Review

My son and I did European Delevery of
car. Drove it in and around Munich and
into Zurich. Finding our way was not a
problem with Nav System and the new i
drive was as easy as 123. My son is a
pilot for a major airline and found the
nav system easy to program as well as
trained me for my entire trip and all
of the destination through Swetzerland
with ease. Handling the car in the Alps
and snow was a pleasure.


Best Features

Steering system, breaking system distance cruise control, sound system and Upgraded seats


Worst Features

Cup holdes, intergrated cell phone system and storage

Review

THIS IS THE 4 BMW I HAVE OWNED AND THEY
HAVE OUTDONE THEMSELF. IT'S GREAT, FUN
TO DRIVE, GREAT ON LONG TRIPS, AND LIKE
BEING IN YOUR FAMILY ROOM LISTING TO
MUSIC. WITH THE SPORT PACKAGE YOU FEEL
LIKE A SPORTS CAR, ONLY TROUBLE IN THE
USA WE HAVE A HARD TIME FINDING A PLACE
TO OPEN UP AND MAKE IT FLY!!!


Best Features

SPORT PACKAGE AND STYLING INSIDE AND OUT


Worst Features

PLACING THE DOOR LOCK CONTROL ON THE DOOR TO UNLOCK OTHER DOORS WHEN OUT OF CAR AND REACHING IN, CENTER IS FINE WHEN DRIVING OR IN SEATS.

Review

Although I've only owned the new 2004
530i only 4 months I can honestly say
that its the smoothest and quietest car
that I've driven! The interior is
simple yet elegant and most all of the
controls are handeled thru the I-Drive
control, which after the first drive or
so, is easy to navigate. Its
a "cockpit" feel, esp. at night time w/
the reddish glowlites, but very
comfortable with the add-on Comfort
seats


Best Features

Upgraded stereo is the BOMB! Auto sensor wipers- what an invention, no more "in between stages" in trying to find the right delay between wiper passes. Heated front+rear seats-rear psgrs love em


Worst Features

Sirius Satellite was orig. scheduled for Feb 04 but as of May its still not avail. Also,lowering windows after shower create moisture in door cavity that remains so that when you lwr+raise later you streak windows when it dries- They need a better gasket

Review

Bottom line: 5 series bimmers still
provide "The Ultimate Driving
Experience" hands down! In my search
for a new car over the past 6 months, I
have reviewed and test driven over 10
different makes of 2004 vehicles
including BMW, Mercedes, Lexus, &
Infiniti. The BMW 5 series is, to me,
the VERY BEST in every category.
