1999 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Wagon


Purchased lease return at 43,000 miles from a used car dealership. The former owner was a middle aged lady, one owner. The car was basically just broken in. Have had car going on three years now and not a single problem except accidentally parking over a park stop and minor damage to the front air dam. Otherwise, absolutely a gem. The 17" BBS Cross-Spokes can be noisy, but the Bridgestone Turanza tires made it smooth as a Lexus, yet much sportier. The rim guards have prevented a couple rim rashes too. I'm veering off, sound off for the tires now. Anyways, I highly recommend this car, this years build to anyone considering.

Best Features

I've been an enthusiast to the styling, which is very clean lines and engineering focused design. The car is designed around a foundation that is refined and perfected. The wagon is a rarity stateside.

Worst Features

For these cars the standard cup holders are cheap plastic and break. Over time the front drivers side door rubber seal can wear out from repeated abrasions getting in/out of car. As mentioned above good tires on the upgraded wheel package, like Bridgestone Turanza.
