1995 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Wagon


Review

I never intended to buy a BMW but thank goodness I did! the 530 is an awesome car, it is comfortable yet still has a sporty feel. The engine response is slightly delayed due to the automatic gear box (it takes half a second longer than a manual shift to kick in) but after that first pause, it flies. I have only owned this car for 3 weeks but it has stolen my heart. I would recommend a '95 BMW 5 series to anyone. P.S. If you are getting a very weak airflow through the dashboard vents, make sure you check the pollen filters (found buried under the dash, you can access them from the driver's foot well on right hand drive models). They clog up with dirt quite quickly and reduce air flow.


Best Features

The power, styling, comfort.


Worst Features

Better factory fitted audio.

1995 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


Review

This car is a mixed bag. It is extremely comfortable in front but cramped in back. It gets fairly poor gas mileage, about 19 mpg in mixed driving. OTOH it is fast even by today's standards; the engine is a joy, and it handles amazingly well for such a big car. The steering is perfect, the brakes are excellent, and the controls are generally within easy reach. One exception is the window controls, which inexplicably take up most of the area between the front seats, where a console should be instead.


Best Features

Engine, handling, steering.


Worst Features

Cupholders.

1995 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


Review

I wanted a performance car and a luxury car. I got both from one car with the 540i. With very slight mods it is even better.


Best Features

Interior and motor.

1995 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan


Review

I have a red 5-speed and it is a blast to drive. Terrific at responding to the driver's intentions. Mirrors and car shape allow for very easy viewing of other cars around you which can really make a driving experience. Driver is truly in complete control. CLASSIC body style. Car looks incredible when clean. Very tight steering and VERY impressive handling for a sedan. Car loves to be pushed. Built to be driven. I average about 24 mpg and can go well over 400 mi on a tank. Trunk space is a-plenty. Back seat leg room a little tight. Nothing better than taking this baby out on a warm sunny day with the windows down and the music up.


Best Features

I love the tight construction, and can't say enough about the body style. It just so good-looking! Love tracking my mpg on the on-board comp every time I fill up. I like the way the hood lifts up away from the windsheild. But the drive is what makes this car.


Worst Features

Cupholders, but don't take away my little area around the shifter!

1995 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan


Review

This is a great car. I have had two BMWs both 525i's. They are both great cars and you can't compare to the quality in it. Also is very good for drifting if you're into that thing.


Best Features

The engine is smooth and quiet and is a very comfortable but fun ride.


Worst Features

Watch out for fixing these vehicles it costs a lot. Needs cupholders and some more power to the engine. 190hp is ok.
