A fantastic high performance vehicle for silly mon...

Not a lot! Well, maybe the boot space.

I recently changed my taxi. (For the second time this year!) My old car was a BMW 525TDS which I'd run for about 3 years (and about 90,000 miles) practically trouble free, so my first choice of vehicle when looking about for a change of car was another diesel BMW. Unfortunately I was waylaid and...

“The Ultimate Machine”

Road Manners, Comfort, Its a BMW, Fuel Economy

Can be hairy in the wet, poor stereo

The BMW 5 Series was first launched in 1972 and the first model was known as the E12. The vehicle is a medium executive and nowadays competes with cars like the Audi A6 and Mercedes E Class. Quality and reliability on the very early cars was patchy to say the least and they did have a tendency to...

BMW Drivers, V Poor Hifi considering price,

I have had VW Passat, Audi A4 both 1.9TDI 130BHP, both covering 130K miles in 3 years with very little consequence. The move to BMW was to fulfil a childhood desire to own one of the best automotive marques available. I now have a 2002 BMW 530d M-Sport, Manual, Black, Leather, Sat Nav. The drive...

“Getting on but still great.”

published 08/04/2003

Great all-rounder

fairly large car..... fairly large price

(Our 530d is a 'T' Reg registered in March '99, and cost around £30k) Although the current 5 Series is aproaching the end of it's shelf life (the new model should be available in Sept '03), it is still one of the best cars out there. The 530d in particular is a first class car with great all...

Having recently purchased an ex-demo 530D late-2003... one of the last of the line before the new version came out (love it or hate it the new shape is certainly eye-catching)… we have been absolutely bowled over by the Beemer. Firstly the engine is simply superb... we chose the automatic box...

“530D. A joy to own.”

published 06/12/2007

Power, luxury and ecomomy.

Cost, especially when you start adding options.

Having previously owned the fabulous BMW 3ltr engine in an E46 330D, i decided to upgrade to the 530D with a larger boot space. Best descision i have made for a long time. The car oozes luxury! Excellent ride, awesome power delivery through the automatic gearbox and a shape that just grows on you...

Quality , Power , Style , Handling

Slightly smaller than Merc E class internally

530d Msport Touring .Quite simply Outstanding in all departments . The only possible improvement would be to make it slightly bigger to match the E class for space . BMW have regained top position for refinement , quality and value that Merc had in 90's . Quality Merc engineering is now let down...

In short: excellent handling and performance, fun and sporty to drive compared to it's rivals (Audi A6 and E class Merc), good fuel economy, good quiet engine. But... it has downsides! There is no point bying it if you don't have money to pay the pricy service costs. A problem among all BMW's is that they brake very often. It's i-drive is still hard to get used to. Concerning 530d, it is ideal as a city car. If you are a BMW lover, then it is is for you

After two Volvo V70s we've recently defected to BMW - a major factor for this was the additional power of the 3 litre diesel and our hankering after a real 'driver's car' as opposed to the comfortable sofa-like driving of the Volvo. The BMW is incredible on the road, great road holding, awesome...

To be honest, I can't find any

My second E39 5 series, and when I thought that my first 530 was good, it just keeps on getting better. I'm comparing a 530i to a 530d, and I'd never revert to petrol, this diesel combines the refinement of a petrol, the oomph of something much larger in the cube's, the torque unbelievably, and...

“Good, even for a beemer”

published 09/10/2000

Relatively good for a Beemer

A tad pricey

I was lucky enough to drive a friend's 530d one Sunday afternoon and boy did I like it. It was much more of a car than I will be able to afford for a long time. The interior is so well crafted and is designed the way things should be. It was very comfortable and well appointed. Once driving, I...
