Wife surprised me with a 2006 525i...any thoughts?

It currently has about 40K miles. Seems to run good. Clean, engine is quiet. Are there any quirks that I should know about? What should I watch out for?

Thanks,

Balbs

I don't BMW is for anybody. First thing you want to do is to learn how to love the car and enjoy having fun driving an ultimate driving machine. Then, whatever follows will be easier and understanding! BMW is trully uniqe brand of car that stands apart from any other cars. As time goes by, you will understand what I am saying!

525i is simple design car so you should have less problems and good gas mileage. You will learn to love the car because it is really a good driving machine.
