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


This is my second 5 series BMW. It
provides the fun driving experience of
a truly responsive car while providing
the room and flexibility I need to also
use it for work. It is a joy to drive
on the highway especially in the
mountains. It makes going to meetings
fun. Given todays gas prices I
appreciate the true 32 mpg I get on the
highway. The controls and guages are
all easy to read and work. I wish mine
had the more extensive trip computer.
I have found nothing that matches the
handling and sheer fun of driving a
stick shift BMW.

There have been minor mechanical
glitches which have been fixed under
the BMW warranty.

Best Features

Handling, sound system, comfort of seating

Worst Features

Put the more elaborate computer on all models,have the stick shift lever a little lower, sun visor should not hit the drivers head when deployed to the side, Sun visor should move on its mount or extend so that it can cover the whole side window. My Ford explorer had that.
