Looks/drives great for a 16 year old daily driver

Edmunds.com logo Edmunds.com 9/7/2015 Rulrand Wiehl

I have owned my 528i for almost five years and love it! Bought it with 43,000 miles on it and have driven it to 102,000 mostly commuting.Have had a few repairs ( radiator, nav system) but it has not been terrible as I use an indie shop.BMW even agreed to help me replace a bad nav unit and now that works great, and I saved about $3,000 dollars ( you read it right) installing a used part.As a road car it is really superb. Great ride and feels like a tank. Decent mpg overall ( 24).. Best of all mine is CLEAN. Looks new really and people are starting to comment as it is increasingly older. I took a risk buying a ten year old car, but it's worked out great for me and I really respect the brand.As an update, recently (end 2015) the ABS module failed, but the car is still driveable, just not with ABS if needed. The replacement cost is 1600 dollars-so the future ability to kep this car hinges on the number of such repairs that are needed.Update(9/16) no further mechanccal problems. car has 120K now and still drives excellently as a commuter car.It still looks great and drives beautifully.
