My BMW IS MY BABY AND NO OTHER CAR COMPARISON!!

2003 BMW 5 Series 525i

I love my Beemer!! It drives very smoothly and takes corners like it should!! It has awesome pick up speed and never disappoints me when I am showing it off! It may be an older car but it is still beautiful! It is green, the color of money but has not ever put me in the poor house with repairs. The interior is tan and the heated leather seats are an extra I would never pass up when trading in for a newer model. The stereo system is great as well the only complaint being the speakers are not the greatest and are a bit disappointing when wanting to jam!

A well built long lasting car that is overly expensive to fix.

2003 BMW 5 Series 525i

Great reliable car. Sturdy and well built. Still going strong with 230000 miles! But when the car has to be fixed it is ridiculously expensive. Lots of unnecessary features for me. The motor is good but many of the smaller parts on the car are broken and need to be fixed, but with such expensive repair costs I let this smaller stuff go.

The car is not in the best shape but can be fixed up and repaired.

2003 BMW 5 Series 525i

Has a oil leak and the windows do not work, the seats are messed up and the carpet has stains. The car needs new struts and it needs new headlights. It just got a new turning signal. It is great on Gas and is a manual 6 speed car, or gas over 200,000 miles on it and I have had it for 3 years.
