2006 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Probably my 15th car over 25 years of driving. Definitely the best so far. Fun to drive, aggressive styling, few on the road, lots of looks. Gas mileage is acceptable (24 to 27 mpg depending on driving style). At the limit of what I would spend on a car but great size for 4 adults, long trips, safe and solid. The short 6 automatic gears create fun acceleration for a large sedan. And yes, it does go 155 mph.

Best Features

Acceleration, sound system (nothing better than Green Day blasting from the H-K system), body style, bluetooth enabled, all maintenance included for first 3 years and best of all, the absolute silence from wind/road noise when desired. You've got to own one in your lifetime. Go for it.

Worst Features

Some options are pricy (heated rear seats). Inventory is limited.
