91 525i — the ultimate driving machine! the car responds to abuse with enthusiasm. loves to attack the corners and cant wait to go sideways. just a joy to rip around the streets in our eat up the freeway at triple digit speeds. this car has the best seats i have ever sat in, modern electronics that rival the standards of today's cars. i never wanted to leave the car once i was sitting. if this bimmer wasn't so dated i would buy another in a heart beat.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Takes abuse with enthusiasm

Cons: Slightly underpowered

Cheap — It's old. It's fast. It handles like a shopping cart. It's nice on these old german roads, plus if you run it into something, you might die, but if you survive, you could replace the car for around $2000 dollars. Good car for the money but not the best. It was probably a beast back in it's day.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Cheap

Amazing. — well, my father bought this car brand new off the lot. its as old as i am, 17 years. i love this car to death, and i wouldnt trade it for anything. its the most fun car ive ever driven. it does need work, but i'm willing to put the time and money into it. the fastest ive ever gotten it is 97mph, but my dad got it up to 130. i wanna beat that someday.

Pros: it flies.

Cons: needs work.

Bmw — It has a sunroof, leather heated seats, and a nice roomy trunk. It's white with tan interor, and it is very clean inside and out. It is a little doggy when taking off, but gets to 65 mph smoothly and quickly. It has a nice solid ride on the highway.

Pros: 25-30 mpg, smooth ride

Cons: A little doggy on take off, have to give it back in a week.

Bimmer 525i — I bought this car at abit of a steal, Performance and build quality@BMW's best, needs a little TLC to get it back to it's former glory. Fuel consumption is adquate for the engine size and the size of the car, very large luggage space. The handling is superb which adds to the fun factor

Pros: Performance, Handling,Comfort and reliability

Cons: Genuine parts are expensive from dealer

Excellent Daily Driver In It's Priceclass. — The performance is still OK by todays standards, but nothing special. New BMW's with the same kind of performance use half the petrol this uses. The engine is great for daily driving as it's got a lot of low-rpm torque. Quality is excellent and it's not too costly to maintain. However it needs to be looked after, if it hasn't been maintained well it can be a real handful to drive. I owned one for three years and not much went wrong with it, but it does require more care and service than your basic japanese car. But it's a lot more fun to drive than said japanese car and quite safe for it's age too. They are getting a bit old, so finding a good one can be challenging or costly.

Pros: Great handling, comfortable, stylish, safe

Cons: Consumption, old age

'91 Bmw 525i — well, it only cost me $1,500! it's my wife's car & i am driving it until i can afford my own ride. it was rated the safest car in its class and had the shortest braking distance of any vehicle made in 1991.

Pros: awesome braking power! great handling! roomy, comfortable, safe, reasonable mpg

Cons: expensive to repair, lot of electrical issues, could use more power

E34 525i Review — It's a tank and very reliable. There is a very strong following so it's easy to fix yourself with internet posted articles. The e34 up through 1995. It's a great car to tour in.

Pros: well built, comfortable ride, mechanically reliable

Cons: occasional Lampe Kontrol Module malfunctions.  Nothing you can't fix yourself

Snow Tires! A World Of Difference. — Great car inside and out. Durability, exceptional. I would, however, recommend the 535 in this year. It's just a bit faster with better performance.

Pros: Solid body, 196k miles and still driving strong.

Cons: $570 for a muffler?  Are you kidding me?
