Traded in a 525i for a wagon for more
room. One of the best handling and
performing cars; even in a wagon! The
controls and build are solid and well
placed. I get between 25-28 mpg on the
highway fully loaded with kids. The
rear wheel drive layout is perfectly
matched to the smooth six. You don't
even feel the transmission changing
gears as you do in American cars.
Everything feels solid about the car.
Engine and interior. Excellent braking
and handling. Controls and makeup of
interior are of top-notch materials.
Car is built like a bank vault yet
rides and handles like a sports car.
BMW knows how to build cars!
More rear seat space; some what tight
with childs seat.
