Consthirsty, unweildy around town,

After a 5 month spell in a 316i SE (2000) the 525i SE was a major change for me and came supplied with a vast amount of pleasant surprises and disappointments.

“My BMW 525i 2003 Review”

ProDrive, Looks

ConsComfort, Interior

I've driven my 525i for about 6 months now. Stacked on over 13k miles and have taken it to Las Vegas and San Diego. The advantages of this car was it's driveability, looks and warranty.
