You know what they are like trying to find the indicator stalk so I think that was a good idea to make them big :} :}

All round leccy windows and only manual seats? I know the mk3 zetec mondy is like that but even that has an electric up n down on it. I really though bmw would have put leccy seats in?

edit.... nice car btw :L I just thought even a base model beemer would have leccy seats.

Nearly went and brought one of those before I got the ST, and I am glad I didnt. the 2.0 6 pot is just not up to the job in the 5 series. I bet you dont keep it long.

I know it drives very well, but they just dont go. You should have gone for the 535, thats an awsome car!

the 520 engine imho is up to the job, its got 150bhp and pulls very well for what i want it for. i dont take it above 2500 revs and only drive to college and back.

not that i am ever going to do this but the 0-60 time is 9.8 which isnt that slow so fuc u!

i almost bought a st200 but then i didnt cos they look dated and didnt want another mondeo!

and if i was buying a car for performance i wudnt have bought it either, i have had a couple of fast cars that wud rape ur st200 all over but ive already grown out of it and dont put my foot down any more. however the 520 is excelent on the motorway once at 70 u can in 5th it pulls to 90 in no time.

gotta admit also excellent for cutting up ppl at 80mph, good at going straight from outside lane to the inside lane without indicating :D haha

nice motor mate know what you mean about the 2L they shift when you want them to also it helps being rear wheel drive

tthe other thing is they are bloody comfy as well

you should have heated seats and the electric pack was a no cost extra on the 5 series iirc but not alot opted for it

are these really your cars lol or is your dad buying and selling cars...seems a bit odd the quick turnaround in a short space of time and that your mondy is in the background as you said you sold it a while ago....

just my opinion, and flames are expected lol

nice car though :L

Very nice car mate! I wanted a 5 series before i bought my ZS, but couldnt find a 525d within my budget that was cheap enough or that didnt have mighty miles on the clock! Have a chat with [color:eek:range]fellie[/color] cos hes Admin for a 5 series website and used to have a 528i. Anything you want to know and im sure he will be able to help you. :L
