The best I have owned
By pathmd on


2004 BMW 5 Series 545i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6M)


Have owned my 545i for 2 weeks. Have
Z3 and X5 as well. This car is a
monster on the road. Zero to 60 in 5
seconds is no exaggeration. The car is
tight, assisted steering is superb.
Plenty of heads turn when the car
passes. Found i-drive to be no
problem - basic controls are still on
the dash board. Mileage overall 19.4
mpg after 800 miles. Recommend buyers
get the largest engine you can afford.
Nothing about this car will disappoint
you. Watch your speed. Esy to hit 85-
90 mph without noticing.

Best Features

Exterior styling makes this car like nothing else on the road. Engine and steering with sports package. Sound system is awesome. Backup warning is great. Transmission is excellent.

Worst Features

Have noticed that vapor control shuts off prematurely and repeatedly when fueling. Has happened at several different stations. Need better cup holder for driver.
