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

Review

If you can get a 2003 530i (old style) then buy that one. The "new" 5 does not even come close to this car. I have both 2003 & 2004. If I could get rid of the '04 I would in a second. The car vibrates at 80 mph. When the wind hits it is like a sailboat. Lots of wind noise inside. The headlights are pointed too low and you can only see about 10-15 feet ahead of you at night. It doesnt even have a coin holder!!! Definitely, does NOT feel like a BMW.

Favorite Features

Looks beautiful, unfortunately you can't see the outside when you drive the car. It's the handling and feel that really matters.

Suggested Improvements

Vibrates, noisy cabin, weak handling, can't keep straight at speeds over 75 mph. No coin holder. Home link placed on the rear view mirror, so every time you use you have to reset the position of the mirror. The iDrive is crap!
