Love at first sight

Advantagesfast and furious

Disadvantagescan be expensive

"The car I'm talking about is not the newer model,it's the older one,around the "c" plate. It has full body trim,heavily tinted windows and is in racing red.The engine has been super chipped and it purrs like nothing else I have ever heard. A fast road cam,and 4 1/2" big bore exhaust added to this 3 1/2 litre stright 6 monster. With 2 pot calliper brakes running on Mintex discs and pads all round,with goodridge hoses made stopping possible.Whilst ..." Read review

The lesser known 5!

AdvantagesLuxury, Style, Effortless cruising, Indestructability and sheer pace!

DisadvantagesSlightly high running costs

"...want to maintain a full BMW service history then it can become quite costly, but as very few things ever actually go wrong with the car, costs shouldn't be too high. The car has an instant read out on the dash to tell you when it is due its next service which is also very handy. If you are looking for a mid-to-large size car, but want something with a bit of sporting appeal, then you really cant go wrong with a 535i, if you want a second hand car ..." Read review

E34 3500cc Engine 1989 Model

AdvantagesVery Comfortable

DisadvantagesNot very sporty

"This is my first BMW and I would certainly have another one. I was looking for a big car ready to carry 2 kids and lots of luggage. I do lots of long journeys (750 miles in one go) and a car with a slighlty upper class immage. This BMW has met all bar one of my expectations. Although this is not a slow car, it is not a fast car and neither is it a sporty car. The 0-60 time is about 7.6 seconds and the surspention is far to soft for cornering hard ..." Read review

BMW 535i / E34

AdvantagesWell-built, Reliable, comfortable, easy-to-drive family car

DisadvantagesTad of the thirsty side!

"I have an E34 535 which I have had for around 6 months now, I previously had a Subaru Impreza, so to be honest I was assuming that although it's an older car I didn't think I'd see much difference.. Wow I was wrong! The car is a stunning car, not much of a head-turner such as my old car was, and also it's a heavier car, but it definitely has the power behind it to push most other cars along. The best thing about this car is the noise that you get ..." Read review

Quick review of BMW 535i

"I drive a 535i and love it to bits,it does exactly what it says on the box,great ecceleration,performance and very smooth and luxiourious. However this is the only car i have had so many reoccuring problems with. As well as the common problem with the cooling bottle i have had the heat exchanger changed to new twice due to water leaks, the gascket changed and even had new tyers as my loyalty to BMW which has costed a nice 1500 pounds. The problem still is not fixed and the car is still leaking water. I think BMW should revise thier customer services and find another way to finance the racing team. ME? i'd probably go back with Mercedes.

Advantagescomfortable ,stylish. a dream!!!

Disadvantageslooking under the bonnet can be pricey

"...when you walk into a bmw service centre, athough they do throw in a free valet!! the major problem i had was with my r reg, the cattalittic (prob spelt wrong) converters needed replacing, i found out it was one of the problems with that particular model, and was kindly charged £1600 for my troubles!! the newer models are definately for someone who doesn't mind sheeling out to bmw for the services to keep the record up, petrol consumption was about ..."

Quick review of BMW 535i

"I bought an 03 reg, last of the old shape before the new controversial lumpy version. Very impressed indeed, the auto version is a must for complete comfort in a car that just wants to be let loose.
