1990 BMW 5 Series 535i Sedan RWDReview

Bmw 535i Rocks! — I loved that car. It went too fast, especially going thru the Rockies uphill passing. I enjoyed the caboose heating leather seats. Those were the days. It's a myth that parts like brakes and pads cost more because it's a BMW. Good mileage if you take it easy. Punch it-it goes now. Loved the stick. Nicest car I'd ever had.

Pros: This car could really move. Heated leather seats. Sunroof. Mafia black paint.

Cons: Look like a hit man or a drug dealer driving it. Maybe not in Europe.

Executive/sport — If maintained a great car but if you run it down it gets expensive in the end. When I sold my 525 it had done more then 400K km and the engine/gearbox had never been adjusted or anything.

Pros: Classic look, handling, comfort, sound

Cons: No TC or esp

Great German Build Quality But Getting Old Enough To Need A Lot Of Work — Best drive car I've had. Great power (211hp), handled beautifully, very nimble for a big car. Build quality was great with tons of extras.

Pros: Fast, safe, powerful, looked awesome with big alloys, tons of extras

Cons: Getting old and needed a fair bit of work over the years I had it.
