545i is pretty darn nice
By Momo on
Vehicle
2004 BMW 5 Series 525i 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 6M)
Review
I purchased a 545i today after driving a 530i Sport package demo. This car is pretty awesome. The 6 speed auto transmission was surprisingly smooth and did a nice job of kicking into lower gears coming out of the apex of my turns. Anyone who thinks the new i- Drive is difficult simply lacks any degree of common sense. I found the system easy to navigate. And BMW did a nice job of adding a menu button to get back to the main screen if you shold get lost and functional knobs for the temp control and raido volume, which pretty much eliminates the necessity to use the i-Drive when you are driving.
Favorite Features
Suspension and transmission were awesome. New dash layout is very ergonomic. Trunk space is massive compared to my old 540i.
Suggested Improvements
This car needs the 8 cylinder to make it hum. I found the 221 horses to be slightly underpowered for spirited driving. Although the torque was pretty good at the low end.
