    Bmw 528i Smashes Shane's V6 Mustang — performance-0-100 in under 20 seconds, good braking, tight handling, a little tail-happy, but suprisingly controllable. build qaulity- excellent, german made door trim is the only thing starting to fall apart in this 10 year old car. appearance - gorgeous car even though its 10 years old it is one of the better looking cars on the road. cost of ownership - great gas mileage 28 highway, 23 city (ish) when cruising the mpg meter is capable of staying above 40. Fun factor - Two thumbs way up, never bored in this car

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

    Pros: Superb handling

    Cons: Not enough OMPH!

    Sexy!!! — BMW 528i, 2.8L 6 Cylinder. I suppose it rocks after stepping up from a camry, It goes pretty good for a family car. Its great fun to drive, especially when the traction control is turned off. Would recommend a BMW to anyone looking for a nice car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its A BMW

    Cons: It Could Go A Bit Faster

    Best Of The Best — The E39 is simply the best looking sedan ever made. It is clean, tight, classy and sporty yet can still tote the family around. Make sure you buy one equipped with a sport package (you can tell by the shadow line trim as opposed to chrome and the 3 spoke steering wheel vs the non-sport 4 spoke). Handling is incredible in the 528i. Although it doesn't have the ponies of the 540i, it is quite a ride and you make up for it in fuel economy. Maintenance is expensive (unless you do it yourself). All in all, the best car I have ever owned for the first 120k miles!!!!

    Pros: Performance, Handling, Appearance

    Cons: Cup holders suck.

    528it Sport Wagon...why Would You Want A Minivan Or Suv? — All the great stuff you've heard about the E39 5-series is true. If you need a full-size sport sedan, this is it. If you want a more flexibility and space, get the Sport Wagon. The 2.8L inline-6 is surprisingly quick, and consistently returned 21 mpg or better - I'm confident it will last forever. Poise, ride and handling, are incredible. The interior isn't quite as nice as my Audi A6, but the exterior is arguably better-looking. Reliability has been good for a German car, but when it's time to replace stuff, parts are German car pricey (as expected).

    Pros: If you haven't had an E39 5-series, you don't know what you're missing

    Cons: Cheesiest cup-holders in the world, repairs and maintenence get expensive very quickly

    E39 540ia — This would have to be one of my favorite cars. Big body with a powerful V8 and 6 spd. This car had more power than most cars on the road and it was a 4 door. Not as powerful as an M5 but enough.

    Pros: Powerful V8, 6 spd, 4 doors

    Cons: Totalled

    Bmw 528i — I love brand, engine, interior, exterior. I just love my car, BMW is my favorite brand. Hope to get BMW M5 soon. BMW is the best brand all over the world. I think europe, particularly Germany is the leader in automobile manufacturing, but BMW is the best like I already told :)

    Pros: Engine, driver friendly interior and agresive exterior

    Cons: I don't disscuss negative aspeqts of my friend with strangers :)))

    Bmw 540i — Great torque, a bit on the heavy side compared to the 3 series before, but lowering the car and changing the computer management system along with the exhaust system helped a lot. Great quality could use a new interior as the years are starting to show. An IPOD auxiliary plug would have been helpful.

    Pros: Engine, quality of workmanship

    Cons: Not really environment friendly

    Bmw 540i — The solid THUD when you shut the door, the absolute silence and absence of road noise while driving, the ease at which it cruises along, & the instant response & surge of power when you step down on the accelerator. Haven't had it for to long but so far it's been great. Can't wait to see how it drives in the snow. Extremely comfortable, all options.

    Pros: Great drive, power & responsiveness & great gas mileage on the open road for a 4.4ltr V8

    Cons: Around town Gas mileage

    Overall, A Great Car — Solid construction for body and chassis but engine built with parts that fail sooner than they should in a German car. I enjoyed the plush seats and the auto-sensing wipers. 0 to 60 in well under 6 seconds. Not a car for those who don't have big pockets for repairs and a backup car.

    Pros: Smooth, Fast, Nice Fit and Finish

    Cons: reliability of engine
