ReviewOver audi a6, lexus gs300, I chose BMW 530ia with prem&sports pkg. The engine is more than adequate with rich torque across the band for everyday commute and some fun in between. The sports seats with the thigh support is a plus for 6+footers like myself. sport suspension is a little firmer than standard but still provides comfortable ride and minimal bodyroll in corners. Interior and exterior designs are one of the classics. And the smooth inline6 which hums the best engine music in its class. Of course, you can hardly hear it in low rpms. overall, it's a joy to drive and ride.I often have to beg my fiancee(The car was bought for her)for the keys.
Best FeaturesSmooth engine and beautiful tone at higher rpms. Classic designs and logical controls. A true sports sedan.
Worst FeaturesCupholder-remove or enlarge. I can barely squeeze in a 12oz DrPep. Two rearview mirrors could be larger. Too much brake dust.
