2002 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sport Wagon (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This car has plenty of room to carry
whatever you need, but with the driving
pleasure of a sports car. A long time
luxury SUV driver (Grand Cherokee,
Denali XL), I wanted a car that handled
better for a change. This is
definitely the one. It is definitely
nice to look at, and if you take this
car out on your favorite windy road you
will experience complete
exhilaration.


Best Features

Nicely appointed. Comfort seats are terrific. Great digital sound system. GPS is great too. The acceleration and handling are the coup de gras.


Worst Features

For some stupid reason the center console does not provide any storage - simply an oversized arm rest. Guzzles gas like nobody's business, especially in sport mode, but you don't buy a car like this for good gas mileage.

2002 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I drive my 530i(sports premium,18"
wheels) from Heidelberg to Frankfurt on
a weekly basis. One word..exhilarating.
If performance,quality ride, and luxury
is what you want, then this is the car
to buy. All I can say is that I love
to see the "unlimited speed" signs.


Best Features

Handling, ride, and overall performance


Worst Features

Take away the govern. This car is meant to be driven fast...I should say faster.

2002 BMW 5 Series 540i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Great car. This is the third BMW I have
had the privelege to own. The first two
were both 328i's. I loved the way they
drove, but they were too small. I ended
up in this car as I got a good deal on
it, and it's even better than the
328's. It's a great size (the back
seats in the 3's are just too small)
without being too big. I wish it did
not feel quite so heavy - but it's a
price I'm willing to pay.


Best Features

6 spd is great. Wish the highest gear were a bit higher for better high speed cruising - but, then, I suppose that clocking in somewhere over 2300 rpm at 80 mph isn't THAT bad.


Worst Features

The cupholders are plain tragic. Why are they even there? How about an OFF button for the auto climate control?
