Review

Puts a smile on your face every time you drive it. A big fast effortless cruising machine with loads of safety features. The interior room makes a long trip very comfortable. The drive fun factor is only exceeded by my wifes 2001 530I Sport.The car now has 47,000 miles on it and so far I've replaced the A/C pump, radiator, expansion tank, water pump, thermostat and it's housing. In additon a complete fluid change on everything. The cooling system componants were replaced as preventive maintainance measures with the exception of the water pump that had failed. All of the preceding is part of the price of owning one of the finest, safest, rides available.

Best Features

Safety, luxury, fun to drive. Long trip comfort, all the power anyone could want and you still get 25mpg at 80 mph.

Worst Features

Accessory componants need serious improvement, cup holders, seat side panels (they break where the electric seat controls are, disabling the power seat and steering wheel adjustments. The biggest item that needs improvement though is radiator life, they're 50,000 mile radiators.
