    I Love(d) My Car — I never was looking for a BMW, but when I test drove my car, it was instant love. The thrill I got every time I unlocked my car and slid my butt on the leather seats was worth the money. It's a deceptive sports car in a sedan-like body, and if I hadn't hit a patch of black ice in Montana I would still be enjoying my car right now. I will have one again as soon I have another well-paying job. I'm a BMW convert for life.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Maintenance is expensive, but if you can find reputable mechanics, not a problem

    Preformance, Quality, Looks, The Car Had It All. — This little beauty was my pride and joy for a couple of years. Mint condition 00', not my daily driver...Life was great until I totaled her in the summer of 07'. Being a 540 she had the V-8, the sport package which included a six speed manual. I put on 18" split five star chrome BMW wheels with Michelin pilot sports. I put a Benfer cold air intake on with a complete Superspring exhaust, I also the ECU programmed. Added new headlights, tailights, side markers and a spoiler, and topped it off with a stereo system.

    Pros: handling, speed, looks; virtually everything

    Cons: Maintenance can become expensive...

    Just What I Needed. — I got this one loaded--sport package, 282-way adjustable seats, premium stereo, etc. It was well worth the wallet splitting amount I paid for it.

    Pros: Just about everything

    Cons: price

    Vroom-vroom — This car had major balls with the upgrade sport/"m" package. The only reason we sold it was rear wheel drive...couldn't take it in the snow!

    Pros: sleek, fast & classy

    Cons: not made for New England Winters

    Great Alternative To An Suv If You Actually Like To Drive. — I'm very happy with this car, it took a long time to find but the wait was worth it. It's big enough for the baby, the dog, the stroller , the wife... all the stuff a family has to lug around but still drives like a German Sports Sedan. Newer 5 series are larger I think the current 3 is bigger but they dilute the BMW essence. Where else are you going to get a family friendly wagon the can do 0-60 in 5.6 seconds and loves to be thrown into a corner? If you can find a clean well maintained example jump on it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great Family car that can pull off a reasonable imitation of a sports car. Awesome power, very well balanced, great handling with the Sport package. Sport package seats are amazing, I used to think Volvo made the best seats but these may have the sweeds beat.

    Cons: Expensive. Expensive to maintain but the E39's may be the last BMW that you can DIY your own maintenance on. Cooling system is a known weak point and needs rebuild every 70,000 miles or so. If you're looking at one of these make sure all maintenance has been performed on time and documented.
