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


I bought this car at a great price after someone took the hit of depreciation. I have never been more pleased with a car. The only problem I had with the car is the SES light came on after 2 months, gave me a P0102 code. Changed the MAF sensor for $150 and it hasn't complained till now. Dealer wanted 400 bucks for a 10 minute job. Can be expensive to fix, but well worth it if you can afford it. The car handles awesome and you are always under control, even when you think you are not. The engine is smooth and surprisingly quiet. I have low profile performance tires and road noise from them is way louder. I usually change my car every year, but i think this one is gonna be with me for a while.

Best Features

I like the i-drive. Styling Driving it feels right.

Worst Features

As always, cup holders are useless. Traction control is a bit too aggressive. Engine temperature gauge required, the car is a portable garage heater after a drive.
