    You Should Try One...you'll Love It! — If you like a high class four door sedan and you don't want to pay yourself to a sickness, this is a car for you. It has good maneuverbility, good driving dynamics and it just looks great. Its shapes avoid time like a time machine...BMW has that special gift! Build quality is high from inside and outside. My own example is equipped with three liter straight six turbodiesel engine. With 193hp and 440Nm it has great acceleration and top speed...with a minor fuel consumption when compared to those benefits. And it just handles great! Maintenance cost are quite normal, except turbocharger and suspension. And fun factor...yes, this car is very fun to drive!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Lots of torque!

    Cons: None!

    Best Car I Ever Owned. Car And Driver Gave It Its Highest Ratings In 2002, No Other Sedan Has Ever. — Handles great, goes for what it is. Looks sexy with minor mods. Not expensive, its cheap to maintine. Not boring to drive. Has its noises, but from driving it hard. Car is super fun to drive, only down fall, eats rear tires fast.

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

    Pros: Fun

    Cons: Don't go buy one!

    2002 Bmw 530i M Package — I love absolutely everything about the E39. The angel eye head lights and jeweled taillights were upgraded for this model year. The M package upgrades to 17'' BBS wheels, M steering wheel, and every option offered for the car. When you stomp your foot down to pass, the car launches even at highway speeds, and if you buy one, you will be infinitely happy!!

    Pros: It's German

    Cons: Repair costs

    Bmw 520i E39 Model Year 2002 — Great acceleration and engine sound, but high fuel consumption inside town. The car drives superbly at high speeds. One main problem that I face is that there are a lot of plastic parts that seem to break easily. Replacement of these parts can be very costly sometimes.

    Pros: Great value for money!

    Cons: Difficult to park due to it's large size.

    02 Bmw 540i M Sport — Its a 2002 BMW 540i M Sport! Awesome car, Top Speed = 164 mph! The body lines are awesome. the looks are helped out by having 19" M5 wheels. The color is a Gray that is very close to the natural color of the M5 wheels.

    Pros: The design, performance, hanling, and comfort!

    Cons: The Local Dealers are Terrible, except for BMW of North Houston

    525i Sport Wagon — This sports wagon can haul he family, then tote the mail. The M package makes this car handle at any speed around any curve. I never thought I'd say this but...my station wagon rips! The only bad side is the aggressive camber settings wear the insides of the tires excessively.

    Pros: Performance and space for all your stuff...pretty sweet.

    Cons: Tire wear.

    Had To Trade It For More Engine Power — love the 5 series appearance. the fit and finish of this car was very good. problem was it couldn't get out of its own way on the road. total dog of an engine. steering was light, and suspension sloppy. rear bucket seats bad for baby seat but great for adults. the fully adjustable seats were way better than the same on a more modern X5

    Pros: its a bimmer

    Cons: engine and handling
