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.

Review

However, Like the commercials say, I do find excuses to drive. I would buy this car again. Unfortunately there are a few negatives. The cup holders are small and awkwardly placed. When using them it is almost impossible to access the climate control system. I did not purchase the navigation system because I didn't want to give up the on board CD player. My 530 is a manual shift and came with the sport package. I find the gear ratio rather difficult to handle in stop and go traffic. The car wants to get up and run. BMW has engineered a marvelous automobile that will continue to be a pleasure to drive for many years to come.


Best Features

Auto wipers and Head lamps Safety features like multiple air bags


Worst Features

cup holder size and placement integration of navigation system without comprimising the onboard CD system.
