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


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".

Review

It is a fantastic car to drive.


Best Features

The interior layout of the car without the navigational system- very classic.


Worst Features

Standard side airbags for the back seats and adjusting xeon lights. Also, they should the current model because the new one is not quite as nice.

Not the fastest, or the best handling, but the total package is perfect.

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


Review

Best car I have owned. 3.0 liter engine has reasonable power for the money but the 4.0 would be better. 5-speed manual trany is fun to drive but not always as smooth as I would like (could be my fault to). Have 7K miles on it and have had no warranty or other issues.


Best Features

5-speed manual transmission, handling and comfort on trips


Worst Features

seem to have been addressed with new 2004 5- series
