A Man's Car
By psorota on


2003 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


I drove so many luxury cars before my
husband talked me into trying the BMW
525i that I just assumed that this car
would have all the creature comforts
that my former Lexus and others had.
NOT! No place for CD storage, no
place for purse, no lumbar support,
seat belts practically strangle me,
hard to get in and out of (too low, I
guess), small trunk, no A/C vents in
back seat. Altho I love the Septronic
transmission, I am not comfortable in
this car and have concluded it is
a "man's car" (my husband loves to
drive it). I doubt I'd buy another BMW
for these reasons.
