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


I have had this car since 2007 and just recently had its first problem, a gasket leak that cost $800 to repair, its been reliable, solid, wonderful to drive. Its the best looking car on the road in my eyes, I love the ageless design.

Best Features

Cold weather package with heated steering wheel and seats. Unlike other cars I've driven these seats heat up to top of back and end of legs. It can get -35 deg C in Edmonton and when you get into a cold car I find the steering wheel on most cars takes forever to warm. This feature is the cats meow.

Worst Features

I usually drive in sport mode as regular mode shifting is programmed totally for fuel efficiency, its in 5th gear at 60 km/hr. Those LEDs are not reliable.
