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


I understand why this 530i was Consumer Reports highest rated car ever in 2001. I got a Mercedes after my first BMW, but after experiencing this 530i, I may be a BMW loyalist into my 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and if I need a personal driver by the time I reach 100 years old, he/she/(or it if robots can drive by then) will be behind the wheel of a BMW. BMW, keep up the good work!

Best Features

Body design, sport package, traction control, wheel design, anthracite metallic color, automatic rear sun shade, comfortable front seats, steering wheel, steptronic transmission shifting

Worst Features

Better drink holders, a rear camera to assist parallel parking, night vision enhancement on front windscreen, project speedometer on front windscreen. BMW is well on its way to these improvements, but they need to bring back the 2001 body design and make the iControl more intuitive and user-friendly
