My Mistake
By My Bimmer on


2005 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)


If you are looking for a budget/luxury/family performance car with good gas mileage, this is it! Sleek design, very comfortable and exceptional power for a v6. Nimble, great cornering and nice road feel. I have had it to 150 mph, but it took a while to get there and I wasn't comfortable as I arrived. "Ah There's the rub". At about 125 suspension feels loose. The SPORT PACKAGE corrects that problem. 0-60 takes about 9.3 sec., an eternity when trying to catch a fast car. The M5 will correct that problem(0-60 4.3). The 530 is a beautiful machine.

Best Features

Comfort, interior/exterior design and stereo are superior. Handling at speeds less than 125 is awesome. Love the red instrument panel lights. BMW holds value.

Worst Features

More storage and better cup holders would be nice.
