2005 BMW 5 Series User Reviews
525i Sedan shown
- $9,535 - $12,883
- No trim specified for this review
- Excellent styling interior and exterior, turns heads
- 530i guttless wonder for the money, this is a drivers car?
Totally unimpressed with the performance of the 530i, for an I6 the torque delivered during rapid acceleration is underwhelming to say the least; and for a car that is built on being for the driver to feel the road - you are certainly feeling the road, but in all the wrong places. Undercarriage feels flimsy - like a ford Taurus, and the steering isn't solid at all. Back to acceleration; there is a seemingly infinite delay in the response time when your foot hits the acceleration. This is the perfect car for those who want the looks but don't want true performance. I would test drive the new A8L prior to buying the 530I; Another good value for the money is the Volvo S80 T6, also an I6, however, the twin turbo of this engine propels the heavier frame of the S80 into another Galaxy.
