2001 BMW 5 Series Owners Manual – BMW’s 5 Series remains to be the perfect midsize luxury sports sedan. Every single model presents a distinctive character and price range, and are amazing cars in their own personal correct.
The 5 Series sports wagons (525iT and 540iT) are great. They provide far better dealing with than any sport-utility vehicle and performance than most sedans; judged rationally, they make a much more sense than BMW’s very own X5.
A new 525i sedan declines the price of entrance for 2001, and several small styling alterations freshen the physical appearance of all models.
BMW’s 5 Series consists of three sedans and 2 wagons. Retail store price ranges for sedans: 525i ($35,400); 530i ($39,400); 540iA ($51,100); 540i ($53,900). Wagons: 525iT ($37,200); 540iT ($53,480).
525i, 530i, and 525iT sports wagon appear virtually identically provided with a very long listing of common gear and leatherette (vinyl fabric) covers. Montana leather material covers ($1275) is non-obligatory. The 530i will get intelligent air conditioning, rather of the guidebook handles on the 525 models. Each now come with 16-inches rims, however with a diverse design to tell apart the 530i.

For 2001, BMW improved the styling of the 5 Series, which include a reshaped entrance renal-shaped grille, new entrance illumination products, a new entrance spoiler, new spherical front side fog lamps, new rear lighting effects clusters with reddish LEDs for increased trustworthiness and for a longer time support lifestyle, body-shade part moldings and bumper pieces.
Or else, the 5 Series remains to be immediately well-known as a BMW using its beautifully proportioned facial lines, and elegant front and rear fascia. The overall design of the 5 Series body is a well-carried out evolution of a good looking basic design that dates back more than two ages.
The 5 Series interior receives high markings for comfort and look. Trim is appealing. The leatherette that comes regularly on 525 and 530 models is attractive, with brushed-light weight aluminum features. The container seats feel as if buckets; they cover close to your lumbar region and derriere. Our car did not include a Freezing Weather Package ($600) so that we overlooked the heated up seats.
The 530i’s engine is smooth and responsive. It glides together softly when sailing, feeling like finely designed devices. Independence from vibration is a built-in reward of inline-6 engines, and BMW’s are amongst the best.
Nail the throttle and there’s a growl akin to BMW’s competition engines. There’s also fast throttle reply: the 530i takes off like a rocket.
