1997 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


I bought my 528ia last year, and I love
it! Not only is it fun to drive, but I
get great gas mileage, and I get a lot
of attention from the guys! I have
never had a car before that responded
as quickly and powerfully as this one.
I would like to have an M5 but as of
yet can't afford it. Thank goodness I
didn't get that 98 328 convertible I
looked at first! My car is gorgeous
outside and inside.I'm only 26, so I
didn't want a sedan that looked like an
old lady car. I doubt that I will ever
buy a car by any other maker! So far
reliability has been good.I'm at 47,988
miles now.

Best Features

Exterior styling,interior bucket seats, that red glow inside the cabin that makes you feel like you're in an airplane,easy to read instrument panel,choice of different sounds for stereo,battery stashed away in trunk. car is so quiet you can't hear the engine idling.

Worst Features

geez these cupholders! they don't hold anything. a center console would be nice. maintenance is a bit expensive(oil changes are $59.95, front brakes were $458.00)so if you're not ready to pay a bundle for reapirs and regular maintenance,BMW isn't the carmaker for you.
