525i Review
By bigmike on


2004 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


525i Auto w/ Premium & Cold Weather
Pkgs - Looks great inside & out.
(What's all the fuss about? They kept
the classic BMW styling cues, but made
it sleek, & modern looking.) Lots of
convenience features (i.e. driver
position memory, dual climate control,
free scheduled maintenance, etc.) 2.5L
6-cyl is adequate, but unexciting. Auto
transmission is smooth and shifts
well. Ride is refined and quiet, as
you would expect. Roomy and comfortable

Best Features

Looks great. Nice Climate Control System. Quiet, refined ride & handling.

Worst Features

iDrive System is a pain to learn and use. It does allow you to customize many of the cars features, but it is not intuitive to use. (At least remove the Audio System from iDrive and give us conventional audio controls!) Horrible cupholder placement & design.
