The BMW 530i 5 speed manual is
an unusual combination of
contradictory elements, luxury,
sports car and sedan all wraped into
one - excelling in multiple
personalities and demanding in it's
attention . The manual stick is by far
the most demanding I have driven.
The car and I are still bondinng after
almost 3000 miles and will so.
Interior is deceptively large . Engine
never lacks for power - power band
in any gear . DSP audio is great.
Phone system/computer the best.
Cup holders, larger glove box and in
dash multiple CD with Cassette.
Lower cost - expensive with options.
