5 Series Excellence
By Oscar Laud on
2003 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
The 5 Series 2003 model is the apex of
design and build excellence. The six
cylinder (an engine BMW has perfected)
is smooth, quick and dependable.
The sport package (with rims and M
steering wheel) is well worth the
price. Buying this vehicle in 2003,
before the new controversial style, was
the smartest auto purchase I've ever
The 2004 has considerable shoes to
fill. Keep in mind that this version of
the 5 series scored the highest rating
ever in Consumer Reports. Ever.
Automatic rear window sun screen.
Brushed steel, wide spoke rims.
Leg extenders on both front seats.
Style and elegance.
Removable glove compartment light.
Keyless entry buttons directly on key.
Consider cup holders.
Consider 7 series type key or flip out
key like VW.
