#268 of 379 Owner of 2000 528iA
May 19, 2002 (12:34 am)
Just purchased my Titanium Silver 528iA in December 2001. The car is fabulous. The features:
Aerodynamics by AC Schnitzer
Premium stereo w/cassette & 6-Disc CD Changer
12 speaker system...
and those darn cup holders.
I upgraded from a 1995 Nissan Maxima. Thought that BMW's were overrated. Now after six months, I realize why my friends are enthusiasts. So am I. I look forward to chatting with you all soon.
#269 of 379 BMW CPO? BMW FS?

mkharris01... Did you go CPO thru BMW NA? Did you purchase it thru BMW FS?
I bought my '98 540i6 on 11/30/01. Love it. I went CPO. And got my loan thru BMW FS. Only 3.9% and they made first month's payment.
Know you'll enjoy the car (though I much prefer manuals)!

You got a great rate. I purchased mine CPO via Beverly Hills BMW. I financed it myself 5.9%. The deal was too good to pass...they added the CD player, performed minor body work (dings) at my request and extended the warranties at no additional cost. Only 29,100, miles under $34K.
I actually like the steptronic...but manual would have been sweeter. Take care.

I'm not a new member, nor is my car brand new anymore. But I just learned of this particular forum, so I thought I'd introduce "Jackson," the name ascribed to my 530i (my fiancee just suggested the name, and it sort of stuck for no explicable reason). Anyway, here I am with it on the day of delivery in the Spartanburg Performance Center (a delivery option I highly recommend doing, by the way):

Since your post is from February, I'll post an abridged answer: Athens BMW. I live in Roswell, but have been extremely happy so far with them, and can recommend them without hesitation. If you're still looking, shoot me an email and I'd be happy to discuss this further (in return for a ride in your new M5, of course ).
#273 of 379 Considering BMW
Jul 14, 2002 (9:04 am)
I presently have a 2000 MB E320. While loving its good looks and handling, I'm totally disgusted with all the repairs and back and forth trips to the dealership.
Have any of you people out there ever had a MB and switched to BMW (5 series)??
If so, how would you compare the two.
#274 of 379 Bring to Main 5 Series Board: Considering BMW

parfive1... You'll get a lot more responses if you bring your post above to the attention of the main 5 Series Board here at Edmunds.
#275 of 379 Need Hands Free Cell Phone Kit
Jul 17, 2002 (4:33 pm)
Anyone with any ideas on hands free cell phone kit that will work with 530i. Totally not worth paying for BMW cell phone/kit/voice set. Over 2K and then return it after 3 yrs (if you're leasing). Besides you get a Timeport which will be obsolete very soon. I'd like to set up something that will look good and function well. Anyone with any ideas??

I am looking at buying my first(used) bmw. I am either looking at a 528 or 540. Either a 1999 or 2000. What is the difference between the model year. If the 540 worth the price difference. Please let me know the pros and cons. I would the xexon headlights. Are these an option in that model year, or can I add them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
