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


Having owned a 1989 535I until 11/03, I
was very happy to consider a new 5
series. When I saw the 2004 I had to
have it. I love the perfomance and the
handling(nothing like going over a
winding road at 80 and not knowing it).
I love the safety and the looks. They
need to get rid of the 7 series
technology. Every 6 weeks the car is at
the dealer with an air bag/restraint
system failure and no seems to be able
to fix it.

Best Features

The adaptive headlights and the premium sound system. The comfort of the seats on a long ride.

Worst Features

The computer system has too many bugs. My 525 has spent an awful lot of time at the dealer trying to fix an air bag fault that no one can find and even BMW says they don't have a fix.
