Great Car, but not Cheap to maintain
By amg0507 on


2005 BMW 5 Series 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I've had my car for a few years now and put a good bit of miles on it.
I've got 120,000 miles.

I've changed the battery, tires, oil, spark plugs, all the regular maintenance and it drives great.

But it's a BMW and parts are not cheap. . . it's also not cheap to have someone put them in for you.

If you want a car that is Cheaper to keep going, drive a Toyota or a Honda.

If you want to enjoy driving your car get a BMW.
Previously I've had an Rx-8, MiniCooper Sport, Lexus SC430 and a Honda Accord.

Best Features

the overall feel for driving and the silence in the interior.

Worst Features

cup holders are horrible. I Drive is not user friendly
