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


I have had my 530i/5-sp with
PP/Xenon/fold-down seat for 18 months,
and it has been a real blast. Contrary
to what other reviewers might have
suggested, the standard non-sports
suspension on these cars are extremely
capable, and does ride on rails on
experienced hands. The clutch is a
piece of car(again, for those who are
trained). The engine pitch is so sweet
and smooth that you can upshift and rev-
match telepathically. Heel-to-toe can
be a bit difficult, unless the brake is
almost fully depressed. In addition,
the non-sports car is so QUIET that I
can hear the fast breathing of the
passengers! :-)

Best Features

Smooth Inline six; firm manual transmission; super quiet interior; impeccable exterior styling. It blends sports and luxury flawlessly, a genuine ultimate driving machine.

Worst Features

Cupholder; indash 6-CD changer
