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


Over audi a6, lexus gs300, I chose BMW
530ia with prem&sports pkg. The engine
is more than adequate with rich torque
across the band for everyday commute
and some fun in between. The sports
seats with the thigh support is a plus
for 6+footers like myself. sport
suspension is a little firmer than
standard but still provides comfortable
ride and minimal bodyroll in corners.
Interior and exterior designs are one
of the classics. And the smooth inline6
which hums the best engine music in its
class. Of course, you can hardly hear
it in low rpms. overall, it's a joy to
drive and ride.I often have to beg my
fiancee(The car was
bought for her)for the keys.

Best Features

Smooth engine and beautiful tone at higher rpms. Classic designs and logical controls. A true sports sedan.

Worst Features

Cupholder-remove or enlarge. I can barely squeeze in a 12oz DrPep. Two rearview mirrors could be larger. Too much brake dust.
