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


If you can get a 2003 530i (old style)
then buy that one. The "new" 5 does
not even come close to this car. I
have both 2003 & 2004. If I could get
rid of the '04 I would in a second.
The car vibrates at 80 mph. When the
wind hits it is like a sailboat. Lots
of wind noise inside. The headlights
are pointed too low and you can only
see about 10-15 feet ahead of you at
night. It doesnt even have a coin
holder!!! Definitely, does NOT feel
like a BMW.

Best Features

Looks beautiful, unfortunately you can't see the outside when you drive the car. It's the handling and feel that really matters.

Worst Features

Vibrates, noisy cabin, weak handling, can't keep straight at speeds over 75 mph. No coin holder. Home link placed on the rear view mirror, so every time you use you have to reset the position of the mirror. The iDrive is crap!
