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

The Thought Of Owning One Is Better Than Actually Owning One. — Liked the sound of the engine, the cruise controle and the automatic gearbox. I disliked the reliability of the engine, the reliability of the gearbox, the failing aircon and high prices of parts. Fuel economy isn't influenced by the driver and how much he presses the throttle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The sound of the engine

Cons: Reliability, probably made on a monday morning.

Get One, It Lasts Forever — I expect to get at least 100,000 more miles on the car. Last 525 topped out over 200k. Car runs perfect, has a timing chain, not a belt, which was the earlier downfall. Of course need to fix other wear related things.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: dependable

Cons: pricy parts

Nice Luxary Bmw, Rather Expensive To Own But Very Comfortable — Its a classy well equipped BMW. Features many luxury's not found in a lot of cars today. Very comfortable ride that can be switched with the flip of a switch to sport mode, not the most powerful car in the world but BMW had class, luxary, and comfort in mind when they designed it and of course it handles awesome because after all, it is a BMW - The ultimate driving machine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable luxary BMW

Cons: Cost to own

Bmw 525i Touring — BMW 525 I Touring. Not much to say about it really, pretty dull, expensive, good brakes, bad interior. Very, very big though.Makes for a good load lugger which is the only reason I bought it. Very reliable and runs very well.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Lots of room inside

Cons: Expensive to run and maintain, seriously underpowerd.

Good Quality German Engineering. — Bought my 518i saloon 2nd hand in 1996 (4 yrs old). I needed a big roomy car. Very good condition but with 70k miles on it (it was previously owned by a journalist). Very heavy car for only an 1800cc engine, but a real pleasure to drive. Acceleration and performance ok for me even if not great for boy racers. Solid and comportable car, 4 door saloon with plenty of space everywhere. It looked good, and had excellent lighting in and out. Sensible internal styling and dash. No flimsy switches or controls on it. A bit expensive though, for servicing and parts. I got 27mpg from it (not too bad). I loved it. And I still miss it today. Final note: I would now go for a big hatchback BMW, simply because I missed the rear-wash-wipe (not available on a saloon model). I would certainly choose a BMW again.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reliability and comfort.

Cons: None really.

Happy Enough With It. — being an oldish car.. it's needed work.. once work was carried out, something else went boom.. gear box and suspention still needs work. I love driving it, it looks great when it's clean. She accelerates pretty quick for a big car with only a 2.5 ltr engine. being a bimmer, she's pretty solid - no random rattles and the engine doesn't soundj like a one man band. At around 11 leters per 100 kms, she's not bad on fuel. but I have spent the purchase price again on repairs... so she can be pricey at times. If a bimmer is what you're after - do the right thing and get a manual one

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it's manual

Cons: it's tempremental.
