My 5-Speed Wagon
By Sharkey on
Vehicle2002 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
ReviewApparently a stick-shift BMW 5-series
is a tough sell in Los Angeles. So, I
landed a good deal on the car. It is
equipped with both the Sport and
Premium package, Xenon headlights, and
Park Distance Control. After owning
Japanese luxury cars, you notice the
lack of amenities like a center
console, extra sunvisors with
extensions (the 5-series sunvisors
can't really be utilized to shade the
driver's side window), an auto-dimming
rear-view mirror, and an in-dash CD
changer. The sport seats can be tough
on your left thigh when clutching. All
that aside, it's the best-handling,
highest quality wagon I've ever owned.
Best FeaturesHandling, ride, steering, brakes, manual transmission, and build quality.
Worst FeaturesMore amenities like real cupholders! Sunvisors that really can be swiveled, with extensions; A center console; An in-dash CD changer; An auto-dimming rearview mirror should be standard on all 5-series'.
