Best value in the BMW line
By OC dude on
2003 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
Got this car as a demo with 7000 miles on it. Paid $37000 for a fully loaded car w/ every possible option. The 2.5 engine surprise me with its get up and go, especially if it's put in Sport Mode. I've had 4 adults in this car and still drive great with wonderful acceleration on the on-ramp. Build-quality is much better compared to my 2004 330Ci; definitely a step up from the 3-series. This car's interior is timeless compared to the spartan design of the new 5 series; quality of material and leather seeems to be of better quality; compare it for yourself and save yourself a whole lotta money by buying the previous generation 5.
Halo-lights (angel eyes), Napa Leather, One-touch window/moonroff, engine sound, xenon-lights, high speed stability, 4-years free maintenance, curved dash board that's no-longer available in the new 5.
