2002 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Best car there is. I bought it in
Germany, took it down the Autobahn, got
it up to 140 mph. Car sat on the road
rock solid and seemed to say to me "Now
what?" It wanted to go faster but speed
limiter said no. This car is awesome
and the curves are gorgeous. The blue
color looks wonderful at night, but
kind of blah purply in bright sunlight.
The seats are comfortable and the
instrumentation is logically placed.
Only bad thing is the cupholders are
absolute crap. Won't even hold a soda
can - BMW should not have put them in
if they couldn't design them right.
One of mine is alread broken from
holding my narrow-based coffee cup.

Best Features

Better gas mileage than my wife's minivan.

Worst Features

Cupholders USELESS. HELLO BMW - can you hear this? Virtually all the other reviews echo this pain. You of all manufacturers should know better.
