Riding a Silver Bullet
By TranC on


2000 BMW 5 Series 528i 4dr Sedan


This is definitely a driver's car. My
only complaint is that I should have
gotten the sports package. You
definitely get the lookies from
other luxury car drivers. The torque-ie
engine makes the car feel a lot faster
than it really is, but at cruising
speeds, the passing power of this car
can be felt and seen by those in your
rear view mirror; all you have to do is
nudge on the gas a bit, all without
having to downshift like other cars.
This is, after all, a car meant for the
autobahn where everyone drives like
speed racer.

Best Features

Plenty of torgue, quality in craftsmanship, great on long distant drives.

Worst Features

Everyone's probably sick of hearing this: the cup holder. Replaced it twice, and I'm still not at all happy about it. The A/C's a bit flaky. The Key-Remote can roll down the windows but it can't roll it up (my 328is rolls up all its windows when I lock the car.)
