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.

Bmw 525i — my BMW 525i has a merc engine, a V6, and 3.0 at least... i guess it should be 530 :P it is speedy, but not that much fun to drive... because it is very steady that you dont feel like you are driving fast.. it has a very good build quality. however, when problems appear, they come by the dozen. It looks great, like it tells you (I am strong and fast) with a dark blue colour, the interior is great but needs some repairs.... there is something i am not sure of... this car have a CD changer that looks like an original one,,, but is it possible that a 1992 car has a CD changer?? dunno, maybe! milage is pretty poor, its 80 litre tank (20 gallons) is enough for a week at most, and it is used for about 35 kilometres (twenty-something miles) a day.. i find it is a very thirsty car.. however it is worth it.. fun factor: of cource it is fun to drive a car that accelerates like this, but u miss the feel of the road (like bumps and not being steady) that u get at higher speeds.

Pros: fast - cool look - doesnt make you feel like you are in an old car (has everything you expect in a newer car)

Cons: thirsty for fuel - too steady - when problems appear (which happens rarely) they come by the dozen

Best Buy Ever!? — I got this in february car as a temporary run about, not expecting much from it but it has exceeded all of my expectations. The ride, handling, steering, brakes and gearbox are all superb, only a tiny bit of clutch judder under light loads being the only noticeable (very minor) fault. The engine is very smooth and quiet and runs like clockwork...impressive considering its done 180000 miles!!! It goes well to, though needs 4000rpm to really shift and is not that quick off the mark at low revs, but makes a nice noise and 30mpg is a realistic figure in normal driving. The seat bases were worn, but otherwise the interior still feels solid and is very quiet. There is some rust to the wheel arches (BMW weak spot) but not much else, so better than most other 16 year old cars! Insurance is reasonable even at my age (21) and it has not needed anything fixing since I've had it. Great car!

Pros: Drives superbly, very comfy,  looks mean, cheap to buy, reasonable to run, reliable.

Cons: Slightly rust prone in certain places, despite zinc galvanising.

1992 Bmw 525i — BMWs are good cars, but can be expensive to upkeep. Interior is falling apart and things screech and creak. It would be better if I had it in manual. The car battery is located under the rear seat, which can make changing the battery or giving someone a jump an annoyance. Another negative is that the glove box is falling out.... or does when it is opened. The handling is good and the engine can pick up when it wants to. The BMW brand is a very good and trustable one. The weather band is also a nice feature.

Pros: BMW, Weather Band

Cons: Automatic

Bmw 525i Se — bmw 525i se, on 17 inch alpinas, bilsein suspension, a lot of power & a lot of comfort, i just cant help prefering the rear wheel drive cars, thease cars go on forever, its amazing how bmws always outlast the seats, iv seen em still going strong after 350 thou being on the clock, u gotta go for yhe se model with all the extras, you gotta lower em just an inch to get that better grip, avoid early 520,s and 518,s just a waste of time judging from expereince, the e34 520 was changed to a 24valve in the early 90,s where they were vastly improved, 535i's & 540Is are the ones to look out for, alpinas and m5's if you really into em, cus there a hell of a toy, id drive anywhere in my 525i always in such comfort, with no one stuck behind me, highley recommended

Pros: QUICK, BRILLIANT 4 JOURNEYS, PUR COMFORT, everything where it should be

Cons: cnt find one its a 5 series & i love em

Nice Ride- For A Dog — Worse car ever owned. Sold to me as a lemon. Needed a fuel tanker in close support. Nice ride though.

Pros: Looked nice and drove nicely

Cons: Drinks like a fish, had a cracked head which caused steam clouds behind it which used to annoy followers....LOL

A Great Touring Car — The handling on the car is spot-on. Great feedback is given so you know what the car is doing and how far it is willing to go. The interior is spacious and holds up well over the years if taken care of well.

Pros: A classic look and great dependability.

Cons: You have to be splitting hairs o start complaining about this car. The gas mileage (24mpg) is moderate, that's the first and last thing that I can say badly of this car.

Elegance, Prestige, Luxury, And 200bhp!!!!! — this car will always make you smile with it's 200bhp 2.5 litre 24v twin cam straight six power plant under your right foot and knowing if you press it hard down you will be hurdled from 0-60mph in little over 7 sec and will continue to take you over 140mph,and yet driving this car leaves you feeling happy driving along at 30mph,enjoying the plesent drive and refined engine sound and beautiful surrounding dash with more extras than a back street massage parlour safe in the knowledge that the idiot in the vectra sri trying to race you will be bearly visable in the rear view mirror if you could be bothered to try,or if you could afford to, £40 of petrol will take your fuel needle little over the quater mark and if you take it easy you might just get 27mpg, but if your heavy footed then expect more along the lines of 7mpg

Pros: smooth,refined, luxury,power

Cons: expensive to run

Yumm...... — My 3rd BMW, 2nd E34. Definately not my last. Great car, great performance, good gas milage, and rock solid reliability.

Pros: Lots of fun parts, good MPG, almost free wrench work, and a blast to drive.

Cons: umm....wood grain? Never been a big fan.
