to the road.


Best Features

Handling & performance.


Worst Features

Better sound system in car. Factory system is extremely poor.

Review

Drives like a dream. Substantial yet
sporty, amazing pick up, feels like
driving on glass. Comfortable with
terrific power. A classic in the
making, I may buy more cars in my
lifetime but I'm NEVER selling this one.
Classic styling that drives like a race
car. If you enjoy driving, this is the
car. If you don't enjoy driving, you
will after this car.


Best Features

Power, heft, comfort. Heated seats and lumbar are the best of any car I have ever driven or been in and the pick up, unbelievable. An adult car with enough features to make you feel like the coolest kid on the block.


Worst Features

a little bit more leg room for people in the back seat, and maybe an inch or two more for those of us in the front.
