Pros: The Sport Package rims
Cons: Cupholders suck
Advice: make sure you purchase the extended warrantyThis is the best BMW I have driven. I have driven the 7 and the 3, one is too big and one is too small. This model is perfect. Handling is amazing. Its performance and handling has saved me from a couple of accidents that would have been unavoidable had I been driving another car. I choose this model over the new style because this model in my opinion has the true BMW 'look'. My 02 BMW 525i with sport package is one I plan on keeping for a long time!!

Advice: Buy it with a sunroofThis is a very nice and quality car. It has all the necessary features you want and highly quality made. Like its clean and simple interior design and easy reading meters, just like audiophile equipments -- simple, elegant, and quality.
Pros: manuel transmission
Advice: if you got the cash, go for the m5. the 525 has a weak engine at 185hpok this car is pretty good. the quilty of the matials are very good. theres only 1 problem though. for a BMW i expect a high performance car but this car is somehow lacking performance. the engine is 185hp which is pretty low. the acura 3.2tl type-s has 260hp and is A Lot cheaper than the 525i.
