Buy one if you can...

2003 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Well-rounded car is an understatement. Great torque & power, smooth inline 6, best exterior design BMW ever made, handles really well for a large car. Only regret is not buying a new one because I know I would have babied the car a lot better.
LOVE exterior styling headlights, tailights, & wheels (sport package). Love leather bucket seats that hold you when your cornering. I love the stereo (premium package) & trip computer. The engine is so smooth you would never know you were at 4,000 RPM needing to shift gears.
I can't stand the damn squeaks the doors have had since I bought it. Warranty pretty much took care of it. However, I hear slight creaks from the dashboard and from the ceiling. Could use a few more horses at the upper band.
