Review

I bought my 528i from a private owner
in CA with 88k mi. on it. My drive back
home to NM was nothing short of
breathtaking! I was between 95 and 125
mph the entire way and it felt as
though it wanted to keep going! HP is
rated at 190+ but moves as good or
better as most V8's, on the open road.
Handling is great w/solid ride. Putting
mi. on my car used to be something that
I worried about because of resale
value. Now that I have my 111k mi. e39
I don't worry about miles because I
can't think of a better place to be
than behind the wheel!


Best Features

Both interior and exterior styling. Sport Packge (lowered suspension,17" rims,etc.)Handling. Making the driver feel like they are in control.


Worst Features

Cupholders! They were already broken when I bought the car. The onboard computer to give an accurate reading on mpg. CD player instead of tape in dash. Replacing rotors @ every front brake job???

Review

I've only had my car for 2 weeks but am
loving it! It is solid, predictable
and responsive. Awesome brakes and
suspension. Beautiful car - a real
head turner! I'm glad I made the leap.


Best Features

looks, brakes, suspension, comfort, quiet.


Worst Features

The stereo needs MAJOR improvement. A tape deck? please.

Review

The car has be great since I have had
it in '98. Handles well and is designed
as you would expect from BMW.


Best Features

Handling is great. Quite, conmfortable ride combined with the tightness of a sports car.


Worst Features

There are a couple of things BMW could do better though - tires wear annually. While there is a trade off with high performance, this could be improved. I have been through 2 batteries. In part, there is no auto light shutoff on this model.
