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


I have the 545i with the sport package. It truly is a fantastic car. I have owned it for 24 months and still have a lot of fun driving it every day. It is fast, responsive and really connects with the road beautifully. The car really performs well at higher speeds. My mechanic said "It really doesn't start breathing until it reaches 80 mph. I highly recommend this car, It is a pleasure and a joy to drive.

Best Features

handling, sport package, sound system, overall performance and great gas (18 mpg city) mileage for a V-8

Worst Features

Cup holders but I've learned to live with them. With the i-drive there really isn't anywhere to put them.

I have the identical car in silver metallic grey. I love the ride...The suspension incredible. A few issues initially, changed the battery and zero issues. I suffer with back issues, this car cradles my back. This is my second BMW my first was a 530i great also traded for less miles. Super happy with it.
