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


Great car. Quite a few features that make this car exceptionally fun to drive. Handles nicely hugging the road with complete confidence, very responsive, quiet interior. Overall this car meets most of ones expectations of a mid sized BMW although it is slightly underpowered for its size. At 225 HP it is sometimes not quite as responsive off the line. Although once at cruising speeds, just a slight tap on the accelerator produces quick and confident acceleration. Interior is nicely appointed and not overdone.

Best Features

Steptronics gear box, interior design, exterior body design although it took a little time to get use to.

Worst Features

Needs more overall HP and low end torque for quicker acceleration. For those seeking more HP, without having to purchase a new vehicle you might want to consider aftermarket engine/ cold air intake modifications to boost performance.
