Hey all. Of course I know there is a size difference, ie power, features etc. But what I really want to know from all you BMW experts is 525i, 530i,or 540i. From all that I've read here, I get the feeling the better of the 3 is the 530i. I know that the 540 is nice, but not too sure if I really need an 8cyl. I've also read that the difference between the 525 and the 530 is obvious. I appreciate any help. BTW' does this sound like a decent deal?
2001 530i with nav, 46k, prem pkg AT for $35,000???? Thanks again!

Here's a link to an autotrader.com search with 500 2001 530i's for sale.

You should be able to get some guidance by comparing your deal to what you can find on that link.

Be sure and get a dealer/independent BMW mechanic/AAA inspection before buying it. Also ask for maint. records. If the car is being maintained by a dealer, you can call the dealer with the VIN and ask to see a printout of the maint./repairs done on the car.

imo, all the models can reach the top speed and handle it well. The difference is how quickly you want to get there.

Good luck.
