1999 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


I have loved it since day 1. Now has 203,000 miles and still love it. Love taking it to the mountains and pushing it to its limits. Very comfortable and easy to drive. With newer tires it rides like a dream. Only have had three issues...rear wheel sensor--$1,000 in 2005. In 2007 AC went and the repair bill was $2,500....ABS Module went...cost is going to $1,000-1,500....unfortunately repair/maintenance is starting to cost too much. Did well for several years...guess mileage is starting to show. Think I have reached my return on my investment.

Best Features

It truly is the Ultimate Driving Machine....very reliable and dependable. Love the controls on the steering wheel and the comfort in the seats...fits like a glove.

Worst Features

Wish they made the cup holders reliable and realistic...what a joke. Larger trunk area...I love the diagram for three golf bags in the trunk...what are they kids clubs.
