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


I absolutely love this car. I find myself making excuses just to go for a drive in this car. This car will truely put a smile on your face every time you take it out. I drove the 525, 528, 530 and 540 as well as MB E320, Lexus GS300 & GS400 and even Volvo S80 models before settling on the 530i. In my opinion the 530i is the best choice in this series for power and fuel economy. Regular maintenance is expensive but I expected that with BMW. No problems, except for the lousy cup holders. They break easily and are practically useless. Trunk could be bigger (height wise). Buy a good used 530i and you will never look back! By far the best car that I have ever driven.

Best Features

A blast to drive, fuel economy, rain sensing wipers, memory settings, M- sports package, looks.

Worst Features

REAL CUP HOLDERS PLEASE! Bigger Trunk, more rear seat leg room (I'm 6'4").
