2005 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)

Review

The car is great, loaded with all the features (premium, sport, cold-weather, navigation, etc) although rather pricey. The car is an absolute joy to drive, and handles like a dream. The performance isn't the greatest, i recommend not getting 530 because the 530i isn't such a great investment. If you want power, just go with the V8, its not much difference the 530 with 525. However, the quality of the car is great, and it is a real head turner. The leather has great quality, as well as the dash, real wood, and other things. What I don't like is the cost to own, but I guess you should expect it since you own a BMW. Also bothers me that everything is optional. (htd. seats, mp3, cd changer, etc)

Favorite Features

Fun to drive, head turner, self-satisfying, great quality, prideful.

Suggested Improvements

TOO MANY OPTIONS that should be standard! I mean come on, CD changer? Heated seats? Leather? Most competitors have that standard. Also maintenance stinks on it, tires are expensive and wear fast as well as brakes.
