2003 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
Being stationed overseas I figured it was time to buy a new BMW. I owned this car for 4.5 years, replaced all 4 rotors three times, also replaced 4 of 6 ignition coils throughout my ownership. All under warranty, luckily. Replaced the cub hold assembly, too easily broken. It's great to drive especially on the German Autobahn, but the headaches of maintenance were too much. I sold this car and after three months the new owner e-mailed and said the ignition coil went out.
High value for resale, looks great
If over 6 feet tall forget it, low lumbar supports, ignition and brake quality upgrades.
