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


Review

Dear consumers, All i can say is that the BMW 5 series IS the untimate driving machine...I have driven it from San Francisco to Mexico and have never had a bad experience....the comfort zone is amazing..The seat adjustments alone are worth the price...Take it for a test drive and find out for yourself...you will not be disappointed.


Best Features

My favorite features is the security/locking system....It is virtually impossible to lock your keys in the car...Everything is designed for the comfort and convenience of the driver and the passengers.


Worst Features

If i HAD to suggest an improvement It would have to be a better selection of chrome rims...The selections is limited if you want original BMW wheels.

Review

Great car with terrible Sport Seats. They are very, very hard and impossible to get comfortable in. You also loose the heated stering wheel with the sport package.


Best Features

Xenon headlights and water sensing wipers


Worst Features

Put some cusion into the Sport Seats, and give me the heated wheel.

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


Review

Bought the 03 automatic model with all possible options including sport package, M aero kit and suspension for US$40000, what a steal. The 530i totally exceeds my expectation even on BMW high standard. It accelerates with sweet smoothness, handles with sharp precision with the just right sporty and European taste.Drove the 04 model, all I can say is get the 03 while you still can.


Best Features

strong torque, smooth tranny and the sporty feel with the just right level of luxury.


Worst Features

Status quo will do. Keep building the "ultimate driving machine", not "ultimate computer on wheels"

Review

Got my 530i with M Executive Package (premium package + sports package + M trimming, ie, loaded)for a year end dirt cheap price. This car exceeds everything I expected from even the high standard of BMW. It accelerates with such sweet smoothness, handles with such precision and the interior has just the right European and sporty taste. . Also did a very long test drive on the 2004 530i. If you are a real bimmer lover, go out there and grab your 2003 model before they're all gone.


Best Features

Engine, handling, strong torque, auto sunblind, the just right feel.


Worst Features

keep making them the way BMW been doing, don't change things for the sake of changing. This is the "Ultimate Driving Machine",not the "Ultimate Computer on Wheels".
