1994 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Wagon


I had been keeping my eyes open for an
import station wagon, and happened
across this beautiful car. I
absolutely love it--by far the best
driving car I have ever owned and the
styling is classic -- people usually
think this car is newer than '94, and
it has almost 150,000 miles on it! A
couple of things to watch out for in
buying a used one: check to make sure
the transmission has been rebuilt or
replaced--there are apparently a lot
of problems with this particular
model. You also may need to invest in
new control arms in the front end if
they haven't been replaced already --
the bushings apparently get worn.

Best Features

Great steering and ride, supercomfortable Seats, Sunroof, additional space (from wagon), comfort and stability at high speeds

Worst Features

If you are a jack rabbit starter, you better get a 535 or 540. This is a heavy car, and takes a little time to get rolling with just the 2.5L engine. Smooth as butter though, and it does accelerate well for passing etc. once you're moving
