2004 BMW 5 Series Sedan 530i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

This is a great car for those who love to drive. The handling is the best I've ever driven (better than the previous model 530), and the car sticks to the road even in the fastest and sharpest turns. The interior layout is a big improvement over the previous model because of higher quality materials, more luxurious layout, and fewer buttons crowding the dash.


Best Features

IDrive is great once you get used to it. It's challenging at first, but very useful (and fun) after a day or two. The steptronic transmission is sharp and responsive. The car is full of creature comforts.


Worst Features

Currently Navigation and Satellite radio do not work together, hopefully this will be fixed soon.

Review

This is the most fun car I have ever driven. I love the way exterior looks. It is definately in the top 5 best looking cars on the road, definately the car with a serious "PRESENCE"! I- Drive is very easy and can be learned in a very short time. The comfort seats are awesome. Premium sound is awesome. I test drove MB E500 and it is a very nice car as well but this new 5 series is definately more fun to drive, handles better and to me, it looks way more interesting.


Best Features

V8, Comfort Seats, Premium Sound, Active Steering, Adaptive Headlights, Active Roll Suspension


Worst Features

More options in the I-Drive. There aren't that many options there. You can't blame BMW for that though. There are still some who are arguing that I- Drive is hard as it is. Geeeeez
