Not An Ordinary Sedan — Perf-- seems fast enough (smallest engine 525i) BQ-- being a BMW most other cars cannot touch it App-- when I "adopted" this one, she already had a rough and tough 224k CoO-- so far, so good 20-30 mpg FF-- it's a BMW, and if you don't know what that means, go test drive one!! I have owned several 5-series. Most of them older than this one, but in much better condition. The 1986 535i seemed more powerful, but they all have been more fun to drive than most other common cars.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Build Quality, Driving experiance like no other, Good looking design

Cons: Small rear seat area (at least with a tall driver), RWD not the best on snow

Very Good Car — M50B25TU, mate to a ZF 5-speed manual and clutch assembly (from a E36 M3 3.0). 3.23 final drive. Custom exhaust, Z3 short shifter, E38 4-pot brembo's, custom steel braided hoses, Eibach pro-kit springs, Koni sport absorbers. 170hp and 200Nm @ the wheels. The car has good acceleration, good braking and handling for such an old chassis. Quality is good save for the rubber and plastic parts having to endure the heat of the sun.

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

Pros: I love it!

Cons: Not enough power! Hehe

My Bmw 525i — I just got my BMW 525i from my Aunt Sue, and it's awesome! I've dreamed of having a car for a long time, and to get one this sweet is just amazing. I can't even believe I got it! It's a 1995, and it's very fun to drive. I love having a sunroof! The acceleration is very nice for a V6, and the handling is phenomenal. It looks very classy, something I love in a car. Overall awesome car.

Pros: Awesome car.

Cons: Terrible cupholders.

The Silver Beauty — One of the best performing cars I've ever had. Great for racing or even cruising down the road. The car corners very well at high speed and the break system is amazingly responsive and safe. You can feel the road condition through the steering wheel.

Pros: Handling, acceleration, stability

Cons: electrical systems (AC)

1995 Bmw 540i — Performance of this car is truly awesome. Acceleration, braking and overall handling of the car can take your breath away. The appearance of the car is timeless. I have been asked by many people questions about the car but when they ask about the build year they are shocked. The E34 will never go out of style. The quality of the car is "German" everything fits and everything has purpose. When you first get in and shut the door you know the car is of the highest quality. The cost of ownership is BMW. It really doesnt cost anymore then many other cars to repair. I am fairly handy and will always do my own repairs. Things like oil changes, brakes, fluid changes are a snap and the preventative maintenance is the biggest thing of this or any car. The E34 540i has the highest fun factor of any car I have ever driven and can still have 4 adults in the car and seated comfortably. But I must say its when i'm alone and driving that I find myself taking the long way home just for the enjoyment of the car.

Pros: Great car all around fun to drive.

Cons: Some repairs can be pretty expencive

Fun To Drive, Not To Fix. — I have owned this car now for about a year, and unfortunately at 190,000kms, it is having some transmission problems. The car has been great to drive, super fast, accelerates with ease. Gas mileage increases greatly when you use premium gas, all around an alright car.

Pros: Syle, speed.

Cons: Transmission, fuel economy.

Greatest Mid-sized Sedan Of 1995! — Well for a 525i my BMW has pretty good pick up. Although it is a very heavy car and I like to call it the tank, it accelerates quite fast. The handling and breaking are great. The car is very fun to drive and drift in. It looks great runs solid and is very safe...like a tank! The gas mileage I guess is ok considering its a 95'. It gets about 22 in the city and 24-25 on the highway. I would definitely recommend this car to a friend because its safe, fast, fun, and it's quite the reliable car and a big bang for your buck! I bought mine used for only 4 grand and it's been great for over a year now.

Pros: Great handling and very safe. Fast enough for a thrill.

Cons: Miles per gallon is only 22 on average.

Bmw E34 540i Touring —

Bought as a short term solution for a month to sell on, now planning to keep it 6 months. Excelent car, bought it for a bargin price (£500) and has served me well so far. Fiirst automatic car i've woned and its wonderfully lazy. Big 4.0l V8 just keeps going and going. Keep wanting to take it to the Nurburgring, but it'll be an expensive trip there and back. Performance - Incredible for the size of car, 5 series estate isnt small, but the 540 had the biggest engine and loads of torque. 7.7 seconds to 60 and something in excess of 150 top speed. Build Quality - Very few problems, a few pieces of trim in the boot which i've caught loading or fixing have come off, otherwise, perfect. Might as well be made of old Tanks, its that tough. Apperance - Classic looking executive estate, looks better than the saloon in my optinion. almost a GT Tourer. Purposeful on the road with performance to match. Cost of Ownership - Parts can be expensive, fuel more so. 20mpg on average, sometimes less, sometimes more (27mpg is the best on a long run). Bought for £500, so it cant really depreciate further, roll on the service... Fun Factor - Amazing, a proper wolf in sheeps clothing. Sumptous luxury, and more extras than some new cars of similar class today. Everyone needs to own a V8 once, theres no better feeling, short of perhaps a V10 or a V12, but nothing sounds the same.

Pros: Huge, Powerful, Luxury

Cons: Fuel, oh god the fuel....
