As long as he doesn't try to burn out the transmission and knows how to take proper care then he's fine, you won't need to think about fixing. We're almost as sick of writing them in full as you are of reading them. Part of me wants to drive this car for a very long time but another part wants to upgrade to a 540 or 550.
Available with either an automatic or a manual transmission, the car gets reasonable gas mileage. The fix requires drilling out three aluminum screws, threading the holes again, and putting in new screws. This has caused me to have the car go out of control when it was snowing. Not that there's anything new in that notion. My car runs well and my checkbook is intact. How could you possibly miss such fundamental styling changes? Michael answered 6 years ago As someone who actually owns a '01 E39, unless your son is into turning wrenches, there is plenty to learn about one of the most sought after Bimmers ever built.
Seldom has the wisdom of awaiting a model cycle's mid-life before signing the lease been so crystalline. As to what's new within the 530i, two innovations vie for the most welcome. This is controlled not by a conventional gearstick but an electronic selector lever. In the 335i and 535i, check for problems with the fuel pump if the car takes a long time to crank and idles roughly from a cold start. But they keep adding features I don't want.
The 525i, 530i and 535 were offered with an inline-6 engine. Who we are: We try to be a helpful discussion-driven community while maintaining high-quality discourse and topical content. I was not aware of this repair at the time of purchase as it did not show up on CarProof or CarFax. Trim piece had been repaired while under warranty, but continues to be a problem.

Both weigh in at slightly above 3,000 pounds, which means the 300-hp is able to produce high speeds. The 328i for 2009 — 2011 gets better than average ratings.
It does need some struts replaced but they said it wasn't something that needed to be done now and the car was in great shape. Buyers can select either standard rear-wheel drive or all-wheel. If the owner did as the factory suggested and changed the oil every 10k miles, stay away. Can not get it out of the steering wheel lock mode that shows in the instrument cluster. Failures of the fuel pumps and the fuel injectors are also common. The newer cars have a much wider center console that takes up a lot of leg room.
All models are automatic transmission. I was impressed with the price and quality of the work. When our vehicles--an Avalon and a Tacoma--need something, they let us know. It was only in the car for one month. Everything is great except for there is not a lot of compartments to put sunglasses, notepads, or little extras you may need. One word of advice, though: get service records.
A burnt oil smell was reported quite often due to oil leaks. They even offered to keep the car in their garage until I flew out there to pick it up. Would be nice if the winter package heated the windshield jets as that is a problem. Room for legs in front is large, but not so in back which is quite limited. The main problems occur in the electrical system and the cooling system for the engine. Please message the mods by and we'll manually release it! They were friendly, professional and more important.

The All-Wheel drive system works well and gives fantatic traction. I feel that if the battery did not die due to it sitting, this should never have been an issue.
The connector for the positive battery cable connector and the corresponding terminal on the fuse box may degrade over time. They have been faithfully servicing my cute little hardtop convertible ever since. Also, it would have been easy for them to sell me an extremely expensive part, but since they found that wasn't the root problem, they sent me on my way with a much smaller bill. Just wish they were here in Texas! The 1-Series has rear-wheel drive, and seats four, though two people must make do with the very limited rear seating arrangement. Car had to be towed to the dealer.
