Just got a 2004 525i automatic with
cold weather package, xenon lights
(which are way nice!), leather and
premium package...very nice car!! I
had been researching extensively new
BMW's, Mercedes, and the like for the
last 5 months. BMW is a very solid
car. You feel very much in control.
Even though I have only had it a week,
it so far has proven excellent to my
high standards (I plan on updating
this entry in 6-8 months to see if all
is still well). I was also torn
between the 530 and 525, there really
is not much difference in the engine
perfomance considering an extra $5,000
for 39 more horsepower.
i drive, all the MANY comfort and
convenience "toys", BMW assist adds a
little more security to a drive,
climate control system is excellent.
Quiet interior and NO wind noise at
Cupholders (will not accommodate most
beverage containers). Really not too
