Toiling along with domestic sedans and
import SUVs, I waited too long to shop
for a BMW sedan. Better late than
never. The 530 is a great car. Fun to
drive is an understatement. I tested
all of the 5 series sedans, and the 530
was the goldilocks of the bunch for me.
525 a little too weak, 540 a little too
strong (for my needs - it is a great
car, but I live a few thousand miles
from the autobahn). My 530 has the
sport and premium packages, which I
highly recommend. This is without a
doubt the most responsive car I have
ever driven. Safety features are very
Driver and passenger comfort,
Sport transmission, Steptronic.
Improve the cupholders - they are too
small. 1/2 inch wider and 1 inch
higher would make a big difference.
