"We purchased our 2006 525xi as a Certified Pre-Owned from a BMW dealership in 2008. I can barely tell that we're not the first owners of this car. The only thing I honestly have to complain about is the fact that repairs can be costly. The sound system isn't the best out there, and there's no place to plug in a phone or iPod, and Bluetooth doesn't allow you to stream audio. The AWD works great, though, and it is a quiet car. The coating on the faux wood trim has started to become dull, but I haven't tried polishing it yet. The iDrive system can also be slow to respond at times. But overall, a nice family sedan, which is what we purchased it for."

"Car is a bit under powered, but it is truly a joy to drive. I have 165k miles on it with nothing more than routine maintenance and a water pump. Great car, very reliable, solid quality machine. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get into the BMW market cheap."

"I love this car. Solid! Drives like a sports car. Most of all the handling and response has kept me out of many freeway accidents. Yes it is expensive to repair, however I'm alive and that's fine with me. I am thinking I will hold on to this car and just keep driving it. Three more months of payments and after that the repairs won't seem that bad."
