1994 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan


I bought this car used in 2000 with
107K for my wife. Things show up due to
age, but the engine is bulletproof,
transmission is silky. 2 years later I
bought myself a '98 528i, then my
cousin leased a brand new 2002 X5i.
Then my sister-in-law got herself a '97
328is. Handling on all of the them
unreal - I avoided an animal on a
highway at 75MPH once, then I spun the
530 going at about 70MPH, trying to
avoid an obstacle on the road without
flipping the car on its roof. As I was
told, anything other than a BMW (and
some other high level brands) would
have flipped in the air. Those two
incidents made me a fan.

Best Features

Handling, can make a 90 degree turn going 45 MPH with no sweat, no brake.

Worst Features

Wish all of the models would have the "SPORT" package as a standard.
