2001 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Bought this car new and have kept it 10 years. Have the manual transmission. Has been a dream to drive. Have had some maintenance issues, (blown radiator, fan, lights, replaced almost all suspension parts) and its really costly to get repaired. So, I went to the dealer to drive the new 2011 535, what a disappointment. The new one has more power, but has lost the great driving feel. It is just a completely different car than the old one. I guess I'll just drive my 2001 until the wheels fall off.

Best Features

Preciseness of driving feel especially when I get the acceleration and gear shifts in perfect harmony.

Worst Features

replaced the cupholders 5 times
