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


Euro Delivery on a 525Ti is the way to
experience the capabilities of this car
without looking in the mirror for black
and whites.

Pick up the car in Munich, it's ready to
go, fully insured for 30 days, a tank of
gas and no restrictions, plus you save
7% off the US price.

The car is a dream, sports suspension,
tiptronic shifter and adaptive controls
make driving a pleasure. On a French
road a dog ran out at 60mph+, I hit the
brakes thinking new hood ornament, the
car stopped so fast my wife didn't have
time to scream ! The dog walked away.

The 525Ti takes the biscuit. I should
have known this when I noticed Munich
cops in 5 wagons as standard issue.

Best Features

Self leveling suspension, makes roundabouts a straight line.

Worst Features

Move the cup holders to behind the gear shift, where they are located now they completely obstruct the climate controls. Move the emergency & door lock buttons to a vertical location (see cup holders above) our small dog sets off the alarm every time he moves from front to back.
