Fun to Drive but lacks Quality
By rpcmig on


1999 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


Bought new in 99 and currently have 65k
Great handling and sporty ride.Awesome
to drive but it's starting to fall
apart.It's been back to the dealer
countless times to replace different
sensors.Currently having electrical
problems. Something keeps draining the
battery and the car won't start after
sitting for an hour.Dealer says repair
could be expensive.
Everyone knows the cupholders are awful.

I feel we paid way too much for what we
got. We would have been better served
with a Lexus or Volvo.

Best Features

Great handling and exterior looks. Comfortacle front seats.

Worst Features

How many times can cupholders break? Overall quality needs to improve. More rear leg room.
