Review

THIS IS THE 4 BMW I HAVE OWNED AND THEY HAVE OUTDONE THEMSELF. IT'S GREAT, FUN TO DRIVE, GREAT ON LONG TRIPS, AND LIKE BEING IN YOUR FAMILY ROOM LISTING TO MUSIC. WITH THE SPORT PACKAGE YOU FEEL LIKE A SPORTS CAR, ONLY TROUBLE IN THE USA WE HAVE A HARD TIME FINDING A PLACE TO OPEN UP AND MAKE IT FLY!!!


Best Features

SPORT PACKAGE AND STYLING INSIDE AND OUT


Worst Features

PLACING THE DOOR LOCK CONTROL ON THE DOOR TO UNLOCK OTHER DOORS WHEN OUT OF CAR AND REACHING IN, CENTER IS FINE WHEN DRIVING OR IN SEATS.

2004 BMW 5 Series 545i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

My son and I did European Delevery of car. Drove it in and around Munich and into Zurich. Finding our way was not a problem with Nav System and the new i drive was as easy as 123. My son is a pilot for a major airline and found the nav system easy to program as well as trained me for my entire trip and all of the destination through Swetzerland with ease. Handling the car in the Alps and snow was a pleasure.


Best Features

Steering system, breaking system distance cruise control, sound system and Upgraded seats


Worst Features

Cup holdes, intergrated cell phone system and storage

2004 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Although I've only owned the new 2004 530i only 4 months I can honestly say that its the smoothest and quietest car that I've driven! The interior is simple yet elegant and most all of the controls are handeled thru the I-Drive control, which after the first drive or so, is easy to navigate. Its a "cockpit" feel, esp. at night time w/ the reddish glowlites, but very comfortable with the add-on Comfort seats


Best Features

Upgraded stereo is the BOMB! Auto sensor wipers- what an invention, no more "in between stages" in trying to find the right delay between wiper passes. Heated front+rear seats-rear psgrs love em


Worst Features

Sirius Satellite was orig. scheduled for Feb 04 but as of May its still not avail. Also,lowering windows after shower create moisture in door cavity that remains so that when you lwr+raise later you streak windows when it dries- They need a better gasket

Review

Bottom line: 5 series bimmers still provide "The Ultimate Driving Experience" hands down! In my search for a new car over the past 6 months, I have reviewed and test driven over 10 different makes of 2004 vehicles including BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, & Infiniti. The BMW 5 series is, to me, the VERY BEST in every category.
