1995 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan


Review

Note: I own a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country, 1991 Patherfinder, 1993 Ford Escort and there are no comparisons to any of them. I bought this 10 year old BMW with 91000 miles on it. I must say that this car is the best car I ever drove. The car makes me feel that I have full control of every inch to the car. It gives me the feeling for ESP, because the response time is incredible.


Best Features

Radio system, BMW engine.


Worst Features

This year is the best.

1995 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan


Review

Purchased a used Dinan 5, 540ia supercharged. I had owned a 1985 735ia before. Interior was very close to the 735. Power and handling was vastly better. 0-60 in under 5 sec and 60-0 makes your stomach turn. Corners are FUN. 90 degree corner at 60 kph and no problem staying in my lane and No tire squeal. Wow, I have driven many sports cars, but this defines sport.


Best Features

POWER/HANDLING. Drivers car.


Worst Features

Greater airflow for heater and A/C.

1995 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan


Review

After months of research and comparisons with MB and Lexus, I found my 525 5-speed. Considered a 98 but the 95 has the styling that won't look dated. After a year and 12000 miles no mechanical problems to speak of. Only gripe is brake light circuit warning light that has a mind of its own. Average overall MPG about 20 so far with the ability to get 28 or more on the highway if I can drive under 70 mph. Great car. Still under 100k so looking forward to many more ahead. Not a burner off the line, but better mileage than a v-8.


Best Features

Rock-solid stability on highway. Classic styling.


Worst Features

Original headlights were weak, replaced with PIAA

1995 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan


Review

The 530i has been a joy to drive and own. Reliability is less than perfect but overall it's a great car.


Best Features

Plenty of power. Great handling particularly for a faily big car. Very attractive both inside and out.


Worst Features

The car could be less expensive but you get what you pay for.

Review

Bought with 75K miles on it, nikasil engine block replaced with alusil at 46K mi.. It has incredible power, comfort and highway cruising ability and is extremely well made. You can't beat the classic BMW four round headlights look that these cars have. The V8s do have some problem areas (radiator, intake manifold gasket leaks, valve cover gaskets that leak with age, etc)but any buyer that does his/her homework and buys a solid car won't regret it.


Best Features

The power can be addictive and really comes on strong above 3500RPM. Overall quality of materials and solid structire make newer, cheaper cars feel like, well, cheaper cars.


Worst Features

Better factory sound system, Larger wheels, tilt steering wheel (it does telescope).
