Hi there. I have both a 2003 and a 2004 530i. I'm really dissapointed with the new 5. I'm talking performance and handling wise. If you get this car on the Turnpike or any open highway on a moderate windy day, the car bounces from lane to lane like a van would do when hit by the wind. You definetely have to hold on to the steering with both hands. With my 2003 530i I can drive over 100 mph, let go of the steering and the car stays perfectly in the lane. I was wondering if there are other owners out there who might want to share your opinion on the 2004 model.
Also, the wind noise at highway speeds (loud!). The memory setting for the steering and mirrors have to be reset and readjusted every morning. The radio goes in and out randomly, already one cupholder is locked in place and won't open. This car has only 1000 miles on it. The dealer has already replaced a front tire because with less than 50 miles on it, it would not drive straight.
I wish I could return it.
