BMW 5-Series 2008 Overview

The new 5-Series reared its rakish head back in 2004. Facelifted for 2006, the extensive models available include the 523i, 525i, 530i, and, newly replacing the 545i are the 540i and the 550i. The 5-Series is available in both saloon and Touring wagon platforms, but the slow-selling wagons are not actively peddled in this region. The exterior design by Chris Bangle is controversial, especially the aptly-named "Bangle-butt" rear end. Its iDrive system has been simplified compared to the first-generation system that debuted in the 7-Series. It can be ordered with options such as Active Cruise Control, head-up display, active steering and a Harman Kardon Logic7 stereo system. Most of the 5-Series models are capable of high speeds but the electronic 250 kph limiter on all cars means that both the 530i and the M5 have the same top speed.

BMW 5-Series 2008 Reliability & Resale Value

Resale Value
Known Problems Tyre pressure monitor may give wrong readings. Roaring sound becomes significant on runflat tyres after 20,000 kms, and some reports of low-profile ones losing pressure, but replaced under warranty. Steering rack may leak fluid out of end seal and into track-rod end gaiter. BMW claims "lifetime" automatic transmission fluid so dealer will never change blackened fluid during service intervals, so owners should get it changed independently every 80,000 kms. Battery may die overnight if the key is left in the ignition. The "check engine" light may turn on and a rattling noise heard from engine is due to leak in oil line for variable valve timing system. Six-cylinder engines may overheat due to one or more problems with the electric water pump. Speedometer needle may vibrate at idle, fixed by reprogramming.
