Not your average soccer mom ride

2001 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


I bought this 525i wagon because the purchase price of the wagons were lower than the sedans, and I have two kids. I have yet to be disappointed. The low center of gravity (I stand taller than the car) and wide wheelbase give it a solid, performance feel very similiar to the sedan. Also, interior room rivals my Chrysler pacifica. It is amazing how much clear space there is for hauling with the seats down. The level control system compensates the suspension beautifully with a full load of family and stuff. It is a beautiful orient blue with honeycomb BMW rims, low profile tires and tinted windows. I love it.

Best Features

Interior space handling, handling, handling!!! Great gas mileage 25-30 mpg hwy. A great alternative to big momma SUVs style and nameplate.

Worst Features

The cupholders are horrible as w/ all BMW's, very crappy off the line starts due to super low torque, but triptronic feature helps if you feel like shifting.
