2004 BMW 5 Series Sedan 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Awesome. Thats all I can say. This car
is the most fun car I have ever drivwen
and I have driven a few. I would
recommend this highly to anybody
looking. The only drawback was I went
with the 525 for my wife and I would
have rather gotten the 530 for the
extra power. Other then that no
complaints at all. We got premium and
Sports package and the car handles like
a dream


Best Features

Sports package and headlights. Again it handles awesome and I do like the I- Drive system. Its very convenient when you learn to use it.


Worst Features

Only improvement would be a bigger engine and that was my mistake because it was available I just didnt get it because I felt it might be to much for my wife. Little did I know how well the car would perform. If I would have known that then I would have gotten bigger engine

Review

Exterior is good, nice body lines.
Interior is less fun for driver, but
comfortable for passangers.
Design of front panel could be much
better,that includes I-drive screen
portion.Too many conflicting shapes,
looks very heavy.Performance is very
good, the car is fast and solid.
Turning radius could be less but it's
O.K.


Worst Features

Get rid of I-drive.

Review

I absolutely love my new 525i. I was
in the market for a E300 and I said,
what the hell, let's stop at BMW..fully
prepared to hate them. My car drives
like a dream. It handles like it's on
rails and I have the confidence of
knowing my car will do what I want. I
now look forward to my 50 minute
commute to work through the crowded So.
California freeways. If I had known I
enjoyed driving so much, I would have
spent the extra $$ for the bigger
engine.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the way this car handles. I love the exterior styling and the look of my xenon headlights. Great fuel economy compared to my former SUV.


Worst Features

Cup holders. Center console useless. I hate the turn signals. Push a little, 3 blinks. Push a lot, won't turn off and you're driving down the road like an idiot. I'm not too crazy about having to press accept on the iDrive.The clock won't display if the seatbelts aren't in use.

Review

This is a great car to drive. Fast
and fun. Easy to handle. The i
control isn't too hard to learn, but
you should really have a teenager
there to help. I do find that
sometimes settings are changed and I
have no clue how I changed them or how
to change them back. It will require
you to look in the owners manual to
fix it. BMW has contacted me several
times as well as the auto dealership
that sold it to me to inquire how I
like the car. I feel like I am being
treated very well by BMW. I love this
car.


Best Features

I love the automatic wind shield wipers and the xenon lights. They are beautiful.
